Boasting a clean white leather base with black overlays, the colourway earns its evocative moniker thanks to the ‘Dark Mocha’ shade that hits the soft nubuck leather on the heels and ankle straps.
An OG rendition of Michael Jordan’s first of many signature silhouettes, this AJ1 draws close parallels with Travis Scott’s elusive collab that first released in early 2019, but should be a slightly easier cop than that high-profile offering. A faithful re-creation of the hardwood game-changer, this ‘Dark Mocha’ version is built with smooth nubuck and leather, and also features neat vintage touches such as the ‘Nike Air’ branding on the tongue.
The Air Jordan 1 stands proudly as one of the most recognisable sneaker models on the planet. First hitting the scene way back in 1985, the silhouette gradually evolved to become just as potent off the court as it was on it, and continues to feed the needs of sneakerheads over 35 years after its initial release.
