As so beautifully-captured in the recent “The Last Dance” documentary, Michael Jordan’s performances on the hardwood were ones of miraculous nature. Whether it be his posterizing dunks, his crowd-silencing buzzer beaters, or his nifty crossovers, #23 set a new precedent for basketball greatness, and this month, his Jumpman family is crafting a new Air Jordan 1 High colorway inspired by his jaw-dropping 63-point game against the Celtics in 1986.
Immortalizing this throwback moment against one of MJ’s at-the-time biggest rivals, Jordan Brand forms this particular installment with the “Lucky Green” theme which is primarily noticeable through the uppers that alternate between Boston’s team colors of white backdrops and titular-shaded overlays. Other details of the colorway include that of the subtly-placed his of red dispersed to the ball-and-wings insignias, tongue branding, and heels, as well as the parquet-patterned insoles that directly call out the floor design of the arena now known as TD Garden. Check out a closer look below, and note that these will be dropping via Nike.com and select retailers on October 14th in women’s and kid’s sizes.
Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, the Nike Air FOG Raid Friends and Family colorway underwent a surprise drop today.
