Last Thursday Sneaker News filled you in on a great collection of Air Jordan Retros slated for Spring 2013 – one of which is the OG colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High. The last time these were in stores was in 1994, when Michael was retired and Nike was considering “life after Jordan”, but it wasn’t 1985 when Michael last wore these (he broke out the ’94 Retros during his final game as a Bull at Madison Square Garden in 1998). We’ve given you some details regarding this Spring 2013 release, and we can confirm that the tongue label will indeed feature the Jumpman Air label instead of Nike. A potential disappointment to some, but these AJ1s are too crisp to pass up, so check out the extra angles below and stay tuned for more updates on all upcoming Air Jordan Retro releases.

These are so whack ... I bet u resellers are gonna be all over this one becuase of u guyz hypeing these sneakers up.. Kicks cost like 7 bucks to make and there gonna be shitty qaulity like every other retro jordan #sneakergameisdead
I love you fake A$$ hype beast that come on these sites and do crowd control on all these kids. Has no one ever taken the time to think about the paid corporate cronies & their, "your stupid for not wanting/buying everything attitude?" We know for a fact that the quality of the sneakers are going down hill. The only way that will change is to stop buying them. People are sheep and want change but are not willing to sacrifice for it. Its sad but, that's whats wrong with our society & our world.
Of course ill still buy these, fuck the quality, it isn't like i could afford the OG's. These are a classic so is a must cop for me.
must haves loved these as a child who gives a crap about a jump man on the tounge I'm not even old enough to remember the check .. a great i conic shoe shoe nike check or not
I think it's crazy how everybody can tell immediately from ONE picture how "bad" the quality is when this more than likely not the final product, its only june 2012.
These are a must cop, hope they release some more metallic 1's like they did back in 09, but if those sellout something's SERIOUSLY wrong.
Copping one to wear like this and another to paint the to black so I can finally have a high top pair of black toes.
People tend to sleep on 1s normally which is good for me because they do release a few joints that are nice and some of the aj 1 phat are nice too but I just hope JB doesn't see all this attention and talk and raise the price to like $145-150...sad day if they do
INSTACOP! I love the roper dope comments by some on here "Bad quality" "Not quite right" You KNOW you gonna get these as soon as they come out, stop lying to YO SELF!
The pictures are nice and I'm sure everyone is psyched but I wish SN would stop putting up postings FOR SHOES THAT WON'T COME OUT FOR ANOTHER FUCKIN' YEAR!!!!! Shakin My Muthafuckin Head!!!
Nobody knows how long I've been waiting on these to come back. JB should have brought these back in 2009 with the DMP's (even though I have the blk/red 1's)but bc he didn't even wear the blk/red 1's when he scored 63. I'm happy to see these coming back after 18yrs since the 1st retro. Def. COP and also the Blk/Royals.
i'm beyond excited for these! can't wait to put my feet in these...i'm not one to cop mote than one pair but i might have to just out of pure love for the shoe.
Thats what i was wondering if they are going to be the regular retro 1 price... But just because they are a OG colorway and style same with the Royals and plus the price has gone up every year i expect these to be higher... I got the AJKOs and mad people slept on those so hopefully the non success of those will help jordan price these right
These look reallllllll crispy. Talk about the pleather and toe shape all you want, but there's no denying that JB recognize's the greatness of this shoe and cw.
A classic. I will keep my eye out 4 these. 1 shoe I got get in 2013 along with the bred 13's. But let them tell it " THE WORLD IS GONNA END" Lol
nice kill a classic, good job jb good job. im never buyinyg a new retro you guys keep this plastic synthetic trash
Something about them... just looks not right or off. When I look at them they just don't have that OG feel to them.
because they have that plasticky, cheap looking sheen to them. the OGs you could just tell by looking at them that the leather quality was good.
