The impact and cultural influence of the original Air Jordan is an amazing accomplishment. What's even more impressive is the fact that Peter Moore's design still holds up today as a fashion icon. It may not have been groundbreaking from a technology standpoint, but up until MJ hit the league, there had never been a need to step up the performance of a shoe quite like he demanded. The most notorious version of the original Air Jordan was the Black/Red colorway. MJ actually drew fines from the NBA with each wearing for its lack of white in the color-scheme. Its performance may be forgettable, but its design and legacy most certainly are not. No other pair of kicks has influenced and inspired a sport, market and lifestyle more than the original Air Jordan. -Zac, Sole Collector Magazine
