The Air Jordan 1 Sports Illustrated will release later this year as a tribute to Michael Jordan’s first Sports Illustrated cover appearance during his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls.
Prior to this, Jordan was also placed on the cover of Sports Illustrated two other times, however he was wearing his North Carolina and Team USA jersey.
This Air Jordan 1 matches the front cover of the Sports Illustrated issue. As you can see the base features Black and White while constructed with leather. Shades of Green are seen on the Nike Swoosh which is taken from the Milwaukee Bucks jersey. Finishing the look is Red for Jordan’s Chicago Bulls on the Wings logo and outlining the Nike Swoosh, on one side of the ankle collar is ‘A Star’ while the other features ‘Is Born’ and the date Dec. 10, 1984.
