There was once upon a time when the red and green ‘Gucci’ color scheme was much more out of reach on any Swoosh adorned products, the prize in that realm being that coveted Nike SB Dunk High from 2005. Of course a retro eventually rolled around, letting a good number more folks grab the luxury palette as interpreted by the sneaker world. Heck, Jordan Brand’s even been there before if you’ll recall this Air Jordan 2.0 colorway. While there is obviously no official connection here to the beloved luxury brand, anytime this color combo pops up, the nickname seems inevitable at this point. Donning the red and green this time around is the Air Jordan 1 Phat, shown here with the popular color makeup and a good looking tumbled texture up top.

So only the "Knicks" get the blessing of the Nike Air tag and no jumpman on back? Smh, oh well this colorway is SOLID. I will try to go out and buy em!
