It’s been more than 30 years since the debut of the Air Jordan I.

“The Air Jordan I was the first sneaker that really pushed the limits on what was acceptable,” Michael Jordan said. “It’s like being a young kid, when his parents say he can’t do something but he wants to do it. I felt like I wanted to be different.”

The limited-edition Air Jordan I Retro High golf shoe is certainly that, defying the status quo much like its basketball predecessor. The shoe does have a few notable differences: extra padding to provide additional comfort and support around the ankle, Jumpman logo on the tongue, Nike Free-inspired outsole with soft spikes and a fully waterproof upper.

“MJ introduced his provocative style of play to professional basketball in 1984, and the Air Jordan I shocked the world at the same time,” said Gentry Humphrey, VP Nike Golf footwear. “Interestingly, Michael started to take up the game of golf in 1984, the exact same year Nike started to develop the Air Jordan I.”

The Air Jordan I golf shoe will be available in two colorways (white/black/varsity red and white/metallic silver) beginning Feb. 10 at nike.com and select retailers.
