Michael Jordan‘s crying meme is etched in internet history, and now it’s part of sneaker history, too.

As part of an art project by Sherman Winfield & Andrew Weiss, the two replaced the iconic Jumpman on a pair of Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs” with an embroidered Jordan Crying patch.

ESPN reports the artists don’t plan on selling the one-of-one sneakers and would rather just keep them in their personal collection. So, while you can’t run your fingers over Jordan’s tears during his 2009 Basketball Hall of Fame induction, the fact that these sneakers exist should keep you content.

Though Jordan cried in a moment of celebration that cemented his legendary status, the meme has come to be plastered on the face of anyone having a bad day.

To make things even more custom, a teary-eyed Jordan also replaced the Jumpman on the shoe’s insoles. Somewhere in Oregon, Jordan Brand is crying over not coming up with this idea first.
