Also known as the Air Jordan 1 “Celtics”, this Retro Edition honors the great rivalry between the Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics. What’s more, it also highlights the now legendary 1986 game when Michael Jordan scored a NBA Playoff record of 63 points against Larry Bird and company, prompting Bird to later said “I think it’s just God disguised as Michael Jordan.” In a new colorway of Clover/Black/White/Gold, Jordan Brand‘s take on Celtics team colors, the design also features a tonal “parquet” applique on the Clover-colored overlays, paying homage to the old Boston Garden’s parquet wooden floor. Since it was originally known as “Nike Air Jordan 1”, brandings include an old “Air Jordan” wings emblem near the heel and the “Nike Air” logo on the tongue tag. Finally, portion of the insole as well as the outsole and Nike Swoosh are covered in gold, a nod to the old Celtic lore.
Packaged in Nike shoe box derived from the original 1985 design, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Clover” will be available at select Jordan Brand retailers, including all House of Hoops by Foot Locker locations and Foot Locker online store, this Saturday, April 6th.
