The silhouette that started it all – Nike’s Air Jordan 1 first landed on the feet of Michael Jordan in 1985 and garnered attention due to its rule-breaking red and black colour-blocking which violated the NBA uniform policy at the time. The story goes that the Jumpman was excessively fined every time he’d play in them; nevertheless, this did not halt the basketball icon in his stride to create a legendary career, and would only fuel the hunger for Air Jordans. Over 35 years on from its introduction and the silhouette is arguably the most sought-after high-top out there.
