Air Jordan 1

When the Air Jordan 1 arrived in '85, it was with rule-breaking bravado. The banned black-red colorway violated the league's uniform policy, generating a $5,000 fine from the NBA each time Michael Jordan wore them. And the legacy began. Jordan's rookie campaign in 1984-85 finished with His Airness averaging 28.2 points per game to earn All-Star and Rookie of the Year honors.
