When it comes to basketball, there is no one greater than Michael Jordan. From his beginnings in North Carolina to an NBA career with over a fistful of rings, Jordan’s legacy will be forever cemented. That legacy lives on through his sneaker line, which often celebrates his athletic accolades. Today we get a look at the latest silhouette to honor his illustrious career, the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Rookie Season.” The sneaker is detailed with statistics from MJ’s first professional NBA season and has a crisp, clean colorway.
The mid-cut design is adorned in Chicago hues of red and white. The upper is predominantly white, while red details adorn the ankles and profile Swooshes. Leather panels drape the rest of the upper, while the forefoot features a transparent TPU overlay that includes the player’s signature.
The rear features the same material with Michael’s draft figures, which include his position, pick stats, date of birth, height, weight, and team selection to the Chicago Bulls. A Wings logo sits at the collars, and the tongues feature a red Jumpman logo. The elaborate insoles finish things off, boasting Jordan’s 1985 Rookie of the Year stats throughout.
