While a no-cameras-allowed tour of the Nike Innovation Kitchen, Nike Sports Research Lab and Jordan Brand Design Space may have been the most eye-opening experience of the day for the eight Future Sole Finalists and their families, the display lobby of the Michael Jordan Building still featured some amazing artifacts to drool over.

Original pairs of each Air Jordan model that Michael sported on-court, along with several original documents, movie props and game-worn pairs left several of the aspiring designers in complete awe.

Check out our inside look at the lobby of the Michael Jordan Building below.
