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 shoe features black flyknit material on the upper, along with green heels with speckles of red, and red toes with speckles of green. It also features red, black, and green tri-colored tongue tags with gold Nike brandings. Additionally, you will also notice that the outsoles have the same tri-color pattern as well. Other features are black leathered Nike swooshes on each side of the shoes, wings logos, white midsoles, and BHM brandings located on the inside of the tongues.
