What We Originally Reported on July 7, 2020
If the latest reports are true, fans can expect a brand new colorway of the beloved Air Jordan 1 High to hit shelves this fall.
According to the sneaker leak accounts @zSneakerheadz and @DJFolk, the “Dark Mocha” iteration of NBA icon Michael Jordan’s first signature basketball sneaker is slated to launch on Nov. 21. Given its distant release date, early images of the shoe have yet to be revealed but the aforementioned account has provided a mock-up photo of what can be expected.
The shoe is reported to have a sail-colored leather upper that’s contrasted by black accents on the mudguard, eye stay and Swoosh branding on the sides, while dark brown accents cover the heel counter, collar and tongue tag. Completing the look is a sail midsole and a black outsole.
Although the release information for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Dark Mocha” hasn’t been announced by the brand, it reportedly will be available on the SNKRS app and at select Jordan Brand retailers when it drops on Nov. 21. The shoes are expected to come with a $170 price tag.
The Air Jordan 1 silhouette was designed by industry veteran Peter Moore in 1985, a look that caused a lot of commotion during its debut as the NBA banned MJ from wearing it because the original black and red colorway violated the league’s uniform policy. Wearing them resulted in a $5,000 fine from the league.
In related Air Jordan 1 news, the upcoming “Smoke Grey” colorway is releasing in men’s and big kids’ sizes on July 11 for $170 and $130, respectively.
