Throwback to glory: The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG
When Michael Jordan set foot on the court in 1985 wearing the Air Jordan 1s, the history of both basketball and sneakers were changed forever. With a bold look and high standard for performance, these sneakers immediately attracted the attention of fans across the globe. Since then, the Air Jordan line has represented the epitome of basketball footwear, and now, Nike is re-launching the shoe that started the phenomenon.
With this retro edition, you'll instantly be transported back in time to that pivotal second Playoffs game when MJ, who was merely a rookie, scored more than 60 points against the Celtics. The timeless colorway combines a mostly jet black leather upper with bright varsity red detailing on the heel, lace-strap and toebox and classic white Jordan 1 colorblocking. The hightop build and tongue-tag Air branding makes these kicks really feel like a throwback. Naturally, you'll need a coordinating New Era Chicago Bulls snapback in the same palette, which is a JJ exclusive.
