If you caught the Basketball feature of Sneaker News Goes Inside the ShoeZeum, you might’ve seen Jordan Geller’s baby shoes dipped in bronze, situated next to the Copper Foamposites. Although they weren’t Nikes, we’re certain Jordan would’ve worn these Baby Jordan 1s if he was a toddler during the release, but by ’85, he was well into his Nike craze. Here’s a look at an original pair of the Nike Baby Jordan 1; these have held up quite nicely in twenty-six years, a true testament to the attention to quality and detail of the older models. The upper features a stitched panels with the lace-placket edges featured a ridged sawtooth finish. The locker-themed box – one of several themed boxes of that era – is also one for the Nike history books. If you liked the Baby Grapes we showed you this past weekend, these are an extra special treat, so take a look below and check out the auction from flosa312 on eBay.
