Release Date: Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX 'Sail'Release: 1 December 2021
News on this release was originally published October 20, 2021.
Update December 3: The Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX will release via Nike SNKRS and select Jordan Brand stockists on December 16.
We first caught wind of the Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX way back in April, with IRL imagery releasing in September. Three colourways have been rumoured to hit shelves and it looks like the ‘Light Bone’ iteration has been locked in for December. The darker-hued ‘Black Grey’ will drop November 23.
The classic AJ1 shape that we know and love has remained relatively unchanged however the materials have been given a complete overhaul. The whole upper has been lined with a GORE-TEX membrane, covered with suede and rip-stop fabrics. Tasteful colour-blocking has been utilised on the upper, with ‘Light Bone’ and ‘Collegiate Grey’ dominating alongside subtle black and ‘Sail’ hits. Interestingly, the outsole goes for a two-tone look utilising a semi-translucent grey throughout.
The Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX is ‘Guaranteed to Keep You Dry’ and will arrive at Jordan Brand retailers and SNKRS on December 1. Stack your chips, they’ll retail for $200.
