The Air Jordan 1 was the shoe to started it all for Nike and Jordan Brand together. Released in 1985, Tinker Hatfield, designer, and Michael Jordan constructed a shoe that would banned by Commissioner David Stern. The original colorway was black and red with a white midsole. The shoe was banned due to a lack of white within the shoe. This lead to Nike releasing a multitude of colorways for their new Jordan Brand. Which brings us to the Royal Air Jordan 1, these have not seen a re-release since 2001. Finally, Jordan & Nike have decided to bring them back with a release date set for February 16th, with a retail price of $140, $75 more than the original price in 1985.
This shoe is my Holy Grail of sneakers. I have been searching high and low for this shoe finally, my search will come to an end. With this being one of the most anticipated releases of the year, they will be hard to come by. Getting one pair will be a difficult task alone in itself, yet I plan on buying two pair if I am lucky enough.
