As expected, Jordan Brand has created a special Air Jordan 1 colorway to celebrate Black History Month this year. Here’s an official look as well as release info on the sneaker.
This year’s model utilizes an almost all-black design, primarily constructed of full-grain leather material. Utilizing a feature that we haven’t seen since the Air Jordan 1 Patch and Air Jordan 4 Tour Yelow days, the graphics are all attached via velcro patches. Two sets of patch graphics have been included: gold/black and black gold. This gives you the option of having two colorways in one, one of which greatly resembles the infamous Black/Metallic Gold Metallic 1s, but with the use of leather versus patent leather. Compared to previous Air Jordan 1 Black History Month releases this pair is a little simplistic, but having to option of modifying the colorway with just the swap of a few patches more than makes up for it.
Priced at $150, you’ll be able to get the Air Jordan 1 BHM 2017 in stores this Saturday, February 11. Online sites like Nike.com will release the sneaker at 10:00 AM EST. If you’d like to secure your pair early, you can find all sizes now on eBay. Click here to go directly to the search listings.
