On-Foot Look: The Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1
Marcus Jordan may not be happy about Trophy Room’s commemorative Air Jordan 1 collaboration being leaked, but that hasn’t stopped more detailed shots from coming through. The latest pictorial to come our way shows off the pair on foot, and gives us a closer look at some new details, including ‘Rumour has it’ lining print and two sets of laces (black and red).
Revealed earlier this month, the colourway is inspired by none other than the famed ‘Chicago’ Air Jordan 1, which debuted in 1985. A familiar combination of white, ‘Varsity Red’, and black dominates the sneaker, with a bit of ‘Sail’ thrown into the mix for a subtle change-up. However, it’s the luxurious details that truly set this AJ1 apart. The white leather upper is complemented with glittery red overlays, as the traditional ‘Nike Air’ tongues, black Swooshes, and ankle collar return. Instead of the traditional red stitching on the upper, Trophy Room have used white, resulting in a more distinct outline to the panels. The highlight of the collaboration undoubtedly comes on the lateral heel, where you’ll find Michael Jordan’s signature printed in black, making this a potential collector’s item. Down below, there’s a translucent outsole revealing red and blue stars, with ‘Trophy Room’ patched on the insoles.
With stock numbers recently revealed, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG looks like it will be limited to just 12,000 pairs.
The Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG was originally rumoured for release in November, but Marcus Jordan quickly dispelled those rumours via Twitter. The latest theory is that they’ll drop on February 10, the date of Michael Jordan’s first NBA All-Star Game back in 1985. Confirmation soon, hopefully!
