As the Jordan Series footwear collection continues to go down Michael Jordan’s memory lane, this latest revealed colorway makes a pit-stop at one of the most profound moments in Jordan’s history. While we all remember Jordan best from his Chicago Bulls days, it was his short-lived return to NBA basketball with the Washington Wizards that truly revealed his love for the game and his desire for competition.
This Jordan Series .05 is labeled with “Dear 2003” and features an orange/bronze and dark navy colorway, a combination that clearly nods to his time with the Wizards. Jordan would go on to play two full seasons and put up rather impressive numbers before hanging it up for good at the end of the 2002-2003 NBA season. It was during this time that Jordan fans saw the growth of the Jordan Brand retro footwear business as well as the unveiling of the Air Jordan 16, Jordan 17, and Jordan 18.
This new release is currently available overseas and should arrive on Nike.com stateside soon.
