It looks like the Air Jordan 1 ‘Black Toe’ will be joining the ranks of the Air Jordan 1 ‘Royal’ as far as 2013 retros to feature “Nike Air” branding on the tongue. Shown here are the first photos of the exciting release, promising the return of one of the more sought after Air Jordan 1 styles, a subtle flip on the standard Bulls colorway. Click through with us to check out the Air Jordan 1 ‘Black Toe’ 2013 retro and stay tuned with Sneaker News for style info and a release date. Also, let us know in the comments where you rank this as far as must haves for next year.

Thank God! If that's the case, bring back the proper red of the XI and reversed Jumpman on the left shoe, please.
And so begins the "Jordan Retro Heritage Collection". Me and my guy called this as the next, only.logical move for JB about 2 years ago. I dig it.
Good AJ 1s coming out. With the black toes coming along with the red toes...IMO have a feeling the bred 1s will follow later in 2013 and hope so it will be good if they do drop as a GS so all can get them.....this time with no strap, no part of a pack and no last minute drop in limited outlets like the banneds
Hopefully after these they will give the Air Jordan 1 and all of its offspring (Phat, Alpha) a rest!
Damn these r OG thats great but fuck theyre gonna be fucking hard 2 get n expensive cuz they have the Nike air on the tongue probably the 1st retro 1s to be priced 165
I already have the Banned 1's & I'm happy as hell that the Black/Royal Blue 1's are dropping & the Chicago Bull 1's. I didn't like the OLNL Black Toes bc they were released in a Mid-Top cut so I'm happy JB decided to release the Black Toes in the OG High-Top version this time around. I will definitely be getting these.
Great Job Jordan Brand for getting rid of their pride and sticking the "Nike Air" back on the tongue. MUST HAVE
These were the shoes that got me into sneakers, I remember when I was in 2nd grade I always went to go look at these and at least once a week I looked at them for 15 minutes. Then I finally saved up for em and copped a pair. I most definitely need to get another pair.
I couldn't care less about Nike Air being on the tongue. Just JB trying to satisfy you "OG-Heads" without giving up their fight for becoming their own brand.
definently going to cop a pair of these and the chicago 1s i dnt care about nike air on the tongue jut like the shoes in general however i dnt like the white tongue
Im not even a air jordan 1 kind of guy but these will prolly be between 135 -150 bcuz of he word nike air. Hey its business and jordan will make his money cuz his ppl read these blogs and he knows ppl are waiting for these. They cool so ppl shouldnt complain when retro 1's go from 105 to 150.
am i trippin, or is the tongue supposed to be black? They black on mine...hopefully its is black when they release.
yet the chicago 1s don't get a nike air...wth is this crap JB?! at least take the jumpman off the heel on the chicago 1s....but these are still legit and i'll probably cop.
@hozezae Your right they'll probably be $140-$160 because of "Nike Air" on the tongue. But here's the messed up part, in 2001 The Retro 1's were $79.99... Now here's what's really messed up... Nike just upping the price cuz they can... It has nothing to do with the words "Nike Air" on the shoe..
Last Year Banned 1's retailed for $109.99, came with 3 pair of Lace (Red, Black & white) a nice two piece box, & Good quality leather... Anybody that has them can tell you the leather was good materials,
So yes it can still be done for a good price, but why would Nike miss out on an extra $40.00 per pair, when the hype assures them they can sell them for $175.00 if they wanted to... No matter what the retail price is they will sell out....
@mrELsenor They have to maintain some kind on leverage on the market to make you return for the next release down the road. The emotions you just displayed in your comment is exactly what they need. Modifications are done to piss you off. However, the end result is you or someone else will still buy. It's cat and mouse my friend.
@Sneakerhead2320 @hozezae ur so right they could price them 200 n they will sell in 2 seconds look at the retro 11 this year its gonna be around 180 thats bullshit n the retro 4s r 160 when they were cheaper before
@BoricuaSole ur absolutly right.
