Like every Air Jordan, the V took Mike to new heights. Including a 69 point performance against Cleveland. It was also one of the first times we got to see The "Player Exclusive" on anybody. You see, Mike's versions had a #23 stitched on the sides. Only about 100 each are rumored to exist in the white/black and black/silver colorways. See, even back in 1990 Nike was ahead of its time.

This Jordan also holds a special place in my heart as it's the "one that started it all" for my addiction to shoes. I remember going school shopping, and my mother asking me what I wanted for school shoes. I pointed to the original white/black/fire-reds. This was a shot in the dark since the only thing I rocked before J's was slip on coasters from Mervyns. After begging and pleading with Moms, she cracked and I soon had my first pair of J's. To this day, it remains the only Jordan I wore so far into the ground that I had no choice but to throw them away.

With them upcoming releases of new colorways as well as older OG models, I'm happy that they're coming out once again. Here's what I have so far:

Niketalkin' since December 15th, 1999!
