Despite not being an OG rendition with Nike Air cues, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High ‘Melo’ has received approval from many sneakerheads. The sneaker has all the black placements of popular colorways of the 1 like the ‘Royal’ and ‘Bred’ versions, but with gold replacing the blue and red, respectively. This shoe differs from those classic colorways in that the black portions on the upper are made out of nubuck, and of course, there is Melo branding on the tongue.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High ‘Melo’ is expected to release in 2015. Stay tuned to WearTesters for official release info. Let us know your thoughts on the shoe in the comments below. Which other Jordan Brand athlete do you think deserves a retro PE release?
