Have you already been spoiled by the early looks at 2013’s Air Jordan 1 retros featuring featuring Nike Air on the tongue? Hopefully not, because this Air Jordan 1 High that’s on its way for January won’t feature that little bonus, but otherwise is a pretty spot on remake of the Bulls style colorway that put the sneaker on the map so many years ago. Click through with us to check out the Air Jordan 1 High in white/varsity red/black and let us know in the comments below if you’re picking up a pair.
Air Jordan 1 High
JB is "not looking out for og collectors" by releasing these with the Jumpman on the tongue rather than Nike Air. Please believe that this colorway will release with Nike Air on the tongue down the line when they are re-retroed. JB like any business is about $$$$$$$$$$$$. Why give the consumer/addict everything they want upfront, you need to preserve some things in the stash (e.g. Columbia's, Indigo's, etc) for a "rainy day" so that the consumer/addicts comes back for their next hit.
Wow these r fucking nice 4sure copping these. This is great this year retro 4s nxt year retro 1s thats wassup n whats with everyone crying cuz theres no Nike air tongue cmon grow up if u want that go 2 ebay n spent 1000 4 some OG or get some high top air force
Why are y'all so mad over a logo? Jordan Brand hasn't been putting Nike Air on a shoe for a good 10-11 years. You would think people would stop expecting it by THEN. And even if it is on the Royal's and Black Toe's it's only on the tongue. The back of the shoe is still a Jumpman. The tongue really does not make a difference at all. Either you like the shoe or not. Don't let a stupid logo stop you from getting what you want. Gosh.
I'm so happy these are dropping next year. But 19yrs for a re-retro of the Chicago Bull 1's was too long of a wait bc they did retro the Banned 1's 5 times & they even retro the Blue Royal 1's 11yrs. ago. Anyway I already have the Banned 1's & I'm glad I'm gonna have the Blue Royal, Chicago Bull, & Black Toe 1's all in one year. So what these don't have the NIKE BRANDING (I WOULD PREFER IT) they're still classics on gonna end up on my feet.
@23kicksfor23chicks I heard there's no jumpman on the back of the black toe. I think most of us wouldn't be so pissed if the jumpman was on all of the new Jordan 1s, but to make some cws with the nike tag and this legendary og colorway with the jumpman is really a bummer!
@samgomez85 That's for a few select colorways. I believe the Royals, Black toes, and Knicks will have the "Nike Air" on the tongue. However these will have the Jumpman so people can tell the diffrence between yours with the Jumpman, and my 2 pairs with the original "Nike Air". The homie MJ looking out for those 90's head......Much appreciated!
