Editor’s Notes: Jordan Brand is set to drop a a special rendition of Michael Jordan’s first-ever signature sneaker, the Air Jordan 1, this holiday season.
The sneaker commemorates his Airness’ first Sports Illustrated cover during his rookie season in 1984. The striped green Swoosh is colored to represent the Milwaukee Bucks jersey, the team MJ was playing against on the cover image of the SI issue.
The cover was titled “A Star is Born,” which is also what these kicks are colloquially referred to as.
