With word of the Air Jordan 1 "Rare Air" set to release this year, the original pair has surfaced online.
A student at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is mutual friends with one of Michael Jordan's best friends, who owned a pair of MJ's original game-worn "Rare Air" Jordan 1.
Franco claims that the pair was worn during Michael's rookie season which dates back to 1984-85. While it's unknown which exact game Michael wore them in, the shoe was signed and gifted to him with inscriptions on the left medial collar reading:
"My Very Best - Michael Jordan."
It continues on the right medial side of the shoe reading:
"My very best - To brother DB - love always Michael Jordan #23."
