Despite several December Jordan releases getting postponed until the first half of 2022, long-anticipated styles like the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Archaeo Brown” are still on schedule to drop before the year ends. Recently, official images of the sneakers have surfaced, revealing a number of reflective panels around the heel.
First teased mid-summer, the multi-colored pair revels in tried-and-proven tones appropriate of autumn. Akin to ever-popular “Mocha”-accented Air Jordan 1s, the upcoming shoes indulge in a brown suede around the forefoot and at the ankle flaps; “Wings” insignias on the latter components follow suit, but boast a patch-like construction. Hits of rich green, dark purple and vibrant coral leave their mark throughout the retro’s upper, but arguably all of them play supporting roles to the silver sideways-“y” found around the heel and the toe box’s lining. These strips feature a reflective finish that enables the Jordan 1 to make a statement even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Lastly. the mismatched shoe box nods to the craftsmanship of the pair, accomplished by its use of contrast stitching and quilted inner-lining.
Enjoy official images of the sneakers here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch on December 18th.
