Sneaker News was invited by Jordan Brand to preview some of the great footwear and apparel in store for the upcoming Holiday 2012 and Spring 2013 season. The entire layout was rock-solid from start to finish, as Jordan Brand’s designers Andre Doxey and Justin Taylor introduced their designs for Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony, but we couldn’t help but lay our eyes on this Spring 2013 beauty – the Air Jordan 1 High in the OG White/Red/Black. Arriving with the Jumpman logo on the tongue and heel, this Retro issue will bring forth that ’85 nostalgia that we’re certain even Michael feels from time to time. A detailed look is right ahead so take a look and stay tuned for more previews for Jordan Brand Holiday 2012/Spring 2013 here on Sneaker News.

Why the hell do all the other non og cw's of the Is get the Nike air on the tongue like the Knicks cw and not these? Smh.
No matter what, these will sell out and disappear into oblivion smfh. -___- Can't even cop from my favorite sneaker websites anymore!
1-900-GTFOH-YO. Really? No Nike Air. I was hyped before now I'm just like oh, another retro 1... whooptie doo.
One of my all time favorite shoe. To bad it doesn't have the Nike tag still gonna try and cop though. It is wat it is just gonna have to deal with it.
some of those that will buy this;
are obviously new to the shoe map.
This things have been retro plenty of times
and yet they can't seem to get it right like they did
back in 85.
My excitement for this long overdo retro has been turned down a few notches! But I still love the colorway & still plan on getting them!
The only question: WHY THE FCUK PUT NIKE AIR ON THE BLACK/ROYAL BUT NOT ON THIS FCUKING ORIGINAL WHITE/RED COLORWAY? PHUCK YOU JORDAN BRAND! THIS SHOULD BE HAVE THE NIKE AIR OVER THE REST OF THE ONES!
Take that fucking jumpman off the back jb. Is it really that hard to do so? Only reason ill cop is cause I ain't dishing out money for a 94 retro or a OG.
really upset that the jumpman is on the tongue and heel. The samples had nike air on tongue and no jumpman on the heel.
i can deal with the jumpman on the tongue...even tho the royals might get the nike air which seems unfair..whatever...but that jumpman on the heel is a tad bit annoying. can't say its gonna deter me from coppin tho. lol.
@mmancilla89 theve only retroed once and that was back in 94
@mmancilla89 plenty of times no. The last time this colorway got retroed in its true form was in 94 with Nike air in the tounge and they also released the 2 and 3. Then they did that horrible patent leather mid cut version in 03. And of course those ugly alpha and phat 1s don't count. Everyone complaining is still gonna cop so stop the bitching.
@Kev Loco the way i see it, jordan brand understand the state of the shoe game and they understand the hype behind 'nike air.' maybe, just maybe, theyre doing the people who own OGs and retros with 'nike air' on them a favor by keeping the 'nike air' off the newer retros because then, the older shoes still get respect. would you really bust your ass to get a 2001 pair of bc3s if the CDPs and 2011 retro had had 'nike air' on the back - no; and the same thing applies to all the new OG cw retros. if these had 'nike air' on the tongue and no jumpan on the back, would anyone go out of their way to hunt down the '94 or '85 ones anymore when they could just get a newer pair whose leather quality was slightly worse but negligible cuz they still looked like OGs just some food for thought
You clearly wrote this before seeing the new knicks 1s with the nike air. Breathe and just understand that nike and JB must hold meetings before every release where they ask themselves,"How can we piss off our loyal customers this time?" Ima still get em but JB is playin games with every Jordan collectors' hearts!
@RDZY I understand what you mean but if that's the case then explain the upcoming Black/Royal 1s
@RDZY You make no sense homie. Dudes buying OG and older retros with Nike Air doesn't put money in JB pocket. I don't see why they would even think about a thought like that in the 1st place. To be honest my 2 cents is that they know shit will sell regardless. Look how shitty the quality is. People will still cop. They know those blue/orange joints will sell just cause of the Nike air on it. Some dudes sell they older retros to cop they new ones.
@MartinD44 I'm still gonna buy em too. I love this colorway but its just wrong to people like us
@Dezfriednutz i peep your point but if that were the case why not put nike air on the OG colorways. unless youre saying the knicks 1s wont sell if the OGs had nike air on them, theres really no other reason why jb wouldnt put nike air on the tongue
