For the longest time, the Air Jordan 1 High has been one of the most revered shoes in the sneaker community. Being one of the pioneer sneakers in the shoe game, it has been a steady contender for the best sneakers every year.
But as we near the last quarter of the year, the Air Jordan brand has yet to release some notable Air Jordan 1 Highs to wrap up 2021. Countless sneakerheads await and will surely battle it out once these pairs become available.
On that note, here are some notable high-top Air Jordan 1s that sneaker enthusiasts must watch for before the year ends.
Air Jordan 1 High OG “Atmosphere”
This offering of the Air Jordan 1 High will come in atmosphere, white, laser pink, and obsidian silhouettes. Its most notable aspect is the implementation of both the patent leather and the usual leather material for its upper. The patent leather goes through the rear part of the pair, while the medial and forefoot are made with the latter material.
It is said that the “Atmosphere” is inspired by Michael Jordan’s love for chewing gum.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Atmosphere” is set to be released exclusively in women’s sizes on December 22 for US$170.
Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bordeaux”
At first glance, this silhouette of the Air Jordan 1 High has the same attributes as the “Co.Jp” iteration due to its color blocking and the familiar metallic silver Swoosh.
The “Bordeaux” will be dressed in a combination of white and bordeaux color blocking throughout the pairs. This pair is one of the numerous Air Jordan selections that will come in the Bordeaux silhouette.
This new colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High will be available on November 20 for US$170.
A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 1 High OG
The Atlanta-based store collaborated with the Air Jordan Brand to release the A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 3. The pair became an instant hit and were sold out immediately.
This time, the new collaboration is ready to take on new heights with the upcoming release of the A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 1 High OG. The pair comes in sail suede uppers, along with a reptilian-design burgundy Swoosh and ankle collars.
No official date of release has been revealed. However, just like the others, the A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 1 High OG is priced at US$170.
Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred Patent”
When it comes to Air Jordan pairs, news about a “Bred” colorway release is always music to the ears. After all, the black and red color blocking is arguably the most iconic silhouette in the rich history of sneakers, especially when it comes to Air Jordan 1 High.
The good news is the “Bred” silhouette of the historic Air Jordan 1 High will be returning this year. However, this iteration of the Air Jordan 1 High OG will receive a major tweak.
Instead of the usual premium leather similar to the 2016 release and earlier iterations, this Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred” is infused with patent leather. The Air Jordan brand has been pushing this material in the past few releases of the Air Jordan 1 High after getting popularized by the Air Jordan 11.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred Patent” is set for release on October 23 with a US$170 price tag.
Air Jordan 1 High OG “Hand Crafted”
For sneakerheads who love multi-colored silhouettes, this could be the best pair to chase. Unlike other multi-colored inspirations, such as the “What The” silhouettes, this iteration has the same color blocking on both pairs of the shoe.
As far as the materials go, the Air Jordan brand opted to go with nubuck materials instead of the traditional leather materials. However, this option has more pros than cons, since the hand-crafted inspiration could be brought into the spotlight by a nubuck than a leather.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Hand Crafted” is set for release on December 19. Pairs will be available for US$170.
