No Nike Air? No problem. Jordan Brand’s coming through with an OG-inspired Jordan Brand box for at least the Air Jordan 1 Retro releases (and certainly for this Air Jordan 1 High). Of course, you wont find the daring red Nike/Swoosh logo that was on the original, but instead the equally-iconic Wings logo takes its place. We’ll keep you updated on other packaging ideas that Jordan Brand may have in store, so check out the new photos of the OG Air Jordan 1 High re-issue below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all your Jordan updates and news.
Air Jordan 1 High
Just found out the retail price is $130 on these. Checkout solecollector and look at release dates. More playoff 13's are coming out dont know but check it out
I see more bitching about the bitching about the Nike Air Tag. Just shut up all together. I'm sure all of us are over it.
This is the best retro ever made but seriously stop crying n bitching over no Nike air who gives a damn if it doesnt have it ur all gonna get it anyway plus nikes putting a special box so ppl wont cry over no special box like the retro 11s
That's cool they dumbed down the Dave White box.... But I like the packaging! That should help sell these next year...
Yessss. The 5's are coming with a box identical to the one they came in during OG times. I will forever love these special boxes.
dont know if i should get these or the blk and blue but the box is str8t idont lik the boxes where its lik a lid
Jb with the goodies man. They have a lot of great moves but some odd ones as well this is sick tho and I'm looking forward to seeing the V of box since next year is year of the 5s
I cant wait to put red laces in these just like MJ did when he dropped 63 in these against Boston. Still can't believe it took JB 19yrs. to re-retro these. The box is dope, definitely wasn't expecting to see it again. Hopefully the Blk/Blue Royal 1's & Blk Toe 1''s get the OG treatment with the box also. People really need to stop with the whole "NIKE AIR" on the tongue tag. ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN, UNLESS YOU HAVE $1,500 TO DROP ON A '94 RETRO, THE JUMPMAM WILL REMAIN. Or u you can use common sense & get an old pair of Wht/Red Nike Dunks & take the tongue tag off of those & put them on the Chicago Bull 1's
Atleast this should shut ppl up about the nike air nothing there then again sum will still bitch about it. Im not a fan of 1's but these look sweet, hopefully this box will resolve the unhappy campers
i would like "Nike Air". but if they did do that, they would be even harder for me to get smh. #fuckhype
@hozezae this is my only complaint if that's what you want to call it. Without the Nike air these just look like a pair of aj 1 phat. I know there some material differences but as far as looks go these look like phats especially with that jumpman on the back.
@James Lowery This is the shoe that started it all, the whole sneaker culture. There are people who still have the Og's in their collection (such as Pops and older brothers). To most collectors, these are the jewel of their collection. Modifying the shoe a little Is a nod and show of respect by MJ and Nike to those who had the courage to hold onto their pairs. I don't agree with every move JB makes, but this one had to be done!
@Lusinmader I can feel that
@Lusinmader @hozezae yeah they do look like 1s!!! So do aj 1 phats. My point is with the jumpman on the heel and tounge they don't look distinctly different.
