-“Brief history of the iconic shoe and MJ’s NBA season wearing them”
Back during MJ’s 95-96 NBA season, MJ told Nike designer Tinker Hartfield he wanted to bring a “formal look” to the court . Mike wanted a shoe classy enough you could wear to a wedding. What came from that conversation was one of the most popular Air Jordan designs to be released. The shoe featured Patent leather for the first time on an athletic shoe, and a ‘secret weapon’ carbon-fibre plate and polymer- coated upper that wouldn’t stretch or lose shape through his record 72 win season and a forth NBA title. During that season, MJ became the second player ever to be crowned MVP for the season, the All-Star Game, and the Finals in a single season.
