This is the shoe. The one MJ wore during his break-out 1988 season, when he earned his first league MVP and took flight from the free-throw line. The one that made "one to rock, one to stock" a thing. The first one you tried to keep clean. The last one on the list article you read about the 50 Greatest Sneakers of All Time, and the other, and the other, and the other. It's back. This time, in honor of MJ's birthday and the 30-year anniversary of its debut, it keeps the Nike Air branding to reach true OG form.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.
