Many refer to Labor Day Weekend as the official end to the summer despite how hot it may still be around the nation at backyard BBQs. Whatever the case may be for your local area, trust that Jordan Brand is looking to finish Summer Sixteen on a strong note with the release of the one that started it all – the Air Jordan 1 in the iconic Black/Red colorway.
Rewind three decades, the colorway was too much to stomach for then NBA Commissioner David Stern and fined Michael Jordan $5,000 per game for wearing the Black/Red Air Jordan 1s – a bill that Nike happily picked up and even used in a marketing campaign.
Sneaker-info leaker aficionado Dino Hatfield of the Baltimore Sneaker Show shared this scan of upcoming Jordan release dates.
