words // Brandon Richard

This year, the Jordan Brand will celebrate Black History Month with a three-pack of sneakers, representing the legendary Michael Jordan, brand ambassador Spike Lee (Mars Blackmon) and current marquee athlete Carmelo Anthony. MJ's shoe in the pack is the Air Jordan Retro 1 High, which we see in detail here.

The Air Jordan Retro 1 High BHM features a 3M reflective black upper with splatter print throughout. Blue works Swoosh branding on the side panels, while vibrant yellow pops off the Wings, inner lining and BHM-branded tongue tag. Grey takes over at the midsole, which sits atop a blue translucent rubber outsole. Each shoe is lined with custom MJ, Mars and Melo insoles.

We're still awaiting release details for the Jordan Brand's BHM pack,  but expect all three shoes to hit retail in the weeks ahead.
