Jordan brand commemorates the flight guy

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

On a cold, crisp morning in 1985, famed sports photographer Chuck Kuhn stepped onto a remote Oregon airstrip to shoot a rising basketball star -- Michael Jordan. Rather than wear his team’s iconic red and black, Jordan chose his personal favorite colors: royal blue and black. The shoe he wore that day, the #airjordan I black/royal, was the first AJ I offered for purchase to the public. The portrait became an iconic poster, coined the Flight Guy — its image etched in street and #sport style memory.
To commemorate this iconic moment, #jordanbrand launches the Flight Guy Collection this summer. Highlighted by the AJ I and AJ XXXI, the collection connects an iconic moment to modern innovation while paying tribute to the way legends surprise us… often out of the blue.
