Not all of the Air Jordan 1 Low styles that release this year will be of the "OG" persuasion with the Nike Air branding and all.
Case in point is this release, which has a straightforward "Blackout" look for the low version of MJ's first Nike sneaker. There have definitely been all-black Air Jordan 1 Low pairs in the past, but this sneaker is different from those in its more no-frills leather approach. It's also got the special 30th anniversary insole, shown in the images below. As this shoe doesn't have "Nike Air" on the tongue, it's safe to say that it's not a remastered release, which is slightly confusing given how Jordan Brand originally promised that the program would cast a wide net over retro releases.
Sole Collector will provide Jordan release date updates on the Air Jordan 1 Low "Blackout" and other upcoming pairs.
