YES, to answer all you Jordanheads’ question about whether the above Air Jordan Retro Is are the pair coming out next month. And another YES to the question about whether the strap is removable or not. So all in all, we have some good news for everyone who has been waiting on the release of the Air Jordan I Retro High Strap. The shoe looks almost identical to the last retro of the Air Jordan I in this black/varsity-red colorway that dropped back in 2001.
The only difference is that there is an Air Jordan strap that is located around the ankle, but it looks like if you aren’t feeling this it can be easily removed. There also is a new piece of leather on the back that we haven’t seen on any Air Jordan Is which is a black patch that starts right above the Jumpman and becomes increasingly larger up until the back of the ankle. The shoes also appear to be the same size as the 2001 retro Air Jordan I releases, as opposed to the more recent releases that have been relatively lower cut in the upper. For those of you who have been hunting the 2001 retros but don’t want to drop the cash, look for these to have a limited release to urban accounts and Niketowns on November 28th and have an easier price tag of $110.00. via Kenlu and photos via LUVINTHAGAME on SoleCollector Forums.
