Editor’s Notes: Jordan Brand commemorates Michael Jordan’s rookie season accomplishments with a special holiday-season release. The Air Jordan 1 “Rookie of the Year” is done up in a nice tan (or “golden harvest”), white, and black leather colorway with details that commemorate the 1984-85 season, Jordan’s first in the NBA.
His Airness averaged 28.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game in the regular season on his way to landing a spot on the All-Rookie Team, All-NBA Second Team, and claiming the Rookie of the Year award.
For many, Jordan is still the greatest to ever play the game, and his high-flying start to a legendary NBA career is celebrated through this special release, which drops on November 17.
