At 6-foot and 8-inches, Atlanta Hawks‘ Dominique Wilkins gained prominence during the 1980s for his signature “Windmill Dunk,” a feat so raw to the opposing team and so entertaining to the Hawks’ fans that they bestowed the nickname the “Human Highlight Film” to him. Having such command of the game, Wilkins also gained a rival unlike any other, Michael Jordan.
In celebration of this legendary rivalry between two of NBA‘s greatest players, as well as the 25th anniversary of the 1988 Chicago All-Star Weekend, one which Jordan edged out Wilkins during the Slam Dunk Contest with his now trademarked “Jumpman” pose, Jordan Brand is set to launch the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Human Highlight Reel.” Renamed to avoid any potential trademark issues, the shoe features a colorways familiar to Atlanta Hawks fans. Also dubbed as the “Atlanta Hawks” edition, you’ll find hints of film reel pattern embossed onto the black leather upper accentuates the overall design.
Retails for $140 USD, Air Jordan 1 Retro “Highlight Reel” will also be available in kid’s size for $98 USD. Both scheduled for release this coming Saturday, September 7th, through select Jordan Brand retailers, including NOHBLE in Passaic, NJ, and Olympic Town locations in Harlem and the Bronx, NYC.
