It has been a highly anticipated release that has been flowing through the heart of social media for around 2 months now with small teases and glimpses wetting our appetite for an amazing update on one of the most iconic sneakers in the world.
In 1985, the Air Jordan 1 was constructed from the most forward thinking and pinnacle materials at the time. To keep up with the times and evolve, Nike has built the 1 with the freshest and best materials of this time period, which happens to be the intricate Flyknit weave that we see today.
What makes this release even more sought after is the fact that they are opening this new chapter with the renowned 'Banned/Bred' colourway that is engrained in the sneaker culture and has seen any other sneaker that follows a similar colour to be dubbed 'Bred' showing how much of an impact these have had over the decades.
It still follows the conventions of the Air Jordan 1 but with a new sleeker Flyknit design. Featuring a premium leather Swoosh and tongue, along with Nike Air branding on the tongue and sock-liner. There are subtle details that take this release to a new level of awesomeness, on the inner collar Nike pays homage to the original Jordan 1 release year and retrospectively the year of this release with "19852017" printed in Gold. The heel contains a Zoom Air unit that adds extra comfort whilst retaining the same look as the original pair. Another unique touch is on the inside of the tongue with more Gold embellishments, this time 1985 is attached to a spool which is a reference to the Flyknit production.
What makes this release even better is the fact that if you have children you can get matching pairs making the whole family #SquadGoals, thanks to them also being available in GS sizes.
These are going to be a highly sought-after pair of kicks thanks to the exclusiveness and its the first ever time the Jordan 1 has received a Flyknit upgrade so they are the next piece of history to enter the archive.
