Description

Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 1 has begun to surface in several summer-ready makeups as of late, one of which is the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Light Smoke Grey.” An appealing jumble of divergent inspirations, the “Light Smoke Grey” melds pieces both classic and new for a fresh — yet inherently familiar — look.

High-cut uppers use traditional tumbled white leather on quarter panels and toeboxes, but switch to a new-age suede on the grey mudguard, eyestays and heel. Although the materials are decidedly divergent, these base tones are somewhat Dior Air Jordan 1-adjacent. Meanwhile, collars and Swooshes are dressed in black suede while the collar flaps use standard red leather. This Frankenstein-ish juxtaposition of a “Bred” collar on top of a white/grey base call to mind images of UNION’s influential 2019 AJ1 collaborations.

All of this suede is seemingly more Nike SB than traditional Air Jordan, and brings a third piece of the AJ1’s lengthy lineage into play: its rich history in the world of skateboarding. White midsoles and black outsoles complete the colorblocking, while additional branded flair is provided by a black ball-and-wings logo on the collar and a black/red Nike Air tongue tag.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Light Smoke Grey” is priced at $170 USD, and has been reported for a July 11 release on Nike SNKRS.
