Player exclusive sneakers are nothing new. We’re certainly in a new age with respect to the extents that people are willing to go to get their hands on those player-only pairs, but long before people were poring over images from NBA games online, they were glued to their TV screen trying to figure out what was special about that pair that Mike wore. Or how Harold Miner could have his own version of another man’s signature shoe. Or where those Air Jordan 6s that Ray Allen had at the Olympics came from. This latest episode in our ongoing series chronicling the Sneakers That Ignited The Sample & PE Craze deals with those sort of shoes.

More recently we’ve seen player exclusives teeter on the edge of retail releases – we’re sure you can recall when folks across the internet were anticipating pairs like the Carmelo Anthony and the CP3 making it to retail. When they didn’t, it only seemed to increase the level of thirst for these impossibly rare editions. Continue reading to see a gallery of hard hitting Air Jordan 5 pairs made exclusively for Jordan Brand athletes in the NBA and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the next installment of The Sample and PE Craze.
