Raised in Chicago’s south suburbs, Dwyane Wade worshiped Michael Jordan and attracted suitors, starring at Richards High School as Jordan led the Bulls to their second “Three-Peat.” Wade has since won three NBA titles of his own, the second coming in 2011-12 as he wore and signed these Nike “Jordan Fly” size “15.5” shoes. The black leather accessories feature Jordan silhouette logos. The right shoe is signed in silver marker (“8” strength), while the left shoe is inscribed “looking forward to this yr. champ.” The items were obtained from a Washington Wizards game day employee and show single event use with moderate wear.
