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 the latter contrasts with white. Rounding out its design comes all-white midsole pieces and outsoles that are submerged in “Dark Marina Blue.”
Reports have these scheduled to drop on February 16 for $170 USD via Nike and other retailers. Want your pair now? Head over to GOAT to cop yours.
