The Air Jordan 1 History
The Air Jordan 1 was first introduced way back in 1984-1985, created by Peter Moore. Michael Jordan has become the Rookie Of The Year, and played in the All-Star game. It was the first basketball shoe wore in the NBA that featured multiple colors. MJ first disliked the sneaker, but started to grew on him overtime. During that time, the famous sneaker was banned by Commissioner of the NBA, David Stern. MJ wasn’t allowed to wear the shoes on the court, but MJ refused to play without them anyways. He was fined $2,000 for every time he worn the sneakers on the court. However, Nike has covered the fines, and also gave the Air Jordan 1 the “The Shoe Banned By The NBA” label. There were over 23 different color variations released, and the Air Jordan 1 also came with two sets of shoe laces that matched the colorway on the sneakers. The shoe was originally retailed at $65.00.
Features Of The Shoe
This sneaker consist of an overall black colorway that features leather material, along with the swooshes on each side of the shoe. It also features touches of gold located on the swooshes, Nike Air logos, and the wing logos. Additionally, you will notice the white midsole, and the clear icy translucent outsoles on the bottom of the shoe. Finally, there are Los Angeles maps on the insoles of the shoes.
