If you’ve been on any sneaker blog today then you already know the big news of this morning’s surprise launch of a satin-constructed version of the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” at a special pop-up shop in New York City. With only 501 pairs released today, we don’t have to tell you that all the pairs are already gone and your only chance of obtaining one now will be on the resale market. One of our team members was lucky enough to rush over to the 108 Wooster location this morning to pick up a pair, so now we’re here to share some detailed photos of the very special Air Jordan 1.
Inspired by the early Air Jordan warm-up outfits that Michael Jordan wore back in 1985 while promoting the shoe, Jordan Brand crafted this limited edition Air Jordan 1 in the iconic black and red colorway utilizing a satin material for the entire upper. Special details include embroidered “wings” logos on the ankles, a quilted white leather sockliner, and stitching on the inner lining identifying which number out of the 501 pairs you own.
Enjoy this detailed look at the Air Jordan 1 “Satin”, and good luck securing your own pair.
