3 Throne-Worthy Upcoming Air Jordan 1s We're Looking Forward To
We're coming up on the busiest time of the year for releases and it seems like Jordan Brand is goin hard with Throne-Worthy releases, despite the supply challenges that have delayed so many drops this year. Here's a handful of Air Jordan 1s we're looking forward to.
A gold foil-like upper with engravings take this version of the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT to a whole new level. Along with the gold upper that harkens back to the lasering era of Nike's legacy, a metallic blue Swoosh contrasts the upper. Finishing off the details of this upcoming release are gold Jumpman logos on each tongue and blue "Zoom" branding. RepGod has shared these photos but no exact release date has been set, although the Gold Engraved Air Jordan 1Zoom CMFT is expected to release before the end of the year.
The Air Jordan 1 KO might be the unappreciated step-child of the original Air Jordan 1 family but time has healed much of the hate that this shoe has received over the years. While back in the day you might have been able to pick up a pair on a discount rack for a fraction of the retail price, nowadays every colorway sells for above retail on site like StockX. The "Storm Blue" Air Jordan 1 KO adds a new twist to the classic "Chicago" colorway with blue replacing the red on the collar and mudguard on the toe. Look for these to release on September 29th for $140.
The trend of using recycled materials to give sneakers a more vintage look continues with this upcoming Air Jordan 1 Low. Releasing soon at size? and other retailers, the AJ1 Low "Crater" uses recycled materials throughout the upper for a "DIY" vibe with a multicolor Swoosh and exaggerated accent stitching wrapping around the heel. Nike's "Regrind" recycling program not only uses a portion of recycled materials that further push the brand's eco-friendly initiatives, but it gives the Jordan 1 a unique semi-translucent speckled outsole and midsole.
