On a cold, crisp morning in 1985, famed sports photographer Chuck Kuhn stepped onto a remote Oregon airstrip to shoot a rising basketball star — Michael Jordan. Rather than wear his team’s iconic Red and Black, Jordan chose his personal favorite colors: Royal Blue and Black. The shoe he wore that day, the Air Jordan 1 Black/Royal, was the first AJ 1 offered for purchase to the public. The portrait became an iconic poster, coined the Flight Guy — its image etched in street and sport style memory.
