The holiest of holy grails is the OG Air Jordan 1, worn by the man himself. What makes this pair extra special is that this PE was made particularly for Michael Jordan when he returned from a devastating foot injury in his second season. This special pair features a special harness connection to an ankle strap to provide additional stability for his ankle and feet, as well as a custom orthotic insole for additional padding/protection. This rare Air Jordan artifact is also unique in the right foot is a size 13 while the left is a half size larger at 13.5 (MJ had mis-matched feet), and the shoes itself feature a ‘TYPS’ designation, which differentiates in-game PEs from retail versions. The Air Jordan 1 was listed as one of the Top 30 shoes in Jordan Geller’s ShoeZeum – would these Game-Worn PEs be an addition soon to come? Check out the images of this rare gem below and check out the starting price of the auction from vivid.vintage on eBay.
