Going out in serious style.

Dexter Fowler, member of the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs (yes Cubs fans! It's still real!), like any good guest, didn't show up to empty handed during his recent trip to The White House. In fact, he brought along a pretty great gift—a pair of one-of-one custom Air Jordans, which he handed Barack Obama during his last week in office. (Sorry to say this fact is also still real.)

The patent leather Jordan IVs are decked out in Barack Obama insignia. First, the lace locks (the little thingy between the laces on the first loop) are replaced by some official Obama logo hardware. Next, the presidential seal is located not only on the box, but on the tongue of the sneaker. Obama's signature is also lasered near the heel. All this considered (plus the fact that no one else could technically legally use these logos), these Jordans might very well be the rarest Air Jordans in America.
