Back in the 1996-97 NBA season, Karl Malone reigned supreme over His Airness for the Most Valuable Player trophy. It was a significant achievement for the Mail Man personally, though that wasn’t the trophy he was really after. Michael Jordan and the Bulls dispatched Malone and his Utah Jazz to clinch another NBA Championship. These are the same style of shoes that MJ wore during that campaign. The Jordan 12 Retro sorta looks like an old Japanese flag, thanks to the Rising Sun motif going on by the sides. This shoe also marks the era when the ‘Jordan Brand’ began. $197.
