With the Nike Air Jordan 1 High turning 35 this year, Nike is bringing back the sneaker Michael Jordan wore before his first signature shoe: the Nike Air Ship. Contrary to popular belief, it was the Air Ship, not the Air Jordan 1, that was “banned” by the NBA for breaking league uniform code.

This pack includes special half-and-half packaging, as well as one pair each of the Air Ship and Nike Air Jordan 1.It was previously teased by friends of the brand, including Hiroshi Fujiwara and OG Air Jordan collector Dylan Ratner.
