About The Air Jordan 1

The Air Jordan 1 was designed by Peter Moore and was released in 1985. The release was tied to Michael Jordan’s rookie season in the NBA. The design of the Jordan 1 was rather simple and consistent with the other basketball shoes of the era. The Jordan 1 lacked the sophisticated technology that the Jordan Brand would be known for with later installments. Nike was dedicated to giving Michael Jordan his own shoe and brand to grow with. That commitment is clear when you view the shoe’s distinctive logo. Moore designed a wings symbol, a precursor to the Jumpman logo, that was placed on the upper ankle of the shoe.


The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Skyline” is said to be inspired by the legendary image of Michael Jordan dunking with the Chicago skyline behind him. That image was the origin of the Jumpman logo. The silhouette features a white leather upper. It has a color gradient that fades from pink on the forefront to purple at the heel. Again, this color scheme is referencing the photo that helped to define the legacy of the Jordan Brand.

It is the 1 that started it all! The Air Jordan 1 not only set up the path for Jordan Brand. It also helped to set up the path for sneaker culture as we know it today.
