The Air Jordan 1 "Letterman" is another one of those retro styles that takes a fleeting moment from Michael Jordan's life and creates a sneaker from it.

The shoe references the time Jordan appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in the late 1980s showing off his then-new Air Jordan line. Its colors match the jacket Jordan wore, while the insole makes a clever "On Air" pun.

The sneaker stays true to the era it references by using "Nike Air" branding on its tongue.

This Air Jordan 1 will release on April 30.
