David Letterman is known as one of the greatest late night talk show host the world has ever seen. Letterman has been on late night since 1982 and retired in 2015. One of the highs of Letterman’s career was his interview with the Michael Jordan in 1986. Jordan had just scored 63 points the night before against the great Boston Celtics and appeared on the show the next day. What stood out the most was what Jordan wore during the interview. The young Jordan wore a bright red jump suit with a blue tracing.
Besides his bright colors, the second major key of the interview was Jordan discussing his new Air Jordan 1 with Lettterman. In honor of this great interview, Nike is releasing a new Air Jordan 1 colorway. The colorway resembles what Jordan wore during the interview featuring a light crimson upper with navy blue inner lining and laces. The most amazing aspect of the shoe is featured on the insole with the words “on air” and a microphone. This colorway is perfect for the spring season and can be a great addition to your collection. Check out the images and the classic interview below and be sure to grab your pair this weekend on April 30 th , for the price tag of 160$.
