The end of an era. Michael Jordan, who obviously knew before the rest of us did, wore an unprecedented three models in the same season, starting in the XII and ending in the Ferrari-inspired XIV, which wasn't set to release for months. Sneaker blogs, had they existed, would have wet themselves. This was when signature sneakers were in full flower, and virtually every All-Star level player had one. Like Jordan's own, however, that time was coming to a close.
