Twenty five years after it’s release in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 is still rocked all over the world and stands the test of time, getting better with age. This model hasn’t been butchered as much as some the other AJ models, even getting a worthy update this year with the AJ1 Alpha which added modern sneaker technology such as a full zoom air sole (used in most modern basketball shoes now), new lightweight materials and added cushion in the ankle area to be made playable on the courts today.
This retro sticks to what’s true about the OG model though. Coming in a tonal Wolf Grey/Spice colourway, this make up nods towards the old school college dunk colourways of the 80’s. Though the colourway isn’t something you would associate with Mr 23 and his Bulls legacy, it still has that simplicity and vibe of those ‘good old days’.
The materials look nothing short of quality and going by the pics the shape looks pretty killer. These are definitely going to look dope with shorts in the summer and will easily make any winter outfit pop in the cold grey months of October onwards.
Available from Jordan Brand retailers and Size? now.
