In October of 2014, Michael Jordan took over the Charlotte Hornets Twitter account for a day and showed off an unbelievable lineup of Hornets-themed Air Jordan exclusives. Now, more than a year later, we're getting a better look at the rare sneakers.

Shared on Instagram by Jordan's brother-in-law and SoleFly owner Carlos Prieto, this range sees Air Jordans II through XIII made over in white-based colorways with hits of Hornets purple and teal. The exclusive kicks are on display in Michael Jordan's personal suite at the Time Warner Cable Arena, which means this will likely be as close as any of us ever get to them.

Anything can happen, but as of now, it doesn't look like there are any plans to put these "Hornets" Retros into production. We'll let you know if anything changes, but for the time being, enjoy the images below.
