Where to cop the Sports Illustrated-inspired Air Jordan 1s.
One of the final Air Jordan releases of the year is a special edition Air Jordan 1 colorway, dubbed "A Star Is Born," that draws on inspiration from Michael Jordan's first Sports Illustrated cover during his rookie year.
The 1984 SI cover in question featured an airborne MJ putting up a shot in traffic as he is surrounded by several Bucks players along with the caption, "A Star Is Born."
Using that image as inspiration, the upcoming Air Jordan 1 features the familiar white, black and red color scheme as a nod to the Chicago Bulls uniforms, as well as a green-striped Nike Swoosh inspired by the detailing on the Bucks' uniforms. Additionally, the inside of the ankle collar reads, "A Star Is Born."
Jordan Brand officially unveiled the all-new 1s yesterday as part of their 2018 Men's Holiday Collection, which also includes a "Rookie Of The Year" Air Jordan 1 and a "Platinum Tint" Air Jordan 11, among others.
The Air Jordan 1 "A Star Is Born" will release today, December 27, at 10am ET. The kicks will retail for $160.
