Jordan Announces Air Jordan 1 & Air Jordan XXXI “Flight Guy”
As expected, Jordan Brand will be releasing the always-coveted “Royal” Air Jordan 1s on April 1. Here dubbed the “Flight Guy,” the pair is accompanied by a special Air Jordan XXI delivery featuring the same color scheme.
The dual drop acts as a nod to when famed sports photographer Chuck Kuhn stepped onto a remote Oregon airstrip to shoot a then rising basketball star, Michael Jordan, back in 1985. Instead of donning his team’s signature red and black colors, MJ decided to go with his personal favorite of royal blue and black. The kicks he wore on that day, the black/royal Jordan 1s, then went on to be the first Air Jordan 1 available for purchase. The portrait in turn became an iconic poster, dubbed the Flight Guy.
To commemorate this legendary moment, Jordan Brand is thus launching a special “Flight Guy” collection for Summer 2017. Standouts from the project, the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan XX1, launch globally on April 1.
