Trainer Of The Week | Nike Air Jordan 1 OG Atlanta Hawks
We’ve teamed up with online store Wellgosh to provide you with their current favourite “Trainer Of The Week” to feature on our blog and in our weekly newsletter. There are no other rules other than we have to feature a new style each week and give us a little description of why it’s their “Trainer Of The Week.” This week is the: Nike Air Jordan 1 OG “Atlanta Hawks”
Topping our chart this week is the Nike Air Jordan 1 OG “Atlanta Hawks”. First released in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 is now commonly recognised as one of the most iconic silhouettes in Nike’s back catalogue of tricks. Although Tinker Hatfield is the name most associated with the design of the Air Jordan line, it was Peter Moore who kick started the relationship between brand, fan and sport-star with the design of the Air Jordan 1. Having seen retro releases in 1994 and throughout the naughties, 2013 has seen the revival of this silhouette in some of it’s original colour ways. Earlier this year saw it released in the Boston Celtics team colours which was a highly sought after kick, and we expect this Atlanta Hawks inspired colour up to be just as popular! The Jordan Brand has a fanatical/cultish following, a subculture within the “sneakerhead ” scene and is testament to Michael Jordan’s influence and input to the sport.
