As part of its Holiday 2020 retro collection, Jordan Brand has readied the Air Jordan 1 in a fresh “Lucky Green” makeup. A women’s-exclusive style, the “Lucky Green” is inspired by a rookie Michael Jordan‘s 63-point game against the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Playoffs, a performance so scintillating it caused Celtics Hall of Fame forward Larry Bird to say “It’s just God disguised as Michael Jordan” post-game.

Uppers are mostly centered around the white and green color scheme of the Celtics, though Jordan’s Chicago Bulls get a moment in the spotlight as well thanks to bright pops of red. Quarters, collars and toeboxes take on a sail hue, with mudguards, eyestays, collar flaps and heel pieces presenting the eponymous “Lucky Green” tone. Bulls red appears in striped style on the heel as well as the tongue badge and collar’s ball-and-wings logo. Tongues and Swooshes are black, the latter diverging from the upper’s tumbled leather build to instead show a shiny patent leather.

As amazing as it was when Jordan hung 63 on Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish and the rest of the Celtics he was still rising to the height of his powers — so if you look closely, the eyestays are not fully stitched on, much in the same way MJ’s game wasn’t complete in ‘86. There’s also a special hardwood print on the insoles for a nod to the Boston Garden’s wood floor and a green leather hangtag. Sail midsoles and black outsoles round off the look.

The Air Jordan 1 “Lucky Green” will release via Nike SNKRS on October 14. The MSRP is set at $170 USD. Although it is indeed a women’s style, it’ll be available in an extended size run that allows larger-footed men to purchase a pair as well.
