Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Rookie of the Year’ New color Releasing

The Air Jordan 1 ‘Rookie of the Year’ is an upcoming release which is inspired by what Michael Jordan wore during his Rookie of the Year acceptance speech back in 1985.

During Michael Jordan’s rookie year he averaged 28.2 points per game which lead the Chicago Bulls a playoff spot, the first in four years. On April 30th, 1985, Michael Jordan accepted the NBA Rookie of the Year award.

This Air Jordan 1 that celebrates the occasion comes dressed in a Gold Harvest and Black color combination. This unique color theme pays tribute to the Brown shirt MJ wore during his acceptance speech. Using White leather on the base while Wheat is applied to the overlays. Following we have Black detailing on the tongue label, ankle collar, Nike Swoosh logo and outsole. Completing the look we have a hidden message from Michael Jordan on the inside of the ankle collar.

Nigel Sylvester’s Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Close Look

Jordan Brand has inserted itself into a various number of sporting endeavors, establishing a palpable presence in football, baseball, and even golf. It’s dabbled in the high-octane world of car racing with Jordan Motorsports, while outfitting some of the toughest SOBs in the boxing ring. Today, Jordan Brand officially announces its collaboration with street BMX figure Nigel Sylvester of Queens, New York while introducing a special edition Air Jordan 1 designed by the man himself. This sail, red, black, and silver iteration of the Air Jordan 1 features hand-drawn markings around the shoe that denote specific zones of wear and tear that occur during the process of mastering a trick. Additionally, the medial Swoosh features reflective material for higher visibility on the NYC streets. Finally, the shoes and the box feature “Jordan Biking Co., Est. 2017”, a nod to the genesis of this project.

2001 vs. 2013 vs. 2017 Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Royal’ Comparison

It’s only been four years since the last go-round, but the ‘Royal’ Air Jordan 1 Retro is one of the year’s most anticipated sneaker releases. Originally released in 1985, the black and blue colorway first returned in 2001, before a 12-year hiatus until the next retro. This time, Jordan Brand is promising remastered quality, which means they tried to construct it as close to the original as possible.To determine how well they did with the 2017 version, we compared every ‘Royal’ Air Jordan 1 Retro to date, breaking them down by each detail. Read on to see how this year’s release stacks up against its predecessors.

QUARTER

The leather is different on each pair and the shade of blue gradually got brighter. Unlike the 2013 and 2017 releases, nubuck fills the Swoosh of the 2001 retro.

TONGUE

The font used for Nike Air embroidery is different on each tongue, as is the material used to construct them.

LINING

There’s less padding on the 2013 retro compared to the 2001 and 2017 pairs, along with a different lining pattern. The backside of the tongue on the 2001 pair features the Jumpman logo and production number. Logo on the back of the tongue and lining color is white on the 2017 retro and black on the other two.

HEEL

Sizing of heel tabs varies each year. There’s no black stitching on the heel tab on the 2013 pair and the tab is a bit higher on this year’s retro. The 2013 pair appears to be more narrow when looking at it from behind when compared to the 2001 and 2017 pairs.

COLLAR

Note the size, shape and positioning of the Wings logo on each pair.

INSOLE

After the Jumpman graced the insoles of the 2001 Jordan retro, Nike Air returned in 2013 and again this year, but this time on OG-style white insoles.

TOEBOX

The size and arrangement of the perforations differ on each pair, as does the general narrowness of the toeboxes.

SHOE BOX

The 2001 release came with the ‘Jordan Face’ box, while the OG-style box returned for the 2013 and 2017 releases.

Kawhi Leonard Wearing Gold Air Jordan 1s

Kawhi Leonard has been spotted wearing various exclusives which includes the Gold Air Jordan 5, Gold Air Jordan 11 and Gold Air Jordan 12. Recently he was seen wearing the Gold Air Jordan 1.

Looking closer at this flashy and luxurious Air Jordan 1, we cans that Jordan Brand applied Metallic Gold across the uppers while Blue lands on the Wings logo and laces. Completing the look we have White running across the midsole along with a translucent outsole.

Below you can check out another image of the Gold Air Jordan 1. More than likely this pair won’t release to the public but let us know in the comments section if you think Jordan Brand should release them. Make sure to check back with us for more exclusives.

New Colorway of Air Jordan 1 Retro High Flyknit Details

The Air Jordan 1 continues to be the most versatile silhouette in the Jordan Brand’s arsenal as it has been dressed up in the most colors and is now being offered in numerous Flyknit selections. The initial “Bred” colored Flyknit drop was met with a bit of criticism as fanatics and purists did not favor the new construction. However, that hasn’t stopped the Jumpman as more and more of the silhouette with flexible uppers continue to hit shelves. Now, another illustrious color scheme – the Shadow – is getting the same makeover with the recurring 1985 detail in the inside of the tongue. While the OG Air Jordan 1 Shadow is scheduled to release in April of next year, this Flyknit selection is set to drop on January 13th.
