When it comes to Jordan Brand, some colorways get passed over for not having the “MJ effect”, which is the tie of Jordan wearing them in an important game or making a memorable play that people will never forget. The ‘Shadow’ colorway that dons this next Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG release is one of the most coveted in the sneaker world. Depending on who you ask, some would say that this colorway on the Retro 1 is the best, but a strong argument will be made that the ‘Bred’ color scheme holds that title. While we are only four months into the year, Jordan Brand has been bringing the heat with their releases and this pair keeps the trend going.
Many Jordan heads are hype for this release and it’s only right that they are. This sneaker has only been released three times before and that was in ’85, ’09, and most recently in 2013. While a low-top and KO version have released also, you can’t beat the true OG version. People may wonder why these are dropping when they released only five years ago, but it may be hard to find a sneakerhead who thinks that these should stay in the vault. This shoe comes with a clean black leather upper with medium grey overlays on the toe, heel and Nike Swoosh logos. They also feature ‘Nike Air’ on the tongue, respectively. You won’t want to miss out on this release.
