Joining the flurry of recent Air Jordan 1 Retro activity is a new colorway coming up echoing the colors from a soon-to-release Air Jordan III. This ‘Joker’ Jordan 1 has an upper that’s half black leather, half purple suede atop a lavender midsole, which eliminates the slight #XX8DaysOfFlight lean from by those Threes. These wouldn’t at first glance appear to be a candidate for OG-style ‘NIKE AIR’ branding, but then again, we wouldn’t have necessarily expected the SVSM edition before images surfaced over the weekend. Stick with Sneaker News for updates including US release information and let us know how these compare to the rest of the pending AJ1s and the ‘other’ Joker.
