"The shoe will never get made again, so I look at it as I'm blessed to be able to throw money away like that," he said when discussing tracking down the final pair, the Doernbecher Jordan 5. "I'm just blessed to find a passion. I like shoes. I like Jordans, so, hey, it's all part of it." - Adam Jones
HOUSTON -- Adam Jones recently procured the final pieces of an extremely rare shoe collection. Just how exclusive is this footwear? Even with a multimillion-dollar salary and the perks that accompany fame at his disposal, it still took Baltimore's All-Star center fielder four years and a shoe-sleuthing crew of 10 people to complete the extraordinary and special collection: Ten pairs of limited edition Doernbecher Air Jordans made by Nike.
