Hard to believe that these are making a come back after an almost 30 year absence from the court. First released in 1985, this Sport Blue make up of the OG Retro 1’s return in a canvas silhouette that is sure to keep hardcore fans on lock.
I’m a huge fan of canvas especially the AJKO series from Jordan Brand. When I found out that these were releasing, I couldn’t imagine myself without these in my collection. Holding a very similar color scheme to its Royal Blue cousin, this familiar color blocked sneaker are indeed to be just as clean. However, the biggest difference between the two other than the materials is the midsole. This edition uses tooling borrowed from the Nike Vandal as it features a midsole different than the standard Air Jordan 1 model. Personally, I enjoy this setup a lot better as it brings a different and unique look to the popular model. You don’t got to wait until 2015 for a high-quality sneaker as these AJKO’s are and have always been A1.
Quick Tip: Since the material on these are canvas, you can use Jason Markk’s shoe cleaner to keep these fresh. View our video showing a quick JM demonstration here.
The Air Jordan Retro 1 AJKO High OG Sport Royal will release Saturday August 23rd for $140.00 USD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koXGt-zcW-s
