The 2015 releases of Air Jordan seem to have a high fascination for the color red. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Gym Red” isn’t the first one with an almost complete shade of red as its colorway. Let’s be clear though: the Gym Red was released in 2014 but continues to be a favorite this year.
A distinctive silhouette, the Air Jordan 1 is a favorite among many Jordan Brand fans. This is why it isn’t surprising that the Gym Red is making waves online as more and more people fall in line to grab a pair of these kicks. Sneaker News released an image of the Gym Red and upon close inspection, you can tell that the Jordan Brand went for something bold and brash this time. Apparently, their goal with the Gym Red is create a combination of classic and loud.
There’s really not much to tell about the Gym Red – the design speaks for itself. Majority of the body boasts of a red shade with the Nike swoosh mark adorning both sides of the shoes and joining together in a straight line along the heels. There’s a Wings logo along the ankles and of course, let’s not forget the Nike Air design in the middle of the tongue which is, by the way, also red. All the logos are done in clean, leather white which lets them stand out against the red backdrop.
The midsole are couched in an outstanding white and rimmed with a red outsole. The edging of the outsole is ribbed, providing a dimensional design – and a heavy-duty drip for each step taken by the wearer. Needless to say, these kicks will do well on the court – although of course, you can always use it to party. Either way, the red hue definitely stands out from the crowd.
The price and Jordan release date of the Gym Red is still unknown although it would definitely be this year, according to Sneaker news. Unfortunately, there’s no rumor about a GS version coming out – but considering the color palette used for this one, the Gym Red is definitely a guy’s shoe.
The price for the Gym Red is varied nowadays since it’s not exactly a brand new release. You should be able to find some which are significantly cheaper than the typical $120 price tag.
