They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Ironically enough, the Air Jordan 1 continues to reinvent themselves every time the silhouette comes out with a fresh colorway. With the mass production of releases set to drop per year, making themes interesting is a tough task that Brand Jordan has no problem tackling. In recent memory, MJ’s original design has been remixed to alter Nike Swooshes down to exotic fabric options. As the wild world of customization is becoming more mainstream, this creative take on an all-time classic is made to ‘flip’ your perspective around.
The AJ1 High is an OG because of it’s iconic ‘Air Jordan’ logo with the flying basketball keeping its nickname afloat. Within that ankle, the section is an electric area of Volt highlighting the commemorated stamp. Volt accent is highlighted once again, this time printing ‘Nike Air’ on the cushioned insoles. Mainly, the base of the sneaker is White leather. For bold contrast, Black overlays were added up at the toe box and along with the shoelace unit. While tying your shoe, you might notice something distinctively distorted about this high soaring original. The tongue is completely exposed with a reversed tongue tag showcasing its authenticity. At first glance, you’ll notice the translucent tonal tag in University Gold to match the solid heel. Nothing says vintage influence like Sail on the tongue, laces, and midsole. Placing Sail in areas that usually turn pale over time is a great way to ensure that this shoe ages well with each wear.
