When Michael Jordan first appeared on Late Night With David Letterman, it was more to promote his eye-catching first signature, the Air Jordan 1, than it was him going on television as you know, the greatest basketball player to ever live. In 1985 he was still just a rookie, but one with incredible hang time and a then-controversial sneaker that was slated to change the way athletes were marketed for generations to come. In honor of the occasion and Mike’s bold tracksuit ensemble, Jordan Brand will be releasing the Air Jordan 1 “David Letterman” on April 30th for $160. The Light Crimson upper is accented by patent leather Midnight Navy Swoosh branding to nod at his bold fashion for the occasion. If you manage to watch the interview, you’ll notice that MJ calls his Air Jordan 1 “Bred” ugly and that he didn’t have anything to do with creating that particular colorway. Check out the latest detailed image set of the upcoming Jordan 1 Letterman and grab this pair right now on eBay.
