Official photos of the Jordan 1 Royal are finally in. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been four years since we last saw this iconic colorway hit retailers, but if the Banned 1s proved anything, it’s that Jordan Brand can upgrade the retro quality and release Mike’s first silhouette in a completely different shape that’s truer to the actual 1985 release.
Right off the bat, you can notice that the Royal 1s sport that updated tumbled leather throughout while a white insole dons royal ‘Nike Air’ branding to match the tongue tag. A clean white midsole allows for the Black and Varsity Royal accents to perfectly match for a revitalized look of a shoe that’s on nearly everyone’s grail list. It’s not if you plan on grabbing a pair of the Air Jordan 1 Royal, but how. We still don’t know how limited the retro will be when it arrives at retailers on April 1st, 2017 for $160 USD, but stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.
In the meantime, check out more of Nike’s official imagery below and stay up to date on all of the coming Jordan Release Dates. If you can’t wait until next weekend and don’t mind paying a little extra, check for your size right now on eBay and Stadium Goods.
