Here’s a metaphorical look at what the NBA wanted to do to the Air Jordan 1 in 1984. This new Air Jordan Alpha 1 is completely blacked out with a metallic silver ‘Wings’ logo and icey translucent outsole. Extending the metaphor, the fines from Commissioner Stern’s office only served to shine a brighter spotlight on the now infamous shoe, kinda like how the reflective 3M ‘overlay’ sections on these joints will stand out in the street. Convoluted analogies aside, this is an immortal design done in a no-nonsense colorway plus modern tech elements for a shoe as true to the game as you could possibly be. These are available now at FinishLine or you can grab yours today on eBay.
Color: Black/Black-Metallic Silver
