The Jordan release 2018 rooster is up to a flying start with there already being a couple of notable brands already taking to the shelf. And today we shift our attention to another set of new Jordans earmarked for a February debut in the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG.
Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe
Color: Gym Red/Black-Summit White
Style Code: 555088-610
Release Date: February 24, 2018
The company has been experimenting with OG greats of yesteryears swapping material, pattern and colorways to reimagine an exhausted look in revitalized fashion. The said AJ is set to take its rightful place alongside its remastered cousins in the “Bred toe” and “Game Royal” variation that also make the market on the same day.
These new sneakers are almost a carbon copy of the “City of Flight” variation that was released on the 10th January in preparation for the NBA All-Stars weekend as it also channels a summit white, metallic gold and black color coding that was employed in the aforementioned design. The upper body has a scaly feel to it with it adopting an enchanting obsidian variation of tumbled leather with laces and other upside accessories also falling in line with the pitch black theme.
The metallic gold sparks the darkness to life and is used to bring out Jordan’s ever-present touch with a trademark, in the form of an alluring Nike Air moniker, standing tall at the edge of the black tongue. More subtle company artwork comes in the form of a gold outlined swoosh that spreads out across the sides of the sneakers with a winged gold NBA crest rounding off the pleasantries near the top of the collar area. The summer white, on the other hand, is solely used to partition the top from the bottom with the endearing shade employed gorgeously to model the broad midsole.
Further south, the partly translucent almost icy outsole is laced with a dash of subtle blue that complements the whiteness below it endearingly. This partly obscured canvas is home to a couple of artistic patterns and rounds off the entire presentation quite beautifully even slightly overflowing on to the outer edge of the midsole above it. In a nutshell, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is a true work of bewitching dark magic.
The when’ and how much’ explained
This slick piece of footwear takes on the world on the 2nd month of the year but the exact date is still yet to be confirmed with some reports sighting the 23rd as a possibility. With regards to the pricing, however, it seems these new sneakers will cost somewhere in the region of $ 160.
