Handmade Air Jordan 1 Review

Handmade Air Jordan 1

This Handmade Air Jordan 1 from Vibe Remake Lab is better than any Jordan Brand release other than those from 1985. It’s almost unbelievable.

Price: $600

Total Score

The Air Jordan 1 has been around since 1985 and we haven’t seen a one-for-one retro since. Some unauthorized sources do it better than Jordan Brand and this Handmade Air Jordan 1 is living proof. This looks like it could’ve been one of the original pairs, from the shape to the material quality. It’s more expensive with a price tag of $600, but it shows that it is possible to bring back the 1985 version if you’re doing the work with the proper care and love.
