Here's the thing about the original Nike Air Jordan 1. It isn't a technically advanced shoe now, and it really wasn't one even when it came out in 1985. But that drawback provides for one great advantage—it's durable as hell. With the exception of the ankle foam (which tends to get crunchy) and the accent color on the ankle (which tends to peel off), the Air Jordan 1 is a virtually indestructible shoe. Long after your original Air Revolutions and Air Jordan IVs (and even the retros) have turned to dust, a pair of original AJ 1s will still be going strong. That said, fine examples are still somewhat hard to come by, so expect these size 12s to fetch some decent coin.
