Well, ladies and gentleman, it looks like we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that the shoe won’t be releasing online. Only physical retailers with the exlusives (like 21 Mercer) are going to have them. The good news is that you won’t have to camp our crazy like the Galaxy Foamposites because they are running a raffle system. If you’re lucky enough to be in the NYC area, you can pick up a ticket today until 5pm. Good luck!
As we mentioned with the Stingray Air Jordan 1s, 2015 represents 30 years since the very first Air Jordan 1 was introduced to the world. After that, the rest was history.
Being that 30 is a significant amount of time, we are sure that Jordan Brand will go crazy with the Air Jordan 1 model and we’re not mad at that.
Can you believe that it’s been 30 years since Michael Jordan laced up the original Air Jordan 1? That said, you can expect Team Jumpman to have a fresh set of Air Jordan 1 releases this year.
One of the first pairs is what many are calling the “Pinnacle.” Being that the All Star game is in NYC and that Jay-Z reminded everyone that it was the birth place of Michael Jordan, there is a strong chance that we will see these drop around All Star Weekend. Let’s get to the shoe.
The first month of 2015 is pretty much in the books and we saw some definite heat. A few dope Jordans that dropped were the Air Jordan 4 “Columbia” (or “Legend Blue”) the Air Jordan 1 “BHM” and the Air Jordan 7 “French Blue” among others. Plenty of people took to Instagram, Tumblr and even their personal blogs to show off their kicks.
I bought a pair of Js (metallic 5s) on August 20th of 2011. This was when the sneaker hype was just starting to bubble. It was so early on in the sneaker resurgence that I literally walked in the store at noon (it opened at 10am) and copped a size 10.5 like it was no big deal. That would never happen today – especially not for a dope OG colorway like that and definitely not for a 10.5.
