The Air Jordan 12 Wings will have a follow-up in spirit with this premium pre-aged patina-finished Jordan 1 complete with an homage to the famous Michael Jordan ‘Wings’ poster – you know the poster that most likely hung in your bedroom sometime during and throughout your middle to high school years complete with Mike’s outstretched almost life-sized wingspan.
The Jordan 1 Wings takes a different approach, but is just as premium as the Jordan 12 Wings thanks to a vintage-inspired leather upper complete with black piping, OG Wings branding, and a unique heel and tongue tag featuring the ‘Wings’ silhouette from the 1989 Nike poster. Other premium details include a familiar ‘Wings’ graphic lining that carries over from the Jordan 12, boot laces, and an icy outsole with bold Wings branding. There’s still no Release Date information for the coming Jordan 1 Wings retro, but we’re definitely feeling the different direction Jordan Brand took with this lifestyle take on MJ’s first silhouette. More details to come.
