Inspired by the OG “Royal” colour scheme, the iconic colour blocking has been retained but the materials themselves have been switched out. Rather than the classic tumbled leather construction that we all know and love, this Air Jordan 1 has been draped in glossy patent leather for a wet look. While this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s no doubt that it adds another dimension to the legendary palette.
The signature winged basketball emblem is finely stamped onto the ankle, while a Nike Swoosh shoots across the lateral and medial side panels. Just like the original, the Air midsole is painted in a crisp all-white hue that adds a pop of contrast to the shoe, finalising the design.
