Everyone remembers their first pair of Jordan’s. Mine were a pair Air Jordan V’s. You couldn’t tell me nothing. Nothing at all. If I could still wear those bad boys, I would wear them today. To work even. Well, maybe not to work, but you see what I’m trying to convey here.
Dwyane Wade finally gets to rock his first pair of Air Jordan’s. Well, to be completely correct about this, he gets rock his first pair of Air Jordan’s that he’s getting paid for. But it’s all the same.
Dwyane Wade pleaded for years to join the Jordan Brand family, wanting to wear the shoe his idol made famous.
His persistence is being rewarded.
When Jordan Brand makes its long-awaited release of the Air Jordan 2010 in February to commemorate the popular line’s 25th anniversary, Wade will debut the shoe. Hand-picked for the role by Michael Jordan himself, the Miami Heat guard called it “a huge honor.”
“I was in awe, because I know what it means to not only be a part of Jordan Brand but really represent Michael on the court in the shoe he would wear,” Wade told The Associated Press. “Very excited, to say the least.”
At first glance, they don’t look like much. But this is Jordan. And these are Jordan’s. They’ll grow on me. Will I buy them? Probably not. Mainly because as a responsible adult, I’m not supposed to be spending $170 on a pair of shoes, right? Right?
I hate you society! And all your rules!
