Although he's been retired for years and out of the public spotlight, Michael Jordan still remains a major figure in the world of shoes. Every year, Nike still releases dozens of shoes under the Jordan label, with tons of different styles and shapes that fans of the shoe have come to know and love. While lots of models are nearly impossible to find, you can fairly easily track down a few authentic pairs in your area. In the following, you'll find out about some great places to get them.
To start, you can visit a big name shoe retailer such as Foot Locker, Foot Action or Champs Sports. While these stores won't stock some of the harder to find Jordan shoe models, they'll almost always have at least one pair in stock, and the shoes these big stores sell are guaranteed to be authentic. If you have access to a big city, there's a great chance that you can find an official Nike store. In these stores, there's normally a section devoted to basketball, where you should be able to find an array of Jordan styles much bigger than that in normal shoe stores. Larger towns will likely also have a high end boutique shoe store that carries some deadstock Jordan shoes. While these may cost much more than the pairs you can buy in a Foot Locker, they're also much rarer and considered by many to be much cooler. Due to the popularity of Jordan shoes, you run a high risk of buying ones that are counterfeit, especially if you do your Jordan shopping online. If you do choose to go that route, be especially circumspect on eBay, where you should only buy from sellers with many positive reviews, and avoid completing a purchase from any shoe site for which you cannot find lots of information about its reputation, or for which the site's pay system or setup appears sketchy or insecure.
