A classic that's sure to turn heads!
The silhouette features a white mesh lining coupled with black patent leather, all resting on a white midsole coupled with a translucent icy outsole. This retro will have the number "45" embroidered on the heels, instead of the traditional "23", the number worn by Michael Jordan when he returned to the courts in 1995, after his early retirement.
With the words "I'm Back", his Airness shook the entire basketball world. In addition to his striking comeback, he wore UFO sneakers for the time. A white upper while the rest of the team wore black? Check. A fine for breaking league rules? Check. Patent leather on a basketball shoe? Check.
Considered a grail for many, this colorway was originally released in 1995, then reissued in 2000, 2006 (Defining Moments Pack) and 2011.
For this reissue, the brand wanted to be as faithful as possible to the original, using the same patent leather cut, the Nike Air details on the insole, the OG box and of course the #45 on the heel.
