It was no secret that Jordan Brand was ready to give this classic silhouette a modernized update.
Nike has revamped the Air Jordan 1 with modern material construction on an old — but beautiful — silhouette. Utilizing Flyknit along the entire upper and premium leather overlays, the version of the Air Jordan 1 is like nothing we’ve seen before. The materials are not the only thing they’ve changed as the heel will feature a Zoom Air unit.
Within the shoe there is a graphic reading “19852017” that honors the original Air Jordan 1 release year and launch of the Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit respectively.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit releases on September 9 at select retailers. Retail price has yet to be officially announced.
Let us know your thoughts on this new take on the Air Jordan 1 below and stay tuned for updates regarding the release.
