Michael Jordan’s signature makes anything into instant memorabilia, but out of all his signatures, one is more important than the others. The signature that appears on his first Nike contract is the reason that we even have any Jordan’s to rock, and his latest pair immortalizes this moment.

The Air Jordan 31 Fine Print borrows its colorway from the contract Jordan signed during his rookie year, and while black and white may sound boring, this pair is anything but. For this pair, the upper is given a gradient feel that goes even further, switching from knit on the toe to leather on the heel. His signature can be spotted beneath the clear rubber outsole, and it ties the whole look together.

You’ll be able to sign the sales slip for the Air Jordan 31 Fine Print on September 17 at select Nike retailers.
