Jordan Brand is blessing its fans with a barrage of retro releases this Fall, and to cap off the last full week of September, it’s slated to deliver the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Prototype.” These lifestyle-focused kicks are influenced by the design ethos of actual prototypes and as a result bears various accenting hues and cutting room floor-inspired elements.

Grayscale hues are the most dominant on this iteration, the strongest being a black tone that drapes the Swooshes, tongues, laces and the lower heel overlays. Quarter panels and toe boxes are submerged in white while the overlays near the throat and around the toes are dialed to a lighter silver. Ankle flaps and collars color-block with various shadings of blue while pops of orange touch the tongue branding and exposed stitchings above the Swooshes. To further pronounce its prototype look, perforations appear on the collars to essentially mark where you would cut if you so chose to flip these into a low top. Bottom sections split between clean white midsoles and black treading.

If interested, SNKRS and select retailers like Sneaker Politics are dropping these for $170 USD.
