As earlier reported, Jordan Brand has dug into its classic commercial archive to inform a new pair of Air Jordan 1s. Dubbed the ‘Man Was Not Meant to Fly’, these Jays reference 29 seconds of retro glory from 1985, where Michael Jordan is pictured taking off – jet sounds included – to perform his signature dunk.
Donning a familiar Chicago Bulls scheme, the sneaker features white on the tongues, sides, toe box, and midsole, while black hits the overlays. Bold red trimming, laces, and rubber outsole deliver a strong contrast, as ‘Who Said Man Was Not Meant to Fly’ comes printed on the insoles.
You can expect these to fly onto shelves on Black Friday – November 29 – at Nike and other select Jumpman retailers.
