The Game Plan by Champs Sports Presents “The Master” Jordan Collection

If there was ever a basketball player deserving of the “master” moniker, it was Michael Jordan. His statistical numbers dwarf his contemporaries and his career achievements read like something out of a movie. Six championships in six trips to the Finals? Six Finals MVPs? Seven straight scoring titles? And a sneaker legacy so large that it’s still going strong some 15 years after retirement? Who does that?

Jordan had the perfect career. (Well…at least if we’re not counting Washington.) And while there were a number of reasons for that, none of it would’ve happened had Jordan not mastered the fundamentals of basketball. Those skills acted as the foundation so that whenever he did use his incredible athleticism, he became unstoppable.

During his final years in the NBA, Nike and Jordan Brand released a poster advertising the Air Jordan XII, complete with Jordan dribbling a basketball in hues of white and black and small hits of gold. Written vertically down the side was “The Master.”

That poster actually inspired the latest retro release from Jordan, an Air Jordan XII complete with a tumbled black leather upper, gold lace eyelets along the ankle, and hits of white throughout. It’s a beautiful take on a classic shoe that was known throughout the years for being one of the best performing on-court Jordans to date.

Mike wore the Jordan XII during his fifth championship run in 1996-97, which included the famous “Flu Game” win over the Utah Jazz, one of the NBA’s most iconic moments.

No need to spend time here. If you haven’t made up your mind on whether to cop the “Master” Jordan XII or not, chances are you either aren’t that big of a Jordan fan after all or, more likely, you just haven’t seen them on feet. (They look amazing.) The Jordan 1 Flight 3 is a cheaper alternative for those looking to grab something but don’t have the cash flow for a true classic.

Black, gold, and white is an undefeated colorway. As warmer weather (hopefully) starts rolling in, you need some fresh looks to complement the footwear. Sporting iconic Jordan branding and timeless designs and graphics, these T-shirts, caps, and shorts are a good way to match the kicks without going overboard.
