Michael Jordan Thinks His Work With Sneakers Will Leave A Larger Legacy Than His On Court Work

Michael Jordan knows there’s something bigger than himself — his shoes.

Air Jordan sneakers are selling better than ever even though he played his last game in the NBA more than a decade ago.

“I can’t explain it and no one can explain it,’’ Jordan told USA TODAY Sports. “And if anybody could explain it or duplicate it, they would have done it by now.’’

Various versions of the original 1985 Nike Air Jordan are listed on eBay for up to $7,500, not including shipping. But Jordan said he’s struck most when he sees kids too young to have watched him play basketball wearing Air Jordans.

“That’s amazing,’’ he said. “To me, it’s much bigger than Michael Jordan. It’s going to outlive me in terms of what I did for the game of basketball. It’s going to be something that’s going to last for a while.’’
