These days, $64.99 won’t get you anything from a Jordan Brand catalog. Twenty-five years ago, that amount of cash got you a new pair of the Air Jordan 1. These days, the Air Jordan 1 gets re-released in a ton of colorways – maybe too much for its own good – but in 1985, when the Air Jordan 1 first released, there were nineteen different colorways, one of which was this White and Metallic Green colorway you see here. It might look a bit familiar to you, as a similar version was released in 2008 as the Air Jordan 1 ‘Do The Right Thing’, but the colorway actually dates back to before that Spike Lee joint was ever made. Sneakers are one of the most difficult items to preserve and this OG pair you see here surely has seen better days, as the metallic green leather has dried up and cracked, but these are still a vintage gem. Someone’s definitely out there willing to pony up the right amount of cash for these hard-to-find Air Jordan artifacts. If you’ve never known about this colorway, check out the detailed shots after the jump and check out the auction from sole_supreme on eBay.
