The Nike “Air Jordan” is one of the most iconic designs in the history of both streetwear and basketball, and is a key part of the origin of the Air Jordan brand for Nike. Designed by Peter Moore, Michael Jordan wore Air Jordan 1s in 1984 and 1985.

The original Air Jordan 1s were so popular and successful that Nike continued to make new signature Air Jordan's each season. This tradition continued beyond Michael’s retirement, and Nike is currently on the Air Jordan 35. From the day it launched, Air Jordan's have always represented the pinnacle of sneaker design. The shoes are unmatched when it comes to quality, craftsmanship, materials, innovation, performance, and of course style.

In 2013, while on the “Legends of Summer” tour with Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake wore a series of exclusive Air Jordan's that many hoped would be given a wide release. However, they only were given out exclusively to friends and family of the artists, making them extremely sought after by collectors.

The “Legends of Summer” collection consisted of three different variations of the Air Jordan 1 that each boasted a variety of premium materials, including patent leather and snakeskin. This particular pair is an all University Red leather and suede with sparkling glitter.
