An Animated History Of The Air Jordan

We envy Michael Jordan.

Not content with being one of the greatest players to ever bounce a basketball, capable of superhuman feats of "flight" and emerging unscathed from the trainwreck that was Space Jam, his own training shoe has been a style icon for 31 years.

You'd think he'd share out the talent.

In tribute to the man's famed shoe, Bleacher Report and animator Ryan Fuller have created A History of Flight - a slick trip through the "hall of fame" that is Nike's Air Jordan range.

If you're a long-time collector or a casual admirer, one of the models in this brilliant short is bound to rekindle some trainer nostalgia.
