This Air Jordan 1 is Inspired By 1985’s “Who Said Man Was Not Meant to Fly” TV Ad
It should come as no surprise that Jordan Brand has pulled another Air Jordan 1 sneaker inspired from its TVC archives, But more recently, the Brand has looked to the year that Mike actually wore the sneaker — 1985 — with releases like the Rookie of the Year and A Star is Born. This pair does both, honoring a commercial made for the Air Jordan 1, which featured MJ taking off from the free throw line with sounds of jet engines in the background, capped off with Mike’s voiceover stating “Who Said Man Was Not Meant To Fly”
Eery, powerful and as captivating now as it was back then, it came in at number 2 on our list of 20 Best Jordan Commercials Ever.
Originally reported to be a return of the OG Bred Air Jordan 1, it arrives in an all-new take on the tri-colors of the Windy City franchise.

Black throats, white tongues, and special graphic insoles complete the design.
