Sneaker Me Dope: Rick Ross Rocking Air Jordan 1 Black/Red

Miami’s rapper Rick Ross was spotted with Atlanta’s rapper Gucci Mane, filming the visual to “Ring Ring”  Ft. Future. The track is off Rozay’s latest mixtape Rich Forever. Ross was rocking a pair of Air Jordan 1 Black/Red sneakers. This shoe was originally released in March of 1985, and retailed for $64.99. These sneakers were also banned because according to Jordan, “They didn’t have any white in them”, and he was even fined $5,000 each time he stepped on the court in them. Now these sneakers can sell between $1,500 and $2,000. Ross was also wearing black denim jeans, tee-shirt and a red and black jacket.
