Inspired by Michael Jordan's first ever Sports Illustrated cover as a member of the Chicago Bulls, and paying homage to his illustrious career, this December 2018 release is draped in history. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG A Star Is Born, named aptly after the Headline of that December 1984 edition of Sports illustrated takes it back, way back to where it all began for Michael Jordan, when his career was just starting, before the success, before the fame, and before the Jordan brand's inception. This kicks midfoot Swoosh boasts a gradient colour scheme meant to harken back to the retro Milwaukee Bucks uniforms that His Airness is masterfully evading on the cover on the way to two of his 32,392 career points. Other details include black and white panelling supported by Varsity Red embroidery around the aforementioned spot of Beaverton Branding as well as on its recognisable ball and wings logo emblazoned into the ankle collar. This kick is sure to light up the scene just as Michael Jordan lit up the NBA from the very beginning, and his continued relevance and success as a sporting icon is a testament to the man's undeniable star power and legendary status.
