In terms of buzz and retail success, the safest bet in sneakers right now may be the Air Jordan 1. An even safer bet is bringing back original colorways of the model, which generally appeases enthusiasts from all generations.
Sole Retriever reports that the original “Royal” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High, not “Black Toe,” is set to release this holiday season. While OG-style color blocking has been confirmed, the site speculates about what the ‘Reimagined’ designation will mean for this pair, throwing out a leather-to-suede material change as something we may see. For last year’s popular “Lost & Found” release, the brand brought back the original “Chicago” colorway with a vintage makeover—a look most sneakerheads will likely covet for the “Royal” release. At this time, additional details about the look of the upcoming retro aren’t known.
What is known is that the “Royal” Air Jordan 1 High Reimagined will release in full-family sizing, starting at $180 for men’s pairs. Keep an eye on this space for new information and the first images as soon as they surface.
