Air Jordans (Organizations, Companies, and Products)

"This was Jack's idea. I don't even know how I got stuck with the damn thing. I had it in the guest house and it ate everything: the rug, the sofa, my Air Jordans."
"And he lived to tell the tale?"

Air Jordans are the high-top sneakers named after Michael "Air" Jordan, arguably the best basketball player of all time. First introduced by Nike in 1984, they've undergone several incarnations and are now marketed by Nike under the name "Jumpman23." The sneakers and related merchandise have earned hundreds of millions of dollars for both Nike and Michael Jordan. Air Jordans have always been some of the highest-price sneakers on the shelf, so the goat who ate Wallace's shoes must have expensive taste. Or maybe he's just a goat who eats whatever gets near his mouth. Veronica, unlike Wallace, sees the humor in the situation.
