JORDAN AJ XXXII MID AND LOW ‘BRED’ – OCT. 18 AT 10 AM ET
On Oct. 18, 1984, Michael Jordan stepped onto the court in black and red AJ 1’s. The bold sneakers were deemed a violation of league policy, but MJ wore them anyway and Nike happily paid the $5,000 per game fine. It was a move that revolutionized the way we look at, and wear, basketball shoes. Jordan has now named Oct. 18 ‘MJ Day’ in honor of His Airness’ seismic impact in the world of hoops and culture. For the inaugural year, Jordan is dropping that famous black-and-red colorway in their latest signature model, the AJ XXXII’s. The new kid on the block pays homage to the OG, the next gen takes us back to where it all began. AJ XXXII Mid Men’s $184.99. AJ XXXII Mid Boys’ Grade School $139.99. AJXXXII Low Men’s $159.99.
