The return king is returning, the legendary 'Royal'! Arguably the most heralded colourway in the iconic Air Jordan 1 Retro High is back with an incredible new Flyknit look. The combination of such an illustrious silhouette, ground-breaking Flyknit technology & an outstanding colourway, does it really get any better?
When Nike first released the Air Jordan 1 in Michael's rookie year they broke the mould, changing the way the world looked at basketball sneakers and altering the direction of street fashion all with one silhouette. This progression has continued through the years, not only with numbered signature models but through re-engineering & redesigning classics and bringing them back into the limelight. Some of these slight twists on the originals are desired most highly of all. The Air Jordan 1 series has continued in the same vain, now moving in to 2017 with the most innovative 1 to date.
This edition is all about fabrication and just how far technology can be pushed while staying true to the roots of a model, because that's exactly why we've loved this model for as long as we have. Intricately woven Flyknit panels make up the entirety of the upper, blending tones of Game Royal and Black to create a modern classic. Shaving off every milligram of additional weight along the way, giving you unparalleled comfort and a lighter feel than ever before.
The finishing touches are always what pushes the next release beyond the last, and the latest sure doesn't disappoint. With gold branded internal leather branding telling the story of the Air Jordan 1 and it's progression into the Flyknit family, with dates and a golden spool of thread.
These are simply unmissable, no mater if you're the most hardcore of Jordan collectors, a fan of the game or you're only just getting into sneakers, you need a pair!
Launching at 08:00BST on 07/10/2017 priced at £139.
