Most of you probably have never heard of The Nike Air Ship. This is the shoe Michael Jordan actually wore when he first got signed  to Nike his rookie year of 1984-85. It is also the actual shoe that was banned by the NBA in 1985, not the Nike Air Jordan 1. Although the 2 shoes do look very similar, they are not the same. And people usually mistake the Nike Air Jordan 1 being banned when it wasn’t. Another reason the Air Ship is unappreciated Nike doesn’t even recognize the shoe. The Nike Air Jordan 1 has gotten countless numbers of retro releases, but the Air Ship has never been re released. In my opinion, Nike has to re release the Nike Air Ship in order to properly educate people.
