It’s unquestionable that Michael Jordan has had a long, diverse, and successful career. But as with anything worth it’s salt, the success came with its many ups and downs. This is a man who he himself said, “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” The Air Jordan I Wings are a tribute to his hard work and his inner confidence. As a numbered, limited edition run having debuted three days ago on May 17th in select retailers, we’re pretty sure they’ve all been scooped up by now. Photos via Nike, Inc..
