Air Jordan 17 / Air Jordan XVII Sneakers

With everyone believing that MJ would definitely not play another NBA game again, a surprising event happened when he returned in the game on the 2001-02 season. Michael Jordan’s come back was motivated by the September 11, 2001 attacks, thus he intended to donate his salary to the victims. Jiving with his come back, the jazz-themed Air Jordan 17 was released in 2002 as MJ was in tune for his final return and his 30,000th career point.

The Air Jordan 17 featured Tuned Air heel stabilizer and a full-length shank plate as it comes in a metal briefcase with a CD-ROM. As a nod to MJ’s recent retirement, the sole’s design was based on a golf course.

Looking at the shoe’s first release, a White upper was teamed-up with a unique Blue midsole, Silver plate on the heel with embossed Jumpman and “Jordan” label on each end, clear lace stopper and Black removable midfoor cover.

Did this shoe help MJ finish the game? Unfortunately, he met an injury during the season ending up with a torn cartilage in his right knee after only 60 games, the fewest he had played in a regular season. As for his shoe, it may have left an impact to many since a number of productions followed the initial piece.

All original colorways were made available for the public in most Black and White base in minimal color combos. The metal briefcase was never replaced with an ordinary shoe box, which makes this model worth for a collection.
