Jordan Brand officially revealed its Summer 2021 retro collection at the top of the month, and one of the standout pieces was the Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple.” A women’s-exclusive style, the “Court Purple” is almost identical to the OG Air Jordan 1 “Metallic Purple” from 1985, and brings classic Air Jordan flair into a new generation.
Though official images popped up in February, we’ve now been given our best look yet at the “Court Purple” thanks to sneaker leaker repgod888. The design is straightforward: uppers are constructed of premium tumbled white leather, with high-gloss metallic purple accents appearing on the Swooshes and collars. Further branding is added via a purple ball-and-wings logo on the lateral collar flap and a purple Nike Air tag on the white nylon tongue. White laces tie the top half together, and white midsoles work with purple insoles and outsoles to complete the look.
Check out detailed off and on-foot shots of the Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple” below, and expect it to release on June 3 for $170 USD. Although it is indeed a women’s model, it’ll be available in an extended size run so men will be able to wear it as well.
