Yesterday Nigel Sylvester showcased a first look at his upcoming Air Jordan 1. With a quick turnaround today, Jordan Brand shares official photos of the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Hi OG NRG.

Taking inspiration from Sylvester’s love for BMX riding, you’ll find the silhouette to display heavy distressing to exemplify the challenge of landing the perfect tailwhip. Sail, white and varsity red are seen throughout the sneaker while its medial Swoosh incorporates reflective material; an ode to bike riding at night. Additional details include “Jordan Biking Co., Est. 2017” on its inner collar plus pre-made scuff marks, a mini Swoosh on the lateral toe box and a deconstructed logo and double-debossed WINGS on each lateral side.

The Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 Hi OG NRG is expected to arrive on September 1 at select Jordan Brand stockists. Stay tuned for additional launch details and let us know your thoughts. In related news, you can check out the Air Jordan 1 commemorating Michael Jordan’s first Sports Illustrated cover.
