3/29 Midnight Release: Air Jordan 1 "Opening Day"
This iteration of the AJ1 celebrates Michael's wish to pursue the dream of his late father, who had always envisioned him as a major league baseball player. Fortunately for us, his success from the basketball court didn't translate over to the baseball field. Eventually Michael got his mind right and went back to the NBA to 3-peat with the Bulls again.
Although we all had to endure a year of the league without MJ (where he probably would have won another title), Jordan brand now has another reason to release an AJ1, which is just fine by us.
This AJ1 features jersey cloth pinstripe paneling to contrast with the original material of leather. It also has a clear plastic swoosh and baseball inspired stitching on the toe panel and above the swoosh. The "BB" on the heel stands for the team he played for, the Birmingham Barons, and the 3 and 51 equal the number of homeruns and RBI's he had during his pro career.
