The Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘David Letterman’ is a special edition Air Jordan 1 silhouette that is inspired by Michael Jordan’s famous David Letterman guest appearance.
Coming fresh off his 63-point playoff performance against the Boston Celtics, Michael Jordan joined David Letterman for an exclusive interview. The highlight of the interview was when they began talking about the Air Jordan 1, which both David and Michael called them “ugly.”
Inspired by that specific detail of the interview, Jordan Brand will be debuting the AirJordan 1 Retro High OG “David Letterman” as part of their Summer 2016 lineup.
This Air Jordan 1 is dressed in a Light Crimson, Midnight Navy, University Blue, and White color scheme. The shoe features a full Light Crimson leather upper with Midnight Navy and University Blue accents, finished with a clean White midsole and insoles that read “On Air” as a nod to when Michael Jordan made his appearance on the Letterman show.
