Original Story (October 21, 2019): Continuing to craft new takes on the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, Jordan Brand is now prepping a new take on the popular “Black/Orange” color scheme. The “Black/Orange” AJ1 look, the upcoming colorway once again pays homage to Michael Jordan’s iconic dunk during a 1985 overseas exhibition game that left the backboard in pieces.
The “Black/Orange” is centered around a wrinkled patent leather construction with a black base accented by orange overlays and perforated toe boxes. Branding comes in the form of contrast midfoot Swooshes, Wing motifs at the ankle, “Nike Air” tongue tags and printed insoles. Rounding up the design of the shoe is a vintage-tinged off white midsole paired with a black rubber outsole.
Priced at $160 USD, the Air Jordan 1 “Black/Orange” is set to release on nike.com and select Jordan Brand retailers October 26.
