A colorway that was initially introduced back in 1989, the silhouette is also correlated with one of MJ’s career defining moments, as he hit “The Shot” over Craig Ehlo, defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the first round of the 1989 Eastern Conference Playoffs.
Simply staying true to its iconic palette — black, cement grey, and fire red — the sneaker will bear a remastered nubuck upper with the distinctive cement grey detailing and fire red accents throughout. In addition, the classic Nike Air branding will be applied on the heels and insoles to cap off the OG vibe.
According to @DJFolk, this pair is slated to debut sometime in 2017, with the retail price suggested at $220.

One of my favorite colorways ever on the silhouette and clearly a crowd favorite. I can’t wait.
