Air Jordan 1

As you probably already know by now, Jordan Brand will be releasing a new Air Jordan 1 Collection later this Summer that consists of three different colorways. Each one of these Jordan 1s comes with a canvas and leather construction on the upper and is highlighted by oversized Nike lettering on the lateral side panel and repeating text from a Nike copyright disclaimer on the medial side panel. Today we bring you new images of the Guava Ice pair which comes done in a combination of Guava Ice and Sail all throughout the upper. A Sail midsole and Guava Ice outsole round out the look.

Look for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Guava Ice to release on September 1st for a retail price of $160.

Nigel Sylvester will soon be coming out with his very own Air Jordan collab. That’s big time. In a recent interview with air.jordan.com, Nigel explained with this collab means so much to him while also providing insight into his journey and connection with Jordan Brand. He talks about how the collab came to life and also took the time to explain some of the design details of the shoe.

Russ Bengtson says, “As long as I’ve known Nigel, since he was a teenager riding the Brooklyn Banks, he’s used his bike to take him beyond BMX. He became a Nike athlete 13 years ago through the 6.0 program, but even then he rode in Air Jordan 1s as a way to stand out from the crowd.

Now, with an Air Jordan 1 inspired by him, Nigel pays homage to those who came before him and gives something to those who will follow after. The Air Jordan 1 Hi OG NRG is a hand-distressed, pre-aged flip of the original red, black and white that’s re-imagined for a different journey.”

Let’s start out with your first memories of the Jordan 1.

I saw dudes in my ‘hood rock them. I used to watch Jordan highlights on YouTube before riding, too.

What was the first pair of Jordan 1s you actually got?

It was the retro Breds. Immediately, I was like, “I’m going to ride my bike in these kicks.”

A lot of people would change into Jordans after they rode. They’d go riding in something else and then change into Jordans afterward.

I connected with the Jordan 1 so much, the clean and simple silhouette. It felt good on my pedal. I was like, what if I just rode in these Jordans? What would people say?
