Next year, the Jordan Brand will go back to where it all started by releasing an Air Jordan Retro 1 run in a few original colorways. One of the more anticipated drops is the Black/Royal colorway, which has been on a somewhat lengthy hiatus since last being released in 2001.

Sneakerheads are particularly excited about this re-release due to the high-cut and Nike Air branding we've spotted in sample photos. Hopefully that will stay consistent by the time the final product ships out.

As of now, the Black/Royal Air Jordan Retro 1 High will land at retail locations for $140 on Saturday, February 16. Expect quantities to be very limited.
