The man who started the Jordan Brand legacy just strengthened the foundation for future generations by donating an OG sample pair of the Air Jordan 1 to the Jordan Brand archive. What makes this donation particularly special is that it came from Michael’s personal collection, one that is believed to be thousands deep in OG colorways and never-before-seen PEs and special editions made just for him. The Air Jordan 1 has been a hot topic on Sneaker News lately, with the ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1 hitting Nike Factory Stores and the discovery of the OG Air Jordan 1 ‘Strap’ that Michael wore during the Playoffs against the Celtics, but here’s a look at its original, untouched, un-banned form straight from the hands of MJ himself. What else do you think Michael’s got in his sneaker closet? Let us know what you think.
