The tongue... The black pinstriped Bulls uniform... The SHOES.  You'd be hard-pressed to find a better photo of Michael Jordan than this.  A while back we brought to you the Beckett cover with Penny Hardaway in the Air Up, but this cover of every 90's kid's favorite magazine is even better.  Here we see Michael in the crispiest, iciest, dare I say most beautiful Air Jordan XI Concords you could ever hope to see.  That shoe is so bright and shiny you can even see it's reflection on the court. 

While the basketball card prices recorded within this magazine have all decreased greatly over time, the value of an original pair of the shoes on MJ's feet will continue going higher and higher.  Most of us will only dream of owning an OG pair of Concords, but many of us will be satisfied with grabbing a pair of the retro release tomorrow, December 23rd.  Good luck getting your pair!
