The anti-gravity machines are back for the Air Jordan 1 ‘Black Patent’. MJ’s classic basketball boot has been decked out with shiny shades of black and grey. The simple colour blocking is set off by the high sheen materials, which is toned down ever so slightly by the stark white midsole. Jumpman branding is stamped across the shoe, while the inside of the tongue tag displays the promise of flight – guaranteed to make you run faster and jump higher*.
The Air Jordan 1 High ‘Patent Black’ hasn’t got a set release date just yet, we’ll keep you posted.
