UPDATE: It's back for the first time ever! This isn't a 2005 retro we're looking at. It's not even a 1995 retro. This legendary Air Jordan 1 High in 'White/Metallic Navy' dates way back to the '80s and hasn't been seen since. We got got word of a June 4 release date when the below images surfaced, but these Nike shots are making the release feel a whole lot more real. If you're looking to pick up, stay glued to Nike online on the aforementioned drop date.
Long live the Air Jordan 1 High – an iconic silhouette that launched an empire. What we have here is a reboot of the OG 'Metallic Navy' colourway from '85. The sneaker stays true to its inherited genetic make-up with a classic white leather build, Metallic Navy detailing, Nike Air on the tongue and iconic Air Jordan 'Wings' stamped on the ankle. (Is anyone else feeling an R2-D2 vibe?) These join their low-top equivalent, the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG 'Metallic Navy', that dropped back in March.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG in Metallic Navy will release June 4 through Nike.com and select Jordan Brand stockists.
