Where to Buy the Air Jordan 1 “A Star is Born”
Superstar in the making.
Jordan Brand will be releasing an upcoming Air Jordan 1 Sports Illustrated colorway as a nod to Michael Jordan’s first Sports Illustrated cover as a Bull, which went to print during his rookie season.
He was of course on there two times beforehand, one repping UNC, the other Team USA.
Essentially it’s just a white and black Air Jordan 1, but the detailing on the Swoosh mimics the side panels of the old Milwaukee Bucks jerseys, which was the team MJ was dominating on his cover shot (below).
The leather looks to be cut from the same cow as the Satin Shattered Backboards, which have half the sneaker community drooling.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Sports Illustrated” is due to hit stores on December 27th for $160.
More details will be sure to follow, including a detailed list of where you can get your hands on a pair!
