Jordan‘s 30th anniversary festivities in Shanghai kicked off with a bang, highlighted the unveiling of the amazing Jordan House of Flight. The coda wasn’t shabby either, as Michael Jordan himself — along with Nike design legend Tinker Hatfield in tow — sat down with Ahmad Rashad for a free-flowing conversation. Making his first appearance in China after an 11-year absence, MJ reflected on the evolution of his game during his playing career, as well as the collaborative nature of his partnership with Tinker. And even as the hoops legend moved on to a discussion about the current state of basketball in China and the future of Jordan Brand, onlookers may have been preoccupied by the kicks on Michael’s feet. He sported a pair of the Air Jordan 1 “Cyber Monday,” offering an in-person preview of the highly anticipated holiday release. See more of the photo recap in the following pages.
