Iconic, timeless, perfect: those are just some of the adjectives used to describe the the beloved Air Jordan 1. A staple silhouette in countless rotations, MJ’s first signature Swooshed sneaker remains at the forefront of sneaker culture, nearly 35 years on since its debut.
2018 has been a big year, with retro AJ1s dropping on the regular. Revitalising the ‘Black Toe’ colour-blocking template, last weekend’s ‘Pine Green’ and ‘Court Purple’ drops reaffirmed the silhouette’s everlasting charm, just like the ‘Best Hand in the Game’ pack did back in May.
Many Ls were taken (one by yours truly), but those who managed to cop were quick to take to IG to flex their LPUs on foot. Whether it was the mean greens or the pearly purples, sneakerheads came through with plenty of 1 love.
