Nike Jordan 1 Retro High A Star Is Born. This sneaker is a special edition colorway of the iconic model inspired by the first cover of Sports Illustrated that Michael Jordan appeared on as a member of the Chicago Bulls. After appearing on the SI cover in college, Jordan quickly made the cover as a Bulls rookie in December 1984 with the headline “A Star Is Born”. The magazine showed Jordan in action against the Milwaukee Bucks, and that image inspired this Jordan 1 colorway.
Borrowing the color blocking from the revered Jordan 1 “Chicago”, this selection opts for a black and white base. Moreover, it ushers in a striped pattern on its Swoosh meant to mimic the piping down the side of the ’84 Bucks’ uniforms. Other standout embellishments include “A Star Is Born” boldly printed on the inside of its detached ankle collar straps. Secondly the date that particular SI issue hit news stands, and flashes of red surrounding each of its branded elements. In a year that has seen the most AJ1 drops ever, this specific offering might be one of the most well thought out.
