Official Images of the Air Jordan 1 "Dark Marina Blue"

On December 20, 2021, Jordan Brand officially announced its Spring 2022 Retro Collection, and one of the standouts from the news was the Air Jordan 1 “Dark Marina Blue” colorway — one of the newest iterations to be added to MJ’s first signature shoe arsenal. The makeup has already been previewed by many a sneaker leaker since last Fall, but now Nike has finally released the kicks’ official images. From a presentation standpoint, the shoes mimic the same color-blocking cadence as the Air Jordan 1 “Pollen” that was rolled out in the Fall season of 2021, but of course makes use of its titular hue as the main focus. “Dark Marina Blue” falls onto the smooth leather overlays, Swooshes and ankle flaps, as well as the laces and tongue banners. To offset this tone, Jordan Brand tosses black paint onto the toe boxes, quarter panels, collars and nylon tongues. Branding is visible via the traditional ball-and-wings insignias and Nike Air tongue hits, the former of which is coated in black while th

Michael Jordan’s PE Air Jordan 1s From 1985 Are Up for Sale

It’s not every day that an original Air Jordan 1 from 1985 is available for sale, but it’s even rarer when that shoe was created for Michael Jordan himself. That’s exactly what happened today when longtime eBay seller and sneaker collector Patrick Ryan relinquished his original player sample Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” from 1985 in deadstock condition to sell on the e-commerce platform. This pair was initially created for MJ to wear during the 1985-86 NBA season, but he never got a chance to lace them up after breaking his foot in October 1985. When MJ was ready to hit the court again that season, Nike created a custom version of the shoe for him that featured an additional ankle strap for support. The listed shoe comes in Jordan’s famous mismatched sizes with the left shoe in a size 13 and the right pair in a size 13.5. In addition, the right shoe’s ankle collar has also been autographed by MJ. This listing was created in conjunction with eBay’s new 3D true view technology, which allows sh

This Air Jordan 1 Low Looks More Like A Toy Than A Sneaker

Though it may not exactly feel like it, warmer weather is just around the corner. And once the temperature finally gets above 50 degrees, Jordan Brand will be more than prepared, as they’ve revealed a handful of Air Jordan 1 Lows in the month of January alone. For the first day of February — and Lunar New Year — yet another colorway has stepped onto the stage, this pair flaunting what looks like a toy-inspired make-up. To compare the shoe to a doll would be most accurate, its counter and forefoot panel stitched similar to one handmade. Between, a textile that wouldn’t be out of place on a Raggedy Ann outfits the Swoosh and collar, wrapping both in a nepped, purple-colored fabric. White leathers and matching midsoles/tongues, then, build out the rest of the upper, balancing out the aforementioned as well as the letter charm dubrae.
