This Air Jordan 1 Sports Illustrated colorway pays homage to Michael Jordan’s first Sports Illustrated cover during his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls – which was published on December 10th, 1984.
This Air Jordan 1 features a White and Black leather upper paired with Red detailing on the Wings logo, tongue, and outlining the Swoosh logo. Highlighting the shoe is a striped pattern in Green tones on the Swoosh logo as a nod to the Milwaukee Bucks old jerseys, which was the team MJ was playing against on his first Sports Illustrated cover called, A Star Is Born.
Another interesting feature on the shoe is the detached layer around the customary ankle collar that reads “A Star” on one side and “Is Born” on the other. Below “Is Born” is the date Dec. 10, 1984.
