Our exclusive “Beauty Shots” photo galleries of the most coveted sneaker releases of 2013 continues with the next installment of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG bring-back movement. This original “Shadow” release from 1985 was one of several off-the-court Lifestyle-derived colorways of the Air Jordan 1, which have proven to be a bigger draw than the classic team-based Bulls compositions. The immense energy surrounding the Air Jordan 1, the most Retro’ed Air Jordan model in the entire legacy, has been a direct result of Jordan Brand’s focus on keeping it “OG”, with superior materials and the esteemed “Nike Air” tongue label giving these aged models a rejuvenated presence in the sneaker scene.
The Air Jordan 1 ” Shadow” arrives in 2013 with a Black/Soft Grey composition, keeping close to the original Grey tone with the synthetic leather uppers giving the Retro a true vintage feel. Although Michael himself has never worn these in a game, the 2013 AJ1 re-issues have displayed a rather unique trend in that the off-the-court colorways – the Royal and Black/Gold for instance – have been the more popular picks. That said, we project this upcoming release to be met with equal fervor, so enjoy the detailed “Beauty Shots” gallery of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shadow” below and stay tuned for the official release.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shadow” releases on July 13th, 2013 with an MSRP of $140.
