It's been 20 years since the last NBA All Star Game in Orlando, so what better way to kick off the week of retro All Star sneaker sightings here on Sole Collector than the Greatest of All Time in one of the greatest All Star shoes of all time?  

In case you don't already know, that's the Air Jordan VII "Bordeaux" on the feet of Michael Jordan in this week's Kicks on Cards Card of the Week.  The 1992 All Star Game was the only time Michael ever wore this colorway of the Air Jordan VII on the court, making it one of the hardest shoes to find photos of on his feet.  Luckily, we have the fine folks of Upper Deck to thank for this awesome shot of MJ in the Bordeauxs on this All Star card. After the card, check out the video of MJ doing some damage in the Bordeauxs during the game and be sure to stay tuned to Sole Collector this week because there are plenty more historic All Star sneakers to come!
