The black and red Jordan 1. What can I say. The start of a huge following. A legend.
The Air Jordan experiment. Nike gave a rookie a shoe deal and started the Jordan bad boy persona.
Michael Jordan was fined $5000 every game he wore these, and nike happily paid the fine. Banned. It made waves across the country. People wanted to be like Mike.
An original pair of the jordan 1 in this color goes for thousands.
This weekend the Royal Jordan 1 released again.
A classic in its own right this take on the classic black and red color blocking. I among many love this colorway just as much. Happy birthday MJ. You truly are the best of all time.
