Much fuss is made over the “Black Cat” Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 4, and for good reason. Both pairs proved ahead of their time, offering toned down takes on two of the most timeless designs in the AJ line. While said silos will always be a favorite, it’s been the Air Jordan 1′s year in many ways. A slew of OG colorways have been well spaced out, releasing in somewhat hard to get fashion and carrying original attributes like Nike Air tagging and a high cut.
Unlike its predecessors, the Air Jordan 1 High doesn’t have many great non-OG colorways. The exception? The Air Jordan 1 “All-Black” Japan Exclusive. Released overseas in 2001, this hard to get pair packed tough, tumbled leather on the blacked out upper, only contrasted by chrome Wings and Jumpman branding. As winter approaches and shoes of the bright or suede variety go into hibernation, here’s a pair you wouldn’t have to put away. Hey Jordan Brand, let’s launch these again and make them available worldwide. Bring ‘em back!
