UPDATE: If you haven't decided to cop yet, we've got new photos of the Air Jordan 1 'Late Show' to help you make up your mind. The shoe will be dropping on April 30, and will be available on Nike SNKRS.
Guests on the Late Show with David Letterman in the 90s typically donned lounge suits for the occasion, but that just ain't MJ. Maybe it's because choosing those kinds of threads isn't his strong suit, or maybe it's because Nike paid him a lot, or maybe the man is just a born swag lord. Point is, though, His Airness did wear some crazy ass bright red nuclear waste clean-up scrubs/B-Ball training warm-up ensemble over a blue polo shirt when he made his late night television debut, and we loved it. Jordan Brand must have dug it too, because they're paying tribute to the moment with this new Air Jordan 1. Exquisitely transposing the sheeny tracksuit onto a shoe, red leather dominates the upper with the polo T-shirt tongue poking out through the middle.
The Air Jordan 1 High 'Late Show' arrives on April 30 at Jordan retailers, including Sneaker Politics.
