THE FIRST MOVIE ABOUT A SHOE
AIR JORDAN GETS A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT IT (TRAILER BELOW)
Everyone knows about Air Jordan’s regardless of if they own a pair. Even if people don’t wear sneakers they still know what Air Jordan’s are. Now a full-fledged documentary dives into the impact Nike’s most iconic shoe has made since its release.
Dexton Deboree acted as producer and director for the film Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1, which reveals the circumstances of the shoe’s initial release and how it transitioned from the shoe worn by NBA legend Michael Jordan to a cornerstone in street fashion.
Michael Jordan himself is featured in an interview in the documentary along with well known sneakerheads Anthony Anderson and DJ Khaled. Michael B. Jordan and die-hard Knicks fan Spike Lee make appearances as well. Chicago-born star and creator of The Chi, Lena Waithe sits down with Deboree also.
Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1 premieres July 13th, on the website unbanthelegend.com
