On August 30th, 1990, MJ's summer tour of Europe took him to Barcelona for a local Spanish League opener. In classic MJ style, he approached the game with ultimate intensity, including switching teams at halftime, collecting 37 points and judging a slam dunk contest all in one showing. The latest Air Jordan V sports the colors of the jerseys he wore during the game, and a mosaic pattern inspired by Barcelona street art. As a finishing touch, the "Air Jordan" tongue tag is translated in Spanish.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.
