The new Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Clay Green’ is expected to drop this April as one of a few “Black toe” themed sneakers. This new colorway will be in a limited release which means all its lover will need to get their pair early on.
The dubbed ‘Clay Green’ sneaker’ is similar to the “Black toe” Jordan 1 with a subtle difference in color. While “Blak toe” was dressed in Red, ‘Clay Green’ will replace the Red with a clay Green.
This Air Jordan 1 Retro will have a combination of Summit White, Black, and Clay Green color. The clay Green is what has made the sneaker a favorite claiming the nickname ‘Clay Green’ all while setting it apart from the nicknamed “Black toe’. A sneaker that has had its success in the Jordan Brand collection.
The three color will be featured in the leather upper of the sneaker. The tongue welcome a white color with a Nike swoosh and Nike Air branding. Wings branding are well placed on the ankle. The midsole is also in white with the outsole completing the look in Green.

Style Code: 555088-135
Release Date: May 5, 2018
This design makes the new sneaker look like everything that Air Jordan’s stand for. It is a classic and one that will be welcomed during the Spring. It unveils as one of Jordan release 2018 under the Spring 2018 collection. A collection that welcomes some of Jordan Brands best work and we can confidently say the Air Jordan Retro will be one of the sneakers that leads the charge into Spring.
The sneakers are expected to drop on the 1st May 2018, a date that cannot come any sooner for ‘Clay Green’ fans. Fans will have the date circled on their calendars and their eyes set on the nearest Jordan retail store.
Air Jordan 1 Retro will be available at select Jordan Brand stores and given that they will be limited, those stores will be considerably fewer than usual. The sneakers will also be available online, which would be the easiest way to get yourself a pair of the limited sneakers.
They will retail at $160 which again makes them very affordable compared to other Spring drops. However, this means the race to get a pair gets more competitive with every sneaker finder looking to add it to their Jordan collection.
Unfortunately for its fans, there are no picture releases from Jordan Brand and much of what is available is photoshop of the dubbed “Black toe” to give a representation of what ‘Clay Green’ will look like. And it looks good, if it is anything like the pictures being floated around, it will be absolutely spot on.
The new Air Jordan 1 Retro brings back the classic Jordan look that every sneaker fan loves and adores in every Air Jordan sneaker. It will be a must-have shoe in the Spring and a classic sneaker far down the road. For every fan, it will be a rush getting the sneaker after its release given its limited but I reckon it will be worth the hustle.
