The AJ 1 is a piece of basketball and sneaker history. The timeless design is still popular today decades after the original debuted, so make sure you add this historic shoe to your rotation.

Protective midsole that houses an encapsulated Air-Sole® unit that work together for added impact protection. Solid rubber outsole with deep flex grooves and a basketball-specific circular traction pattern to offer increased traction. Mid.
