With basketball fans around the world tuning to Michael Jordan‘s “The Last Dance” documentary every Sunday, perhaps one of the biggest questions among viewers is “What if MJ actually signed with adidas”?
Coming into the league, it was always Jordan’s mind to plan to sign with the Three Stripes as he simply preferred to play in their shoes from a performance point of view, and Nike was still an up-and-coming sportswear brand. But as the series has reflected, Jordan’s mom Deloris Jordan pushed him to take a meeting with the Swoosh and the rest is history.
But let’s presume that the six-time champion brought his skills to the German brand, it would be quite interesting to imagine what he would have rocked at the court in his hardwood days.
And being that the adidas Top Ten Hi was a silhouette of basketball popularity during the time, there’s a good chance you would’ve caught him in these during his early playing days in the 80s. Especially this makeup due to the nature of its high-profile construction and palette blended up between white bases and “Power Red” accents which would’ve perfectly complemented his Chicago Bulls threads.
