Nike's Air Jordan Gets a Documentary on How It Changed The World! Here's The Trailer For UNBANNED: THE LEGEND OF AJ1
I remember when Nike released the Air Jordan show in the 80s. I was such a huge fan of Michael Jordan and I wanted a pair so bad! Of course, I never got a pair because my parents couldn't afford them. I used to go to the mall to look at the shoes and wish that I had a pair. I especially loved the color combo of red and black.
At the time, I was too young to realize how big of an impact these shoes were having on society. I just wanted to be a part of the Air Jordan club! These shoes helped lead the charge of a new cultural revolution. It bled into multiple aspects of pop culture like fashion, sports, music, and more.
Well, now there's a new documentary that's been made called Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1 and it dives into the story behind the shoe and it's impact on society. The movie features interviews with Michael Jordan, Michael B. Jordan, Spike Lee, Lena Waithe, Anthony Anderson, DJ Khaled, and more.
The doc was written and directed by Dexton Deboree and it will be released on July 13th. Did you have a pair of Air Jordan's when you were growing up!?
