The Jordan Brand is commemorating Michael Jordan’s rookie season achievements with a special holiday season release. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Rookie Of The Year” will be releasing in a “golden harvest” colourway that's perfect for the fall season and will include details that honor the 1984-85 season, Jordan’s first in the NBA.
The release is inspired by Jordan’s 1985 Rookie of the Year (ROY) acceptance speech, which explains the tan colourway of the Air Jordan 1 that matches the brown shirt he wore that day. The sneaker also comes with a few hidden details under the ankle collar flaps featuring MJ’s rookie year stats and a quote by the man himself that says, “This award is nice, but I just feel it is very important for each individual to go out and contribute to his team.”
His Airness averaged 28.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game in the regular season on his way to landing a spot on the All-Rookie Team, All-NBA Second Team, as well as claiming the ROY award.
For most, Jordan is still the greatest to ever play the game, and his outstanding start to a legendary NBA career is celebrated through this special release.
The Good Life will release the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Rookie of the Year” in-store on a first come, first served basis at 10:00am on Saturday November 17th
