During the earlier part of the last decade, Gary Payton joined forces with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’neal (bringing Karl Malone along the way) to form a super-group of NBA All-Stars in an effort to win an NBA championship. It wasn’t exactly a glove-like fit, because the Lakers stumbled in the NBA Finals, losing to the Detroit Pistons in five games. Gary Payton was in fact a Jordan Brand athlete toward the latter end of his career, and Sneaker News already gave you a look at some of his Jordan Brand PEs, like the Air Jordan XIX, Jordan Team Flow, and even the ‘Home’ colorway of the Air Jordan XII, but here’s a look at the ‘Away’, which features a black leather upper, yellow mudguard, and Payton’s insignia stitched on the outer heels of the shoe. The bidding wars have already begun for this rare Air Jordan collectible so take a look at the images below and check out the auction from the.warehouse on eBay.
