Michael Jordan stunned the sports world in 1993 when he announced he was walking away from the NBA in the prime of his career. For nearly two years Bulls fans thought they had lost their star player for good, but a two-word press release in 1995 changed everything: 'I'm back.'
Jordan Brand are commemorating the 25th anniversary of this momentous announcement with a special edition Air Jordan 10. The make-up features a clean black and white exterior, representative of Jordan's interim stint in minor league baseball, and a black and red interior, representative of his true calling with the Bulls. 'I'm Back' and the date '03.18.1995' – the day the press release was issued – are embroidered on the left and right heel pulls respectively.
The Air Jordan 10 'I'm Back' will release on March 18 through Nike SNKRS and select Jordan Brand stockists.
