Part of this year’s Yin Yang Package, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 555088-102 is one half of this black and white ensemble. If you have seen a Yin-Yang symbol, you are probably aware of what it signifies: balance and harmony. Showing two sides of the color extremes, the ‘102 model features the Black/White-Black colorway.
Air Jordan 1 High Premium Essentials
Size Run: Mens
Style Code: 555088-102
Release Date:August 6, 2016
With the “Black” taking the first slot in the name, it is a good bet that the ‘102 is covered mainly by white with just splashes of black as accents. The Swoosh design at the side is done in stark black together with the Wings logo on the same face of the kicks. The soles, tongue, and laces are all done in white, making those black logos stand out more with just one look.
From the back, you can see a plain approach with just an arching line of black extending to the Swoosh on the side. No Jumpman model here which is a little disappointing but in keeping with the silhouette. Clean and streamlined, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 102 looks good from any angle with no ‘shouting’ designs that could be seen as tacky.
The use of these two basic colors is not just in keeping with the Yin and Yang design – it also provides a very classic take on the Air Jordan 1 Retro. With these very classic colors, you can be sure that either half of the Yin and Yang design will remain popular even after years in the market.
Of course, there are those who might see this model as a boring one. If you are an Air Jordan fan, however, you would be able to fully appreciate the model. If you are also going to buy just one Air Jordan sneakers this year, any of the Yin Yang design would be an ideal choice because they’re meant to last. Sad News though: chances are they will only be sold in Asia so if you know anyone there, better make a reservation. Here’s to hoping the kicks would also be released in the US.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 102 will sell for $160 and with a release date of August 6 this year. Although part of a package, you should not have a problem buying just one. Of course, if you do not like this colorway then you can check out other Jordan release dates 2016 or stay in tune with Sneaker News to find out other models from Jordan.
