Shoes 8 months ago Share Tweet Pin Share After surfacing back in August, Jordan Brand’s “Sports Illustrated” take on the Air Jordan 1 now has official imagery and a confirmed release date. The sneaker — which is also known as “A Star Is Born” — references Michael Jordan‘s first ever appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated from December 1984. The sneaker’s colorway references this magazine cover, with a black and white leather upper complete with white, red and tonal green embroidered Swoosh branding. Other detailing — including the Jordan branding — come in red as a reference to Jordan’s Chicago Bulls uniform. Lastly, the sneaker is finished with the phrase “A Star Is Born” on the inside of its side lace flaps. Get an up-close look at the sneaker in the gallery above, and expect it to drop on December 27.
