For now, it arrives in just the spiked form as a luxurious blend of sail, driftwood, and rattan color up this elegant package. Above this layer sits exposed elements of the Nike FitAdapt lacing system. Not that this Black Cement Gold is bad or anything, but again, it's just so close to the all-time classic that it's almost. Today's weather - in New York City, at least - was one of the earliest signs of Spring, as the temperature finally reached just under 70 degrees. Other notable design details include dimpled midfoot overlays, a carbon fiber plate, and Zoom Air cushioning. Underfoot, the Why Not Off-White x Nike Dunk Zer0.4 incorporates a double-stacked Zoom Air bag to help improve responsiveness and cushioning during play.
La Flame's now-signature backwards swoosh on the Nike Off White lateral side reprises its role, while University Red flair animate branding on the top of the tongue and upper heel overlays. While we may feel a bit deprived of AJ1s, there will be a big wave of OG 1s coming this summer 2022 - one of which being this Stage Haze colorway. As if the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG needed any more visibility on the market, Jordan Brand is ready to unleash the most visible colorway yet. Covered in a classic Volt hue on the timeless Chicago-style color-blocking, this Air Jordan 1 Visionaire is not for those who rely on subtlety and neutral tones.
Like every other Air Jordan before it, the Air Jordan 12 was immensely popular. It released again in 2003 in colorways both new and old, while a new low-top version also debuted. From the Air Jordan 1 to the latest Air Jordan 35, Jordan Brand has built a strong legacy Off White x Nike predicated on the legendary Michael Jordan. First is the AF1 Shell, a style predicated on lightweight protection from seasonal elements. And considering the shoe is to arrive featuring Nike Air along the heel, it's likely the Retro will garner the attention of as many old fans as it has new ones. Compared to its last appearance in 2013, this pair thankfully forgoes the Jumpman logo at the rear.
