Jordan Brand has announced that the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Sports Illustrated (officially known as the “A Star Is Born”) remembers one of MJ’s first magazine covers (see below) as a professional. The shoe comes dressed in a White and Black leather upper offset by the Red detailing on the Wings logo, tongue, and outline of the Swoosh. The shoe’s most notable feature is the Swoosh branding done in a Green striped pattern said to represent the jerseys of the Milwaukee Bucks, which was the team Jordan was playing against while on the cover of this Sports Illustrated issue. The “A Star is Born” declaration made by its publishers is embossed on the inside of the detached collar flaps.
