When the Air Jordan 5 in this white/black-fire red colorway showed up in 1990, it didn’t have the “23” embroidery. And when it showed up in 2013, it didn’t have the “23” embroidery. The exception to that rule though was Michael Jordan, whose original pairs of this sneaker did indeed have that jumbo stitching on the backside. Shown here is one of his pairs that’s found its way online, complete with some signatures from the man himself. Stay with us after the break to see more on this piece of Air Jordan history and then bid on them from jordanvault on eBay.
