Michael Jordan is not only the best basketball player of all time, he also has the best signature shoe line of all time. Throughout his career, Jordan had many memorable moments in his iconic sneakers. These historic performances helped cement MJ’s legacy as one of the best to ever play the game. As Jordan’s fame grew, so did his Air Jordan sneaker line.
Jordan now has 29 signature shoes under his belt. In preparation for his 30th signature shoe, which is almost assuredly on its way, we decided to take a look back at Michael Jordan’s best games in each of his signature shoes. For Part 1 of this series we focused on the Air Jordan 1-10.

Best Game: 1986 Playoffs – Round 1, Game 2 vs. Boston Celtics
Michael Jordan’s best performance in the Air Jordan 1, the shoe that started it all, came against the 1985-86 Celtics. During the 1986 playoffs, Jordan scored a record 63 points in a double-overtime loss to Larry Bird and the Celtics. The record still stands as the most points scored in a single playoff game. After the game, Bird was quoted saying “I think it’s just God disguised as Michael Jordan.” Many people consider this Larry Bird-lead team to be one of the best teams ever, making MJ’s historic performance even more impressive.
