For a generation of young men and women, the now ubiquitous Jumpman logo which adorns Michael Jordan’s signature shoe line represents the idea of having endless possibilities – whether a tangible hoop dream – or other pursuits which may seem at first as daunting as floating from the free throw line and dunking a basketball.While most of those same people will never come close to achieving what Jordan did both on and off the court, there’s still a shared kinship in the idea that being able bodied – with the use of all four limbs – is the prerequisite for dreaming big.After Michael Jordan retired for the final time in 2003, his shoes have Fitflop Sandals become less about the athleticism he displayed on court, and more so a lifestyle brand, with the Jumpman being akin to a skeleton key which allows wearers access to various social interactions where fashion on feels is almost as important as the content of one’s character.Ask any young person, and they’ll tell you that shoes can tell a story before the people wearing them are afforded the chance to tell their own.The genetic combination of muscular dystrophy and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome was supposed to kill Robert Mota before his 20th birthday.
