Growing up, MJ was never one to back down from competition. Starting with backyard battles against his older brother Larry, His Airness constantly sought challenges and guidance that would help grow his game. In honor of that ambition, this colorway of the Jordan Series 01 pays homage to young Mike’s indomitable drive.
Dark tones of suede and leather nod to MJ’s “Black Cat” moniker, with hits of Summit White adding a neutral element. On the sole, “45/2” nods to the number 23, which was chosen by MJ to signify that if he could be half as great as Larry—who wore 45—he’d be alright.
Check out the official photos below, and look for this Jordan Series 01 to release on June 14th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $80 USD.
