An Inside Look at the Air Jordan 1 Low OG Ghost Green

The Air Jordan 1 is the sneaker that started it all, marking the beginning of the most iconic lineage of sneakers in history. In many ways, it's responsible for launching modern-day sneaker culture as a whole—and it almost didn't happen.

History of Air Jordan 1

As the story goes, the year was 1984, and Chicago Bulls' rookie Michael Jordan was a hot commodity for endorsement deals, with sneakers naturally being paramount.

Jordan had just come off a stellar college basketball season at the University of North Carolina. He wore Converse and was a personal fan of Adidas, so he took meetings with both companies, but they never reached a deal. It seems strange today, but at the time, Michael Jordan hated Nike—so much so that he refused to take a meeting with them.

He was persuaded by his mother, Deloris Jordan, to visit the Nike campus in Oregon and listen to their pitch. His plan was to go through the motions to appease his parents and agent but he ultimately left with a contract unlike any other.

Rather than walking in the shadows of established athletes like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird (which may have been the case had he signed elsewhere), Michael Jordan shone in the Nike limelight. He was paid more than any other athlete with a sneaker endorsement at the time. Nike made him the face of its growing presence in basketball, and gave him his own sneaker line—called Air Jordan.

Air Jordan 1 Low OG 'Ghost Green'

Inspired by Jordan’s first signature shoe, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG in "Ghost Green" is detailed with leather on both the mid-panels and the perforated toe. The retro-inspired Jordans have a two-tone color scheme of pale green and white. Highlighted features of the shoe such as the eyelets, forefoot, heel, collar, and classic Swoosh all have a light green accent. Adding to the Jordan original design, the Jordan OG Ghost Green showcases an embroidered Swoosh on the forefoot of the shoe. The iconic "Wings" logo sits comfortably on the grey heel tabs of the white, green, and grey Jordans. The finishing touches are the highly noticeable bold "Nike" slogan on the tongue of the shoe which features a checkerboard pattern.
