Designed by Bruce Kilgore, the Air Ship were the first shoes worn by Michael Jordan in Nba, and moreover the base from which the famous Air Jordan series was born in 1985, which continues today. Previously, in May 2020, the Air Jordan 1 worn by Michael Jordan in 1985 were sold for 615 thousand dollars. It was the famous model at the time banned by the NBA because it violated the colour code in force at the time and it is no coincidence that it went down in history, commonly, among fans and lovers of sports memorabilia, such as the “Banned”.
