It recently gave way to a paradoxically named lowtop edition but don’t forget about the original hightop version of the Air Jordan Sky High. This classically styled sneaker takes cues from legendary basketball models like the Nike Blazer and Converse Chuck Taylor, resembles the recent Jordan Phly Legend, but is actually more of an Air Jordan Retro release, having originally dropped back in the late ’80s. This new Obsidian and Birch colorway is one that could have just as easily been seen back then, its smooth suede and leather construction a mark of timeless quality. There’s a Smoke brown pair on the way as well for Jordan Brand’s April 2011 collection but you can already grab the Obsidian Sky Highs today from Eastbay or get yours now on eBay.
