Not long ago, Watson was spotted wearing a pair of shoes whose model was unrecognizable. Turns out, the pair was not on sale. They were an exclusive pair he took from Michael Jordan himself! When questioned, he said, “I know MJ pretty well and we wear the same size so I get a lot of his old shoes.”
