We still have to wait a little while longer for the Air Jordan 1 “Storm Blue” to arrive stateside (the original 1985 lifestyle colorway returns on December 23rd in a full family size run for the U.S.) but for those of you living in Europe, you’ll be treated to the Air Jordan 1 Storm Blue tomorrow, November 1st exclusively in a grade school size run.
There are only a few colorways that haven’t seen an official retro in the Jordan Brand archives, and the Air Jordan 1 Storm Blue is one of them. The Kentucky Wildcats-esque colorway features a simple combination of white and a royal blue known here as “Storm Blue” throughout for a simple takedown of the iconic Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. Classic ‘Nike Air’ branding hits the tongue tag to coincide with the simple yet iconic ‘Wings’ logo on the ankle collar.
While the Air Jordan 1 Storm Blue will play a part in the Jumpman’s Holiday 2016 plans stateside, this is an untraditional rollout that sees grade school sizes dropping first in Europe with more availability to come in the near future. What do you think of this colorway? Check out a better look below and stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.
