That may all be myth, though. There isn't any photo evidence of Jordan wearing that Jordan 1 sneaker in that colorway in an NBA game. Sleuths like Jordan collector Marvin Barias have deduced that Jordan was probably wearing the Air Ship, a non-signature Nike model, instead. While it is generally accepted now that the Air Ship was the real banned sneaker, Jordan has mostly stuck with its own version of the banned story for over 30 years.
