The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Best Hand In The Game” collection, consisting of four pairs that feature the classic Jordan 1 Black Toe’s detailing, is set to release on May 5th at Jordan Brand retailers worldwide. Each of the four pairs in the collection pays homage to a different set of accomplishments from Michael Jordan’s storied career told through his love of card games.

The “Track Red” colorway nods to the 6 NBA Championships Michael Jordan won with the Bulls, while the six-of-a-kind card graphic on the insole reminds us just how impossible that feat is. The “Blue Moon” opts for a straight flush hand on the right insole while acknowledging MJ’s fourteen All-Star game appearances and three MVP awards of that occasion. The “Clay Green” edition arrives with a full-house graphic on the insole, metaphorically spelling out his swath of personal accomplishments that include Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, and his Hall Of Fame induction. Finally, the bright and bold “Yellow Ochre” 1s feature a royal flush – the best hand you can have in poker – on the insole, celebrating Jordan’s five MVP awards. All four of these commemorative pairs of Air Jordan 1s are confirmed to release on May 5th for $160 USD on Nike.com and other Jordan Brand stockists; kids sizes have also been confirmed by Jordan Brand. See the detailed in-hand preview below.

The “Blue Moon” colorway is exclusive to the US, the “Clay Green” pair will drop in the US and China, while the “Track Red” drops in Europe, China, and Japan, and “Yellow Ochre” will arrive in Europe and Japan.
