When shoe lovers were introduced to the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Bred” earlier this year, there were missed reactions from fans around the world. Last month, news of a new colorway expected to drop surfaced. And now, an array of official renders of this much anticipated Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal” are available for you to take a look at.
The Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal” will be an update of the original 1985 silhouette. This shoe retains its predecessors’ look, although the materials, just like in the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Bred” are now new. Older versions of the sneaker came in leather. The sneaker features Nike’s iconic one-piece lightweight upper material. However, there are still hints of the traditional leather, although they have been restricted to a minimum. You can spot these on the Swoosh and Wings logos. The sneaker’s tongue and collar also feature high end leather. The upper is creatively created in black and royal blue colorway, reminiscent of the original 1985 design. The sneaker’s sole comes in an attractive white and blue color way, while the laces are black.
Like the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Bred” version, this sneaker comes with the same metallic gold tag to commemorate the shoe’s 1985 classic design. The tooling of the shoe also looks unchanged from the older versions. Like previous iterations of the sneaker, the high quality material and creative design of the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal” are meant to maximize the shoe’s comfort and durability.
So far, Nike has not yet confirmed the release dates of the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal”, although there have been rumors that the shoe might hit select Nike and The Jordan Brand stores come September this year. As soon as official report is out, you’ll be the first to know, so keep tuned here for upcoming news.
Nike is yet to release the price tag of the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal,” although news of a $200 USD price tag have been making the rounds. Once more information is made available, you’ll be the first to know.
Whether you love your Jordans in the iconic leather material or in this creative high quality Flyknit material, there’s no doubt you’ll appreciate this shoe’s exceptional design. In a year that Nike has dropped numerous exceptional retros and new designs, the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal” will certainly belong up there, with the best kicks so far.
In any case, this is definitely good news to those Air Jordan fanatics. We will surely update you of any details about the shoe as soon as new information arises.
