Air Jordan Retro 1 High Royal

Release Date 4/01/2017

Get ready Jordan fans, this weekend brings us another Air Jordan release! For this weekends release, Jordan brand is bringing out the Air Jordan Retro 1 High Royal, which made its first debut way back in 1985.

The Air Jordan 1 is no stranger to off-the-court athletes. Probably one of the most iconic silhouettes from the Jordan era, it has been a part of not only basketball culture, but skateboarding and BMX culture as well.

Most notably is when Nike SB and Jordan brand teamed up back in 2014 to create the “Lance Mountain” Air Jordan 1. Lance Mountain, for those of you who don’t know, was a professional skateboard rider for the famous Bones Brigade. Back in the 80’s, he was known to skate in Air Jordan 1’s due to the extra protection they offered.

Went a little off topic for a bit, but these history lessons never hurt. Back to the J’s!

Nike / Jordan brand has been going hard this month with the recent releases of the retro and new Air Max models. We can see why the brand is still a force to be reckoned with, but that is not all Nike / Jordan has to offer…. Don’t forget about the upcoming Jordan 4 x Kaws coming out on the 31st of this month. I think it’s safe to say that Nike / Jordan brand won’t be going anywhere in the near future.

If you’re feeling the Royal Retro keep your eyes on the SNKRS app!
