Sneaker News touched earlier this morning on how ‘Nike Air’ branding will play a huge role in 2013 Air Jordan releases, and it starts just after the turn of the year with a dope new palette for the design that started it all. The ‘Knicks’ Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG comes jam-packed with storyline implications thanks to one of the hottest colorways in basketball right now, so expect the Saturday, January 5th release to be a sign of things to come as sneakerheads look to get in early on the vintage vibes. Check out a new round of images after the jump and let us know if this first 2013 Air Jordan Retro will be your first purchase of the new year.

Game Royal/Team Orange
Copped... These and the bulls! It's funny how people pass and wait for the next or debate on a shoe they like. I mean why not cop both? I'm not missing no OG jordan CW or Jordan's dropped with Nike logo's! So the more people that pass should make these easier cops for those of us that want these retro OG releases, & OG CW's!
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite where u cop em at citysole had em last week
@crownmeking314 these are not OG mate. this colorway has the nike air tag because otherwise it would never sell a single pair.
@ChicoGetGreen that Nike Air tag makes it $30 more, didnt you hear?
@inTheNameofQuen My uncle is a DM (District Manager) of a footlocker in my area. So I get a majority of my Js a few days b4 release date... But fa kicks like those bred 11s or quick strike kicks I have to go thru dat raffle & reserve bullshit... but these & da bred 13s I will have in my possession on thurs homie
@NickBartzis sooo I guess "Retro 1 High OG" is a misprint! U might not have copped but I buy what I like, just like a million other sneaker heads! And I like this shoe period... But the Nike tag & packaging is a plus! 2nd the thunders in 06 weren't OG until they got retro'd in 2012... It was just a highly limited jordan that came out online for $500 most people slept on oh and it was MJ's Salute to his Motorcycle team or or WHATEVER I'm sure u knew that! So any Original CW that has never been released on a Jordan retro to me is an OG! Yeah it's on a Retro 4 but so what, like IMO the Cav 4's would be an OG CW! If they retro that shoe in 10yrs would the 2012 not be an OG? It's only dropped once EVER or does it not hold weight because it didn't come out in 89?? When our kids grow up & see these new CW's 10-20yrs from now they will be their retros and OUR OG's!!! I'm tired of u angry sneakerheads... Just enjoy the shoes my man, because we all will view these things differently! Just stop trying to shit on people... Many of us cop just because we LOVE sneakers! Happy holidays to u & ur family NICK!
