Air Jordan XVII
Mike was back...again, this time transitioning from the front office to a player for the Washington Wizards. The Jordan XVIIs were the first Jordan to retail at $200, granted it did come with a briefcase and interactive CD, but it hadn't been that long since $150 seemed sky-high. Funny though, we don't remember too many people complaining in line at Foot Locker. Another Jordan that drew inspiration from a car, Aston Martin to be exact. At this point you might take Jordan's love for whips serious.
Unfortunately for Jordan there weren't too many great moments in the Jordan XVII other than the "Lightning" Lows Mike rocked while missing an easy dunk in the All-Star Game. Michael Vick had a few top plays in the white and varsity red colorway while burning d-ends on the turf, again proving a new generation was ready for the takeover.
