Michael Jordan is known for throwing down free throw line throwdowns to win dunk contests, but his farthest in-game slam occurred in this Phoenix Suns game.
On this play, Mike read a passing lane and easily stole a pass. With nobody around him, MJ chose to up the difficulty on his bucket. With a step inside the free throw line, Michael took off from distance. The tongue-wagging Chicago Bull floated his way into an easy right-handed slam.
The sneakers that Michael laced up for this moment was the Air Jordan 6. This features a stylish lace lock that helps prevent the laces from coming loose. A visible Air Max unit is used in the heel for impact protection. Neoprene was added to the lower portion of the tongue to make the shoe lighter and provide a closer fit. The unique upper part of the tongue features large holes and combine with the heel tab to make it easier to slip on the shoes.
