One of the biggest sneaker moments of the Chicago season was when Scottie Pippen stepped on the court with a pair of Jordan 10. The goal was to get Michael Jordan back on the court after an early retirement during the 1994-95 season. Pippen wore the Air Jordan 10 to entice Michael Jackson back on the court. Today, the Hall of Famer and Orange Comet, the Web3 design firm, has created an NFT collection, including physical and digital sneakers (“Metawear”). The Pippen line will be launched exclusively on OpenSea on December 20, 2022 and will be a limited edition of 1,000.
