The trendy Air Jordan 1 stays hot with this upcoming collection of four new colorways inspired by Michael Jordan’s many accolades on the court. But depending on where you live, you might not be able to get your favorite color of the bunch.
Dubbed the “Best Hand in the Game” collection, the four new colorways of Jordan’s first signature shoe will each release in specific regions across the globe. The blue and green accented versions will be available in North America on May 1, while the yellow and red editions will release only in Europe, also May 1, followed by Asia on May 3. China is reportedly receiving the red and green colorways during the Asian market release date.
Featuring the same color block and blend of white and black leather with soft nubuck for the accent color, each version is inspired by Jordan’s career. Playing into the “Best Hand in the Game” concept, the insoles feature special card graphics listing their themes.
