Made specifically for MJ, this original Air Jordan XVII Low player exclusive has hit the market.
Worn by Michael Jordan in 2002 while he played for the Washington Wizards. This Air Jordan XVII Low comes in a white, varsity blue and metallic copper colorway, matching the teams uniform. Very similar to the 'University Blue' pair that was released except this pair features a different shade of blue. What makes them more unique is that MJ's personal pairs all featured the number '23' stitched on the back heels.
It's not every day that you come across one of Michael Jordan's personal pairs, let alone a deadstock one, still in the box. If you're interested in adding them to your collection, fobxguru has a pair listed on eBay. They come in MJ's personal size, 13.5 and are currently listed at $3,499. Good luck and happy bidding (or watching)!
