Two eras meet with the release of the Air Jordan 17+ Retro “Bulls” this Sunday, May 29. When Michael Jordan returned to NBA action in 2001, he joined the Washington Wizards. The then 38-year old proved time and time again that he still had it in him. For his second comeback MJ wore the Air Jordan 17 wich featured a luxurious look inspired by Aston Martin sports cars and the improvisation of Jazz music.
Of course, at some point during his comeback Mike had to play versus the Chicago Bulls. The he won all of his 6 championships with. The franchise which is forever connected with his legacy. It was a very emotional return to the Windy City, that’s for sure. Many fans greeted him with “Welcome home” signs and the standing ovations seemed to last forever.
Jordan Brand decided to honor this moment by combining the sneakers MJ wore during his comeback as a Wizard with the colors of the Chicago Bulls. The black premium leather upper looks very crisp on the AJ17+. Red hits throughout the shoe make for that special pop and deliver the classic “Bred” style.
