Iconic Air Jordan VII sneakers worn by MJ in the 1992 season
Incredible Nike Air Jordan VII basketball sneakers personally worn by Chicago Bulls shooting guard Michael Jordan during a game in the 1992 regular season, size 13, white/black with Cardinal red, signed on the heel counter of the left sneaker in black felt tip. Codes on tongue tag read: “920112FT2” and "13001410100." Includes the original white laces. In fine condition, with expected moderate wear and scuffing from use.
Michael Jordan presented the Air Jordan VII basketball sneakers during the 1992 season to an NBA Trainer, who then gifted the shoes to the current Consignor.
Accompanied by an official shoe worksheet and a letter of opinion from MEARS Authentication, which states: "The Air Jordan VII originally released in 1992 and was once again designed by Tinker Hatfield. Unlike the previous four models, the VII did away with the visible Air unit in the heel and ‘Nike Air’ logo on the heel. They featured a Huarache-like neoprene inner bootie and colorful geometric detailing inspired by West African Tribal culture.”
The 1992 season, and its subsequent Olympic summer, was for Jordan perhaps his most successful. MJ’s sensational play during the 1991-1992 regular season resulted in All-NBA and All-Defensive First Team honors, his eighth All-Star selection, his sixth straight scoring title (30.1 ppg), and his third Most Valuable Player Award. When the playoffs concluded, the Bulls had become back-to-back champs and Jordan, again, was named the Finals MVP with a stat line of 35.8 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 6.5 apg, and 1.7 spg. His peerless play and leadership carried over into the historic Barcelona 1992 Summer Olympics, where the newly assembled ‘Dream Team’ steamrolled undefeated to a gold medal finish.
