Jordan 1 Retro Barons

The Air Jordan 1 Retro Barons celebrates the Birmingham Barons, the minor league team Michael Jordan played for after he retired from the NBA. Released in a pack alongside the Air Jordan 9 Retro Birmingham Barons and excellent Jordan Brand apparel remixed for a baseball vibe, this AJ1 flaunts a predominantly white upper that is accented with grey and black -- the team colors featured on the Birmingham Barons uniforms. Notable details on this Air Jordan 1 Retro include the pinstriped inner lining and reflective laces. While this isn't the first Air Jordan to pay homage to Jordan's time with the Barons (Jordan Brand did so in 2008 with the "Home and Away" pack), it does carry the story of Michael Jordan's chase to fulfill a wish of his late father: seeing MJ play baseball. The Air Jordan 1 was designed by Peter Moore and originally released in 1985. It featured a solid rubber cupsole with an Air unit embedded in the heel for cushioning and some of the best traction of all time. Interestingly, the original retail price for the Air Jordan 1 in 1985 was only $65 USD -- adjusted for inflation, that is approximately $140 in today's money. To celebrate the times with Michael Jordan off the hardwood, the Air Jordan 1 Retro Barons is your best bet.
