Jordan Brand has left no stone unturned while combing through Michael Jordan’s history in their pursuit of inspiration for the Air Jordan line, and the latest product of that detailed search is the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “First Class Flight.” Instead of picking a specific memory, outfit, or quote from MJ, the “First Class Flight” opts for a white/yellow colorway equipped with boarding-pass style barcodes and embellishments that anyone who’s traveled by air is sure to be familiar with. The devil’s in the details here, as the large heel barcode’s numbers nod to MJ’s career points/rebounds/assists per game averages and totals. Meanwhile, another barcode on the medial collar offers more general Jordan-related digits and a triangular 23 graphic appears on the medial heel. Jordan’s signature is present on the lateral side’s underlay, and the look is finalized by alternating white/yellow Swooshes — the former on the outside half, the latter on the inside half — plus a yellow midsole for a vibrant contrast with the perforated white leather base. These unique Air Jordan 1s will release this July, so take a first look below, and stay tuned to our Jordan Release Dates page for a specific day of arrival as it’s available.
