Along with upcoming Air Jordan 1s inspired by Michael Jordan's Rookie of the Year season, there's said to be another style on the horizon which also takes on some nostalgic inspiration.
According to info from @pinoe77, @djfolk, and @psmirf, an Air Jordan 1 is on the way with colors taken from a 1984 Sports Illustrated cover from MJ's rookie year. Rather than the traditional-style make up seen on recent Jordan 1 High OG colorways, the style will reportedly use a striped green Swoosh and Wings logo atop a black and white upper.
An exact release date isn't available, but this pair will reportedly drop sometime this holiday season for $160.
