On 30 April 1985, Michael Jordan accepted the NBA's Rooke of the Year honors. Jordan Brand will be releasing a new colorway of the Air Jordan 1 that pays homage to Michael Jordan's outfit during his Rookie of the Year acceptance speech.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Rookie of the Year' is dressed in Gold Harvest and Black colour scheme. This colorway of the Air Jordan 1 pays homage to the Brown shirt that MJ wore during the award ceremony. For this Air Jordan 1, the Nike Swoosh can be found, in black, on top of the Sail underlays.
UPDATE: Jordan Brand officially unveils the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Rookie of the Year'!
The main highlight of this Air Jordan 1 would be the detached layer around the ankle collar, similar to the Off-White x Air Jordan 1s. On the inner side of the ankle collar displays MJ's stats during his rookie year and MJ's quote during his acceptance speech.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Rookie of the Year' will be released on 17 November at selected retailers. Tokyo-based retailer Atmos will be releasing these at an earlier date of 8 October during this year's atmoscon.
