Jordan Brand has every intention of producing its popular Air Jordan 1 model in high volumes this year, and one variation that is expected to receive a generous amount of makeovers is the Air Jordan 1 Low OG. It’s been confirmed that the silhouette will be dropping in a UNC-inspired colorway and in collaborative form with Travis Scott, but one more iteration has just been added to its 2022 arsenal: the “Bleached Coral” makeup.
Given that this forthcoming offering has a “Black Toe” arrangement and somewhat of a dusty pink accent, the shoe certainly evokes memories of the Air Jordan 1 High “Rust Pink” released for Art Basel in 2017. This offering clearly differentiates itself as it’s a low top but it also bears changes in the material that allow it to stand on its own. Toe boxes and heel overlays swap out the usual leather builds for “Bleached Coral” suede while the overlays around the toe box come prepared with solid black cracked leather. Sitting adjacent to this comes angelic quarter panels and solid black Swooshes that arrive with the customary smooth leather.
Early reports have these dropping on June 17, but Nike has yet to confirm this.
In other sneaker-related news, early photos of the Air Jordan 6 “Georgetown” have recently emerged.
