Having originally released exclusively in Japan back in 2001. The Air Jordan 1 OG High “Japan” has been confirmed to return this summer. And this time it will be available worldwide.
When the public got wind of this release at the start of the year. It was met with a mixed reception, as although the Air Jordan 1 is more popular this year than it has been for a while.
This colorway strays quite far away from the norm for a Jordan model.
With that being said, many sneakerheads will remember the original release of the Air Jordan 1 High Japan. That now sells on the secondary market for over $2000. And are therefore very likely to jump at the chance to get the sneaker for retail.
The Air Jordan 1 OG High “Japan” will come in grey nubuck and metallic silver leather upper, just like the original. But has a few details that sets it apart from its 2001 release.
One of the most obvious changes in the wings logo that will come in silver, rather than gold. And the leather tongue will feature a Nike Air tag instead of the Jumpman that featured on the classic “Japan” edition.
Confirmed to release on July the 25th, the Air Jordan 1 OG High “Japan” will be priced at $170. Although there were only 2001 pairs of the original edition, it is expected that this release won’t be limited, and will be available via Nike’s SNKRS app at 8:00 am local time.
