In 1997, when Jordan Brand officially became an entity independent of Nike, the first ever womens-exclusive Team Jordan model debuted. It was the perfect method of brand expansion as it tapped into the burgeoning WNBA, which had its inaugural season in 1997, and the growing awareness and popularity of women’s basketball as a whole thanks to superstars like Cynthia Cooper and Cheryl Swoopes. While there was no true model name for this shoe (simply dubbed ‘Womens Air Jordan), it was a highly popular model around the WNBA at the time (seen below in the in-game shot), with the male counterpart finding no shame in going 1.5 sizes to cop his own pair; it carried a sleek design with the Air Jordan XIII signature ‘dimples’ on the upper, and to this day remains one of the most unique and collectible Jordan models to date. It’s not often we get to see these fifteen-year-old Jordans, but here’s a look at a Girls size of this model below; take a look and don’t forget to place your bid on the listing from sneakah_king on eBay.
