These iconic, pre-Nike Jordan game-used shoes are a true piece of basketball history as they are the earliest career photo-matched Michael Jordan shoes in existence and they were worn on his journey to his first Team USA gold medal. Originating from the 1983 Team USA graduate assistant men's basketball coach, these shoes were worn by Jordan during two games that ultimately led to his first gold medal. The 1983 Pan American games marked MJ’s debut on the international stage and he left a lasting impression with his dominant performances. On the grand stage of international basketball, Jordan announced himself to the world as a force to be reckoned with. The U.S. basketball team embarked on a golden journey in Caracas, as they marched towards the gold medal. The 12-day period was nothing short of a basketball clinic put on by the Americans. At the forefront of this relentless pursuit of victory stood none other than the incomparable Michael Jordan, who led the team in scoring with 17.3 points per game and secured his first international gold medal in the process. The Converse All-Star white shoes with blue trim are a size “12 1-2” which is accurate according to examples from the era. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the Team USA men's graduate assistant coach, a MEARS LOA, a photo match LOA from RGU and an apparent photo match LOA from Resolution Photo Matching.
