If you picked up SLAM Presents JORDANS Vol. 1 (Jordans I-VI), then you already know Puneet Singh, aka Sole Supreme. Or at least, you know his sneakers—we shot his incredible and comprehensive collection of OG Air Jordan shoes for the magazine. A few weeks after our special issue hit newsstands (if you don’t have it yet, you can order it here), we caught up with Puneet again at our offices in Manhattan to talk about his contribution to the magazine, some of his best Air Jordan memories, and more.
And, rather than lug his fragile collection of OGs into the City, he brought some rare PEs we’d never seen before, including custom Jordans built for former Kings PG Mike Bibby, baseball star Andruw Jones and even a golf shoe that MJ himself once played a round in. In the video above, we also discuss the legacy, technical changes and spirit of the first six models in the Air Jordan line. Enjoy!—Abe Schwadron
