One of the most iconic OG colorways is hitting the Air Jordan 1 for a womens-exclusive release coming this August.
Being revived is the “Black Toe” featuring “OG Black” paneling surrounding the toebox and leading up to the laceguards. As usual, the rear end of the sneaker is graced with a red heel and collar guard contrasting with the black sock liner and Swoosh logo. What makes this release unique, however, is a remix in materials used for its construction. Retaining the usual black and white leather panels making up the front half of the sneaker, the red areas are instead replaced with a textile material giving off a nice satin sheen, holding the Air Jordan logo which itself comes in the form of a black metal badge. The sock liner has also been revamped with a silky fabric for a closer, more form-hugging fit. Of course, it wouldn’t be a “Black Toe” without the clean white midsole and red outsole to tie the look together.
For Air Jordan 1 fans out there hoping to grab a pair of these remixed “Black Toe,” they’ll be available August 17 for a price of $160 USD over at Nike’s online store.
Elsewhere in sneakers, Nike’s Air Max 1 “Sketch to Shelf” and “Schematic” will hit US retailers next week.
