In addition to being Michael Jordan's first ever signature shoe, the Air Jordan 1 has also been the most fertile canvas for creation of all Air Jordan models, hosting hundreds of different colorways and materials since its 1985 debut. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Phantom" adds to the legacy of the legendary silhouette with a color combination and material makeup that nods to history while producing something completely original.
The upper combines sail colored premium smooth leather with a wrinkle-textured leather accented by red and black contrast stitching for a traditional Jordan color palette. Red felt-like on the collar and lining stands out against the brightness of the leather, as does the black Jordan Wings logo on the ankle. The sail leather swoosh is outlined in red, while a tonal tongue with black zig-zag stitching, tonal laces and Nike Air tongue tag round out the details. A sail sole unit completes the design of this soon to be classic colorway.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Phantom" releases on Saturday, March 30th @ 10:00am, and will only be available via in-store raffle at South St. in Philadelphia, and FCFS in East Cleveland, OH and North Randall, OH.
