Air Jordan 1 “Black History Month”
Derek Gaines: “The Air Jordan 1 is such a comfortable shoe, because it’s so simple and it’s really neat. It also makes any pair of jeans you wear pop. Especially if you wear the tapered jeans, and you gut them and let the tongue hang. It’s just a cool, laid back sneaker for any occasion. This sneaker really transcends things for me. You can wear it anywhere, whether on stage or on the court.”
