Editor’s Notes: Jordan Brand is celebrating Michael Jordan’s biggest career achievements with the “Best Hand in the Game” pack. Here, we find the Air Jordan 1 done up in soft suede and leather, featuring Black Toe color blocking.
The “Blue Moon” colorway points to MJ’s 14 consecutive NBA All-Star appearances, welcoming a straight flush on the right insole, while the “Yellow Ochre” iteration then signifies his five MVP awards with a royal flush on the shoe’s right insole. Next, the “Track Red” rendition is a nod to Jordan’s six championships, as the sneaker boasts a six-of-a-kind hand on the right insole. The “Clay Green” Jordan 1 in turn represents all of Michael’s contributions to the game of basketball, including Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, multiple championships, and a Hall of Fame induction.
You can look forward to all four colorways of the Air Jordan 1 “Best Hand in the Game” capsule launching separately in different global regions on May 5.
