The Air Jordan 1 “Pollen” is objectively more notable for its resemblance to another — namely, the Wu-Tang Dunks that hit the streets all the way back in 1999. And though it may not feature any of the group’s insignia, the colorway is certainly a well-received placeholder.

Due to release this Fall, the pair comes in a clean, two-toned arrangement that celebrates the Killa Bees themselves. Bright yellows dress throughout the overlays, contrasting against the tumbled grain of the black leathers underneath. Wings insignia, nylon tongues, and cloth linings match the latter, while the brighter tone of the two further accents along the laces, Swoosh, tread, and woven label.

For a better look, see the on-foot images below. A release is currently expected to hit Nike SNKRS and select retailers on August 21st.

In other news, the Air Jordan 4 University Blue is arriving much sooner.
