A second original Air Jordan 1 colorway is ready to hit stores – only this time it’s done right. The Black/Varsity Royal colorway does indeed carry the heralded ‘Nike Air’ in a interesting year of brand follies, but unlike the 2001 Retro release, these aren’t individually numbered via a label on the back of the tongue. Dropping right smack in the middle of one of the biggest release weekends of the year, does the Air Jordan 1 ‘Royal’ have the strength to elbow its way to the top? Cop them tomorrow at select Jordan Brand retailers (Excluding Nikestore) and see what’s available now from neo122401 on eBay.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG
this release was mad fishy i'm sad...why release then at 2 stores in Houston on all-star weekend im not tryna die for no shoes
True to the original but not worth the $152 after tax in my opinion. However, I'm sure these will fly off the shelf.
Not too popular here in aus, but i got a pair this morning and the leather's like all wrinkled and creased, anyone else getting that?
It hurts my heart to know that I will likely not have these tomorrow. I've wanted these g thangs for years now
Sucks no stores near me are getting them either. I guess I'll be camping online with the rest of you G's...
@SkilledHooper82 Where are they selling them online?My HoH sold out.
@sneakeraddictsz you got a size 7.5
@TREYMiCHAELS Do you have these in a 9.5?
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite ya my whole left shoe looked like it came from the 2001 release :( i was pissed but i love the shoe
@DreamChaser I'm half and half. I'm glad I got a pair I just wish for once the quality was up to par. The nike swoosh on my right shoe looked tattered and this is a brand new shoe. Would be cool if sneaker news did a post about the rising cost of air jordans and the decline in quality.
@inglewattz 8 am on eastbay and footaction
@jrlemons3 That's why I love living in jersey
@JashuaHo yeh dude in nz i lined up outside my footlocker store at like 7:50am n there was only like 2 other ppl there. mine are wrinkled as well but nowadays whenever i get jordan releases im not expecting the leather or glue jobs to be that gud
@DeeeCray I heard finishline will have them, but I'm not sure.
@adadalives yeaa flaws on jordans is to be expected these days seems like every pair ive gotten has something wrong with it but kids are showing jb they can release a shoe with holes in them and shit all over them and just put a jumpman theyll sell out
@KierenGarrison Just called,they said noL:(. HOH only
@DeeeCray Wow are you kidding me? I'm pissed.
