Arguably, Michael Jordan was the man who paved the way for the style of basketball we know today. Throughout his passionate career, the energetic MJ overcame obstacles and created surprises with challenge after challenge. Among other things, he reiterated that basketball has a close relationship with style, the youth counterculture and the creative potential of the sport.
Like Jordan, the first pair of sneakers with his name appeared and caused a craze, carrying Jordan’s courage. The red-and-black colorway violates the basketball federation’s uniform laws, and every time a player uses the shoe to enter the court, he will be issued a severe warning and a $5,000 fine. It was with this charismatic courage that the legendary Air Jordan 1 was born.
Jordan Brand surprised fans with a collection of retro shoes this fall, and in the last week of September, the brand is expected to release a pair of the Air Jordan 1 Retro. High OG’s name is “Prototype”. These lifestyle-focused versions are inspired by the spirit of actual prototyping, so they come in a variety of striking colors. Let’s explore these unique sneakers with Storepc.
Grey is the predominant color in this version, highlighted by the black accents that cover the entire Swooshes logo, tongue, laces and heel overlay. Additionally, the cheekbones and toe box are toned down to white, while the coating near the collar and around the toe box is a lighter silver.
The ankle and collar are in shades of blue, and the orange patch covers the entire tongue tab and exposed stitching above the Swooshes logo. Also, a very special detail is that if you choose to customize them for a low cut version, there will be perforations in the collar to mark where you will be cutting. Finally, the base unit below is split into a clean white midsole and black outsole.
If you’re interested in this version of the sneaker, select retailers like SNKRS and Sneaker Politics will have them for $170.
