This shirt is the epitome of cool 80s fashion. Nike apparel took a step off the sports fields and onto the streets in the 1980s becoming an essential for all hip kids. The ability to transition from solely a sportswear brand to one of the most ubiquitous labels in clothing is a feat Nike is unique in accomplishing. This was partially due to the partnership Nike organized between Michael Jordan and Spike Lee in the mid 80s. Lee's character of Mars Blockmon, from She's Gotta Have It (1986), a hyper New York Knicks super fan obsessed with Air Jordans, was used frequently in Nike ads. This was the first time Nike represented their customers as not only active athletes but regular fans as well.
The left sleeve of this shirt features the Katakana symbols for Nike. Japanese imagery was very popular in the United States in the 80s because of the economic success Japan was enjoying at the time. Also featured on the front of this shirt is the iconic Nike swoosh logo.
This shirt is deadstock, unworn, with tags.
This shirt says medium on the tag but fits more like a modern women's small.
