Jordan Brand’s “Sports Illustrated” take on the Air Jordan 1 to form a sneaker known as “A Star Is Born”, which references Michael Jordan‘s first ever appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated from December 1984.
The sneaker’s colorway references this magazine cover, with a black and white leather upper complete with white, red and tonal green embroidered Swoosh branding.
Other detailing — including the Jordan branding — come in red as a reference to Jordan’s Chicago Bulls uniform. Lastly, the sneaker is finished with the phrase “A Star Is Born” on the inside of its side lace flaps. The kicks are expected to drop on December 27.
