Air Jordan XXIII
On the Air Jordan XXIIIs Tinker teamed up with Mark Smith and pushed to create a shoe that you could put on a table without any logos and you would know exactly what it was. The level of uniqueness helped them achieve the feat with an intricate pattern stitched through the majority of the side as well as the left and the right kicks not mirroring each other for the first time in the lines’ history. They were also the first Jordan to fall under the "Considered" line due to their more environmentally friendly construction.
The Zoom Air featured XXIIIs were also a staple throughout the season for Chris Paul and other JB athletes and the athletes paid homage to No. 23 by rocking different versions in the All-Star Game. The Premier (Black/Varsity Red), ended up having one of the most hyped releases of all time, dropping at only 23 locations in the US with each store only receiving 23 pairs each. These had sneakerheads nationwide scrambling to get a pair. Many camped out for a whole week braving the December elements just for a chance of getting their hands on these. After the snow cleared, many ended up on eBay and sold for upwards of $1,000.
