Jordan Brand is giving something back to one of it’s most loyal supporters, who is known for her longstanding relationship with Shoe Palace, by giving her her very own Air Jordan 1 sneaker.
Lovingly known as “SP Gina,” the school teacher has found a unique way to bond, teach and influence her students through sneakers.

And now, In honor of teacher appreciation week, Jordan Brand will be set to release a special edition Air Jordan 1 to celebrate the inspirational lady.

Debossed and stitched-on leather Wings logo arrive on the collar, and it sits atop a blacked-out midsole and red rubber outsole. Finishing off the design are special edition “SP Gina” branded insoles. The release will also be accompanied by co-branded merch.
