Air Jordan 1 ‘Varsity Red’ Release July 23rd

Haven Neiman

The imitable Air Jordan legacy all started with none other than the Air Jordan 1. Considered to be ‘the one that started it all,’ the Air Jordan 1 Low was introduced to the world towards the end of the legendary Michael Jordan’s notable rookie year with none other than the Chicago Bulls. Introduced alongside the Air Jordan 1 High that same year, when the sneaker was showcased to the public on Jordan’s feet during the game, Michael Jordan was actually wearing a pair of Nike Air Ships, which highly resembled the construction of the Air Jordan 1 (the sneaker wasn’t quite ready for its bold introduction). The Air Jordan 1 was crafted by the iconic sneaker designer Peter Moore and was implemented within a sneaker culture that quickly became redefined with its high-profile collaboration with Michael Jordan.

Michael’s decision to wear a colorful pair of basketball sneakers captured fans worldwide, as bold sneakers were primarily reserved for runners. His choosing to wear these sneakers broke the NBA’s uniform rules, resulting in even more hype for these must-have sneakers. Taking inspiration from the Nike Dunk, the premium sneaker makes a statement with its Nike Swoosh and Jordan Wings logo. While also incorporating Nike Air cushioning for optimal comfort, the sneaker was initially released in colorways that referenced several Chicago Bulls motifs and metallic hues.

The Jordan Brand introduces its latest Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Varsity Red.’ Featured in women’s, preschool, and toddler sizing options, this premium high-top sneaker proudly displays its heritage. Constructed of leather with additional color-blocking leather overlays, the sneaker makes a statement with its corduroy tongue and chenille Swooshes. The woven tongue label paired with the chenille hang tag provides additional detailing. The perforated toe box and encapsulated Nike Air cushioning add optimal comfort and breathability. The herringbone-traction rubber outsole underneath protects the rest of the design.
