Before Air Jordans, there was the Air Ship. The original banned shoe that carried the auspicious rookie through his first few months in the league. Realized with a dual-tone premium leather upper, the stark white leather is broken up by hits of university gold along the Swoosh, heel tab, and laces. Retro Nike detailing is printed on the heel, while a stitched hangtag rests on the padded fabric tongue. Underfoot we find an Air unit encased in a React foam midsole for unrivaled shock absorption while a gold rubber outsole completes the look.
