When it comes to Jordans, and more specifically the Air Jordan 1, sneakerheads can be pretty particular about the colors and details of the shoe. Rightfully so in some cases. After all, the memories tied to Michael Jordan’s first year in the NBA, and the kicks he wore, are significant to sports fans. While most of us hold the Chicago Bulls' colors and his North Carolina Tar Heels' blue hues in high regard, the true beauty of the Air Jordan 1 is how the design can come to life with the introduction of new colorways. The upcoming “Heirloom” Jordan 1 is the perfect example of how the design outlives its on-court days.
Using the popular “Vachetta Tan” color and a new mix of materials, the “Heirloom” AJ1 has been getting rave reviews as begins to land at retailers for its September 23rd release date. While the colorway might not be traditional, the contrast between the tan leather and the black denim underlays is about as good as it gets. The iconic “Wings” logo embossed on the ankle gives a subtle nod to the original Jordan logo that helped launch the legendary sneaker line. The simple two-color approach on the “Heirloom” Air Jordan 1 makes it a perfect option for wearing or displaying in your Sneaker Throne.
