The Air Jordan 1 “Skyline” Channels Iconic Michael Jordan Photo

Ian Servantes

The Air Jordan 1 is getting a dazzling new gradient, but it isn’t merely color for color’s sake.

Paying homage to one of Michael Jordan’s earliest iconic photos, the AJ1 “Skyline” borrows its treatment from the background of the image that bore the Jumpman logo. The photoshoot was done to promote the Air Jordan 1 and saw Michael in his flight suit soaring towards the hoop with the Chicago skyline in the background. But it wasn’t until the Air Jordan 3 that Nike began using the Jumpman mark.

Months after the leaks began, we finally have official photos of the Air Jordan 1 “Skyline.” Canvas overlays go from a pinkish-orange to blue and sit atop a white leather base. Branding and laces all appear in black, as does the collar and midsole. Rounding out the specs is a cream midsole that gives the sneaker a slightly aged look.

The Air Jordan 1 “Skyline” will release in Europe and Asia March 18 and North America April 8. Retail is set at a standard $180. Download the DROPS by SoleSavy app to stay abreast on any further developments for this sneaker and more.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
