The Air Jordan 1 High’s Ultra Variation Has Debuted In Two Summer-Appropriate Colorways

In one form or another, the Air Jordan 1 has been making sneaker-related headlines as of lately. July 30th had marked the retail debut of a brand new Air Jordan 1 KO with quilted uppers in a “Pure Platinum” colorway, inspired by Nike’s Air Foamposite Pro “Pure Platinum” colorway. The arrival of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Banned” has already been confirmed and it was recently revealed that the original “Black Toe” iteration, which had received the retro treatment in 2013, will return again this year. Along with all of this, Jordan Brand is also set to debut the Ultra variations of the Air Jordan 1 High.

Air-Jordan-1-High-Ultra-2Nike had made history when the Air Jordan 1 was introduced and ever since, the first model of Michael Jordan’s signature sneaker line has been innovatively revamped quite a few times. This time around, it seems that the Air Jordan 1 has been modernized to quite an extent, and this latest variation rather fascinating and nothing like previous ones. Instead of traditional leather, Jordan Brand seems to have used a more breathable and flexible material for its uppers, which makes sense considering that summer is still underway.

Among other features of the Air Jordan 1 that seem to have been updated is its collar, which is now more extended, despite the fact that low-top sneakers tend to be more appropriate for summer months. However, what sets the Air Jordan 1 Retro Ultra High apart the most is an element that has apparently been borrowed from Nike’s Mercurial Superfly, which is an inner ankle bootie. Even the first two Black and White colorways of this Air Jordan 1 variation are making their retail debut at just the right time since they are quite aptly summer-themed. Many sneakerheads are likely eager to try on this variation and they will not have to wait since these two Air Jordan 1 Retro Ultra High colorways have just arrived at retailers on August 13th.
