Up until the Bin 23 Collection, Jordan Brand rarely ‘numbered’ their releases, choosing to keep the production quantities undisclosed to the public. One such exception was the collection of Air Jordan 1 Retro releases at the beginning of the 21st Century, like the Black/Royal Retro that was limited to a specific number of shoes – so specific that Jordan Brand itself could never figure out how many to release! Here’s some clarification on the matter; some pairs were numbered out of 31,213 pairs, others out of 50,000, and even some ‘samples’ leaked out that were numbered 00000 out of 00000. However, the originals weren’t numbered at all, so a look at this OG pair will come sans confusion. Check out this piece of Air Jordan history below and if you want to add these to your vintage stash, hit up the auction from envyusek on eBay.
