About the Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow 2018

The Air Jordan 1 is the sneaker that started it all, marking the beginning of the most iconic lineage of sneakers in history. In many ways, it's responsible for launching modern-day sneaker culture as a whole—and it almost didn't happen.

History of Air Jordan 1

As the story goes, the year was 1984, and Chicago Bulls' rookie Michael Jordan was a hot commodity for endorsement deals, with sneakers naturally being paramount.

Jordan had just come off a stellar college basketball season at the University of North Carolina. He wore Converse and was a personal fan of Adidas, so he took meetings with both companies, but they never reached a deal. It seems strange today, but at the time, Michael Jordan hated Nike—so much so that he refused to take a meeting with them.

He was persuaded by his mother, Deloris Jordan, to visit the Nike campus in Oregon and listen to their pitch. His plan was to go through the motions to appease his parents and agent but he ultimately left with a contract unlike any other.

Rather than walking in the shadows of established athletes like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird (which may have been the case had he signed elsewhere), Michael Jordan shone in the Nike limelight. He was paid more than any other athlete with a sneaker endorsement at the time. Nike made him the face of its growing presence in basketball, and gave him his own sneaker line—called Air Jordan.

Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow 2018

The Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow is a retro re-release of the original and iconic 1985 pair. It starts off with a black leather base and grey accents on the toe, heel, collar, and a Nike swoosh on the side. OG Nike branding is featured in grey on the tongue of the black-and-grey Jordans, while the Wings logo on the ankle collar is in black. The midsole on the Jordan 1 Retro High OG sneakers is white, a bright contrast against the otherwise dark colorway.

    Shadow 2.0

    These caught my attention from the start. Super clean colorway. Hit a 8.5 but too small. My buddy got my 8.5 and bought me the 9 as a trade. Love them. Really nice.
