Jordan Brand’s increased emphasis toward the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG this year has been well documented. From the highly acclaimed Bred Toe colorway, to the recently releases collaboration designed by Nigel Sylvester, the sneaker that helped start it all has not disappointed over the last number of months. Keeping that noticeable uptick rolling, the Jumpman has a “Court Purple” variety slated to hit retailers later this month. Sporting a regal purple and black color combination, it features the same color blocking as the aforementioned Bred Toe, with a colorful toebox and black panelling surrounding it for contrast. With other offerings the likes of the “Rookie Of The Year” and the “Sports Illustrated” colors on the horizon, it doesn’t appear that the Jordan Brand has any plans of slowing down production for the 1 any time soon.
With everything from alternate color blocking on models like the “Bred Toes” to pre-distressed pairs like Nigel Sylvester‘s “Jordan Biking Co” and heavily-branded takes like the “Logo Pack,” there’s truly been an AJ1 for everyone over the past 9 months. Now, one of the most highly anticipated pairs of the year is set to drop as the “Court Purple” Jordan 1s are releasing in both men’s and grade school sizes. Featuring a standard black and white base with rich royal purple accents on the toebox, heel, collar, and outsole, the “Court Purple” provides a look that’s both heratage-style and brand-new at the same time.
Taking on a Bred Toe color blocking, this Air Jordan 1 High is highlighted by a vibrant Court Purple which can be seen on the toe box, ankle, heel, tongue tag, and the rubber outsole. The rest of the leather upper has been done in black and white with finishing details being black Swoosh logos, white Nike Air on the tongue, and a white midsole.Dressed in a Court Purple, Sail and Black color scheme. This Air Jordan 1 features Court Purple on the heel, Nike Air tongue label, toe box and rubber outsole. White covers the side panels and midsole, along with Black overlays, tongues and laces.
