Bringing everything around full circle, the Air Jordan 31's story is a celebration of the Air Jordan 1 and Jordan Brand's beginnings. The latest colorway to surface takes us back to the earliest point of the groundbreaking partnership — when Michael Jordan put pen to paper on his first Nike contract as a rookie.

Michael Jordan Original Nike Contract

Drawing its colors directly from the document, which is on display in the Michael Jordan Building on Nike's campus, the shoe sports a blend of black and white, with Wolf Grey accents throughout. As a direct nod to the contract, Jordan's signature graces the outsole.

The "Fine Print" Air Jordan 31 will release on Saturday, Sep. 17 for $185.
