The long-rumored return of the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” looks to be coming to fruition. Late last year, it was rumored that the sneaker would finally be getting a retro release, albeit with the remixed aesthetic of the Reimagined series that began with the “Patent Bred” in 2021.
The Reimagined series is most known for the aged aesthetic of the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” and the upcoming Air Jordan 3 “White Cement,” however the collection is actually about recontextualizing some of His Airness’ most legendary releases and providing new love for an old look. The upcoming Air Jordan 1 “Royal Reimagined” will look to eschew the classic leather construction for a new suede build but with color blocking faithful to the original release.
The Air Jordan 1 “Royal Reimagined” is expected to release Novemeber 4, 2023 on SNKRS for $180. Stay tuned to SoleSavy for more updates.
