Jordan Brand will be releasing an upcoming Air Jordan 1 Rookie of the Year that’s inspired by what Michael Jordan wore during his Rookie of the Year acceptance speech.
Since the beginning of time, the Jordan 1 has always been one of Jumpman’s most iconic silhouettes, and the Jordan 1 High OG Rookie of the Year Gold perfectly embodies everything that makes the sneaker so legendary. Simple yet striking compared to other Jordan 1 colourways, this shoe takes some of Jordan Brand’s classic features and combines them with a clean and contemporary design.
Nicknamed ‘Rookie of the Year’, this Jordan 1 is inspired by the iconic golden brown shirt that Michael Jordan wore during his ‘Rookie of the Year’ press conference on April 30th, 1985. Adorned with statistics from his legendary ROY campaign, other highlights include a bright red Nike Air tongue tag, black laces, Swoosh, and outsole.
Look for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Rookie of the Year” to release on November 17th at select Jordan Brand retailers and StockX. The retail price tag is set at $160 USD.
