The Air Jordan 1 was the maiden sneakers of their kind that first saw the day of light over 30 years ago. At the time, NBA deemed them in breach of regulations with regards to uniform policy and as such Michael Jordan was punished for wearing them every time he took to the court. Eventually, the matter was resolved with the giant shoemaker paying back the superstar for all his penalty troubles and the AJs were then officially in the clear paving way for numerous other alterations that would emerge from the skeleton of the vintage sneakers.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG LA
Color: Black/Metallic Gold-Summit White
Style Code: 555088-031
Release Date: January 10, 2018
The pioneer Air Jordan 1 has seen countless remodeling come its way over its three decades of existence making it the most retro’ed AJ collection ever. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is another yet whipped up off the AJ 1 frying pan with this new variation seeking to add a bit of character and another chapter to the AJ1 story.
Features of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG
The upper body channels a gold accented black leather exterior that has become a synonymous colorway with the AJ 1 lineage. The enchanting tumbled leather consists of artistic perforations atop the foot area above which beautifully entwined white-spotted coal laces slither on the surface of a dark tongue.
The gold accents, on the other hand, come in the way of a classy Nike Air moniker that resides atop the tongue, a gold outlined Swoosh and a sparkly NBA winged crest logo that stands out gorgeously in the midst of the domineering black along the heel region.
A Summit-white midsole parts the upper and the base with the vibrant shade wrapping around the shoe perimeter before culminating in a partly translucent base. The latter is imbued with a set of mesmerizing yet laid back patterns strutting across the light blue surface that partially obscures the underlying white shade of the midsole above it. This icy outsole brings a fitting end to the metallic black, snow white and endearing gold color scheme that these new Jordans tap into.
