Exclusive Air Jordan 23s Given To Jordan Brand Schools

The latest Nikes that have just been released may cause many to look at them in envy even though they are new, they will not be available for public sale, at least not right now.

According to Complex, the sneaker giant has gifted athletes at several schools that are sponsored by Nike with exclusive Air Jordan 23s that match the schools’ color schemes. The schools that received the latest sneakers are Howard University, Georgetown University, the University of North Carolina, the University of Oklahoma, and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Each school’s Air Jordan 23s are not only matched with the school’s colors, but they all also feature the drawing of the team’s mascot and the school’s logo. At the present moment, only the athletes and staff members will be wearing them with no indication from Nike that the shoes will, sometime in the future, be available for sale to the general public.

The original Air Jordan 23 was released a little over 15 years ago in 2008.

And while we’re on the subject of Air Jordans, it was recently reported that a set of sneakers that were worn by the man that the sneakers were named after, Micheal Jordan, was sold for a record $8 million at a recent auction presented by Sotheby’s. The collection consisted of the six Nike Air Jordans that Jordan wore in the games that clinched the championships that Jordan and the Chicago Bulls captured.

The six sneakers were dubbed the “Dynasty Collection” and included a pair that was played in for the last games of the 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, and 1998 NBA finals. Jordan only played in six and was undefeated in the NBA Finals.

The Air Jordans were sold to Sotheby’s by a seller who originally purchased the collection from Tim Hallam, who was a public relations director for the Bulls when Jordan was playing. Jordan supposedly gave Hallam the shoes.

All of the sneakers, which were either a size 13 or size 13.5, were also signed by Jordan.
