Behind This Rare Air Jordan 1 Made For An Injured Michael Jordan

Air Jordan 1 Made For An Injured Michael Jordan

Back in 1986, the great Michael Jordan tirelessly worked himself back from a broken foot he suffered just a few months before. He helped his Chicago Bulls make a playoff push, and once there, put on one of his legendary post season performances, pouring in 63 points against the Boston Celtics.

Of course, MJ did this with the help of Nike, who created a modified version of the Air Jordan 1, which donned an ankle strap to keep his once-broken foot stable during games. It’s unknown how many pairs of his sneaker were made for MJ, but getting your hands on them is nearly impossible.

Heritage Auctions recently sold a pair of the ultra rare Jordans for $55,000, but before that, in an episode of Sole Collector’s “One of One”, we get the details about the game-worn sneakers.
