AJ1 "A Star Is Born" to release in late December.
Among the many Air Jordan 1s scheduled to release in the coming months is a special edition 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" is reportedly slated to launch on December 27 for the retail price of $160.
