Next month, Jordan Brand looks to bring back one the Air Jordan 1 Royal, one of its most popular colorways of the sneaker. An original colorway from 1985, this pair always receives a warm welcome from sneakerheads, and has even influenced a few additional sneakers, like the hard-to-find “J-Pack” Dunk SB Low. Here’s a detailed look at what we can expect this time.
Just like its predecessors, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Royal sports full leather construction, primarily consisting of black. Royal Blue serves a main attention-getter however, used at the heel, on the swoosh, and the toe box area. Black laces and a matching nylon tongue blend in nicely, while the sole is molded in white and Royal Blue. Staying true to the sneaker’s original release, the Nike Air tongue logo remains unchanged, giving it a vintage appeal.
Retailing for the expected price of $160, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Royal will hit stores on Saturday, April 1, 2017. Expect this one to move quite fast, as this colorway is always in high demand. If you’d prefer to skip the lines and secure your pair now, you can find all sizes available now on eBay.
