The Air Jordan 1 is a classic, undeniably so. The stories of Michael Jordan getting fined $5,000 a game for wearing the Jordan 1 back in 1985 is part of what makes them legendary. Back then, the colorways of the first Air Jordans were too much for NBA officials to handle. In today’s basketball sneaker world, crazy colorways are a dime a dozen, but when it comes to recreating the classic Air Jordan 1, simple seems to shine.
The “Dark Powder Blue” colorway of this new Air Jordan 1 94 was originally made famous by the Air Jordan 10, which originally releases in 1994. With colors that matched MJ’s alma mater, this colorway made its way onto the feet of UNC Tarheels like future NBA legend, Jerry Stackhouse. Tying two of Jordan’s popular models through colors and design cues of the Jordan 10 on the silhouette of the Jordan 1, brings the memories of two generations of fans together in one sneaker, the Air Jordan 1 94.
