The first pair of Nike Air basketball shoes I ever owned were a pair of white/natural Air Ships. I'm pretty sure I got them because they were $35, but it was a bonus that they were the first Nike shoes Michael Jordan wore as a Chicago Bull (he even wore the same colorway on occasion). Later, I tracked down this pair (and a pair of navy on white) on eBay. They sit on my desk today as a reminder of where it all started.
