Out of every sneaker designed for Michael Jordan, the Air Jordan 1 may be the most ubiquitous. Boasting a versatile shape and appeal for both on- and off-court styling, the sneaker has remained one of the most popular Jordan Brand silhouettes since its inception. Never has Michael Jordan put his own spin on the style, however, which changes with a pair of extremely limited charitable silhouettes debuting for charity.

Offered as part of a raffle benefitting the Charlotte Hornets Foundation, two monochrome Air Jordan 1s were designed by Jordan himself, offered in an exclusive edition of 300 total pairs. Offered in black or white, the premium shoes both sport white rubber midsoles, with tonal quilted uppers emphasizing the grain leather that also informs the Swoosh and ankle guard.

While the black sneaker is one shade, the white model offers contrasting black accents on the ankle and shaft to break-up the otherwise all-white shoe. An All-Star-shaped hangtag graces each shoe, with a honeycomb pattern and silhouetted player adding visual flair. Stylized branding on the tongue tag completes the exclusive sneaker.

Scope out the sneakers and place a bid on the Charlotte Hornets Foundation’s site before the bidding ends on May 23. Check out the promotional clips below.

Elsewhere, Travis Scott‘s highly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 received complete release information.
