The Nike Air Ship is a significant basketball shoe that was released in 1984, a year before the iconic Nike Air Jordan 1. Often mistaken for the Air Jordan 1 due to its similar appearance, the Air Ship played a crucial role in the early success of Michael Jordan’s career and the eventual rise of the Air Jordan line. The Nike Air Ship holds historical significance as the shoe that Michael Jordan wore during his early NBA games when he joined the Chicago Bulls in 1984. A pair worn by the NBA superstar in his fifth game in his rookie season for the Chicago Bulls on 1 November 1984, has recently sold for a record-breaking 1.42m USD. The Air Ship is widely recognized as the sneaker that sparked the NBA’s banning of the Air Jordan 1 due to its colour-way not adhering to the league’s uniform policy at the time. The league issued a letter to Nike stating that the Air Ship and Air Jordan 1 violated the uniform guidelines, leading to the now-famous “Banned” marketing campaign by Nike.
Shoes are worn as there are signs on outsole and upper white leather panels. Glue on midsole has dried and yellowed due to age. Red paint is fading on heel collar panels. Overall, sneakers are still in very good condition considering age.
