Jordans Daily: What can you tell us about the origin of this sample and why it was made?

Kris Arnold: Fortunately, I was able to communicate with Peter Moore, so I know that Nike was making shoes in MJ’s size for him to approve and wear. It is well-documented that MJ wore a pair of, what appeared to be, mostly black Air Ships in a preseason game in New York in mid-October 1984. Apparently, David Stern was at that game and was the one to ban the shoe. That ban affected Nike’s designs, and as far as I can tell, the only Air Jordan designs that Nike moved forward with, that were approved by the NBA for MJ to wear in games were the Chicago and the black toe. The wings logo shows up in early November, which is featured on my sample.
