The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lucky Green” releases on April 15 at shoepalace.com and at Shoe Palace retail locations. As with all the Jordan 1 releases, these should sell out quickly.
So many of the colorways and releases from Jordan Brand are tied to storytelling and highlights from Michael Jordan’s legendary career. Michael Jordan had arguably his greatest performance against the Boston Celtics on April 20, 1986. On that date, MJ scored 63 points in a Playoff Game on the home court of the Celtics. That 1986 Celtics team is one of the greatest NBA squads of all time. His scoring output still stands as the most points ever scored in a Playoff Game.
The Air Jordan 1 High “Lucky Green” was last made available in 2009. It was a part of the Defining Moments Pack. The silhouette features “Black Toe” color blocking and a white and black upper. The tongue features Nike Air branding in Lucky Green. The green is at the center of the shoe, with it being present on the laces and outsole.
History of 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.
