Essential Viewing
I think most of us know why, aesthetically, we love the Air Jordan 1, but this is the only movie that goes in-depth as to why it meant so much to us as children. And why, to this very day, we still wear the sneaker. It goes beyond style. Way beyond cool. It speaks to something more ethereal. More transcendent. This film captures it. A must see from a anthropological standpoint. And, if you like sneakers, this will justify why.

Legends Tell All
Missed the screening in New York so had to watch on Amazon. Film did not disappoint and stayed true to its narrative. Everyone interviewed from Nike execs, to cultural taste makers had valuable input to this story and I’d recommend it to any sneaker or pop culture enthusiast.
