Air Jordan 1 High Air
The history of the Air Jordan 1 High
On September 15, 1985, Nike dropped the Air Jordan 1 High. Michael Jordan, a rookie in the NBA at the time, wore them on court for the first time during a game against the New York Knicks. The sneaker caught fire after that, and Jordan was fined for wearing them (they broke an NBA league uniform policy). In their first year of release, Nike sold approximately 125,000 pairs of Air Jordans—which is impressive considering they were $65 each (that's about $150 in today's money).
The Chicago Bulls won the 1985–86 Championship season with a record of 67-15. MJ averaged 37 points per game that season and won his first ever regular season MVP award. He was also named Rookie of the Year. This was all while wearing Air Jordan 1s—the sneakers that started it all and inspired Nike to create an entire collection around His Airness.
The characteristics of the Air Jordan 1 High
Let's look at the Air Jordan 1 High.
This is a high-top sneaker with a silhouette reminiscent of the original 1985 Nike Air Jordan 1 shoe. It features a combination of leather, suede and textile uppers in blue, yellow and white tones. It has a white midsole and an icy blue outsole for traction, plus cushioning for better comfort. The price point is $160, and it's available in sizes 7-12.5 for men. There are also grade school sizes available (4-7), so your kids can match you! The shoe was released on March 6th 2021 at 10 AM EST and sold out in under 10 minutes—good thing it's still available at our store! It also comes in other colorways like black/red and olive/orange which have previously been released this year, along with new releases coming soon such as grey/green later this month (April 2021).
The Air Jordan 1 High collaborations
The iconic white, black and red Air Jordan 1 High OG “Air” was the first Air Jordan sneaker to be released in 1985. It was designed by Peter Moore, who had previously worked with Nike on the Air Force 1 and Dunk designs. In 1984 he was approached by Bruce Kilgore to design a new basketball shoe for Michael Jordan. Kilgore wanted a high-top version of the Nike Terminator model sneaker that he’d been designing for some time now, but Moore convinced him to start from scratch instead. He envisioned a shoe inspired by the women’s high heel market, with transparent panels and laces that could be adjusted for comfort. This idea appealed to Kilgore, so they started working together on what would eventually become the Jordan 1.
