Legend has it that when the original Air Jordan debuted in 1985, the predominantly red and black design was banned. A hefty fine was assessed each time he touched the field due to league policy. Subsequent iterations added a league-approved white color palette to the instantly iconic silhouette. It is not often that a legend appears and 25 years after its relaunch, its legacy remains intact. The Air Jordan I returns in iconic fashion, sporting a classic Chicago-themed colourway with an original Nike Air badge and Wings logo that cemented the franchise's 30-year reign.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He stepped onto the court in 1985 in the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking the rules of the league and the will of his opponents while capturing the imagination of fans around the world.
