Sunday Sole Star- Nike Air Jordan I

6- Nike Air Jordan I

The mid 1980s was a launching pad for so much of what we know today and footwear was no different. The skate boom was riding an amazing wave and synthetic surfaces were taking over our sports. The Air Jordan I was such a crossover shoe in that it’s upper provided support and padding required for the days skaters and an outsole which was AstroTurf friendly. An iconic shoe which reached so many demographics and that makes it today’s Sunday Sole Star.
