Following the Nigel Sylvester edition, as well as the Spike Lee “He Got Game” tribute sneakers, Nike brings back the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG to tell a new story from Jordan‘s rookie days. The colorway pays homage to the peanut butter brown outfit worn by MJ during the Rookie of the Year acceptance speech on April 30, 1985. Alongside the buttery golden leather, this iteration of the shoe has detached collar flaps similar to the AJ1 from Virgil Abloh‘s “The Ten” pack. On the inside of the flaps lists his stats, as well as a Jordan quote from the speech. The colorway will arrive at retailers on November 17, and will be available in sizes for men and women. Check out a clip from the acceptance speech below.
