The Air Jordan 1 designed by Peter Moore was undeniably a revolutionary basketball sneaker when it debuted back in 1985. Arguably, we would not be seeing the colorful kicks that make an appearance on the hardwood if it was not for the Air Jordan 1. Along with the Air Jordan 1, the “basketball with wings” logo became Michael Jordan’s signature branding, at least until the “Jumpman” logo was introduced later on. Over the years, Jordan Brand has dropped countless iterations and variations of the Air Jordan 1. The latest among these, which will likely join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, seem to be nearly tonal with a never-before-seen feature.
As mentioned, there are literally innumerable colorways of the Air Jordan 1, many of which are variations of the original design. Of course, the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” or “Bred” will always be recognized as the most iconic. Another equally popular colorway is the “Royal,” which featured the same color blocking but with Royal Blue in place of Red. Other highly coveted iterations of the Air Jordan 1 include the “Black Toe,” “Shadow Grey,” the Dave White collaboration, the “Black/Metallic Gold” and the “XQ” colorways from 2013, and plenty of others. A more recent popular release was the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 “UNC.”
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG iterations featured here are actually inspired by the collaborative OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan releases that have arrived so far, especially the kind of branding they featured. The tonal uppers of these six iterations are made up of canvas and leather, each dressed up in a single hue, which from the looks of it appear to be Black, Beige, Blue, Grey, Olive and Orange. All of them are also equipped with identical Sail-colored midsoles. Mostly notably though are the words that appear over the side panels, such as “Air,” “Nike,” “Quality,” “Swoosh,” and several others.
Although Jordan Brand has confirmed nothing so far, these colorways will likely be among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. Reportedly, each of these Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG iterations will retail at a price of $160 once they hit the shelves.
