Michael Jordan’s 1985 Rookie of the Year acceptance speech is the what inspires the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Rookie Of The Year. Featuring a gold harvest and black colorway as a nod to the brown shirt that MJ wore, the sneaker is also contrasted with white tumbled leather on the upper. Highlighting the sneaker is a detached layer on the ankle collar featuring MJ’s rookie stats and a hidden message by MJ himself that says, “This award is nice, but I just feel it is very important for each individual to go out and contribute to his team.”
