To mark the 25th anniversary of the 1991 NBA All-Star game, which took place in Michael Jordan’s hometown of North Carolina, Mitchell & Ness will be releasing his ‘Airnesses’ All-Star game jersey.
It was also the game when MJ debut the iconic Black/Infared Air Jordan 6s, a custom which he continued with each new Air Jordan sneaker (bar the AJ XIV) in each All-Star game he played, right up to the end of his career. In that particular game, Jordan banked 26-points and lead the East Coast Conference team to a 116-114 over their West Conference rivals. He followed this up by leading the Bulls to their first NBA Championship… and the rest, as they say, is history.
The jersey itself is all-white with a trim tricolour detail on the neck and arms, the front features the famous metallic-blue star logo with MJ’s famous number ’23’ on top and as well the back.
The '91 East Coast All-Star will be available on Friday January 15 through select Mitchell & Ness retailers.
