Earlier this year, we witnessed Jordan Brand bring back the Air Jordan 1 Low OG by way of a Chinese New Year-themed makeup, but to generate more energy behind the model, the team has decided to further along its output through a retro launch of its classic “Neutral Grey” iteration — a colorway that last released to the public back in March 2015.
Both the color palette and the materials of this angelic offering follow the recently revived Air Jordan 1 Hi ‘85 “Neutral Grey” that dropped in early February 2021. Smooth leathers that compose the upper half are flooded with a bright white, and balanced out with titular Swoosh logos that are engineered with buttery suedes. Matte grey finishes also take a seat at the table here as they coat the more favored Nike Air logos that rest on the tongues as well as the ball-and-wings insignias that cling to the heels.
Bottom pieces stick to the 1985 design cues by arriving with angelic midsoles and treading that is smothered with a “Neutral Grey” surface.
An official release date has yet to be confirmed by Nike, but it’s likely that these will be dropping sometime during SS21 for $110 USD.
Elsewhere in sneaker news, first images of the Travis Scott x fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High collaboration have surfaced.
