Compared to the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Turbo Green” of 2019, given the similar faded effect, the Jordan 1 Retro High OG Hyper Royal, is built of an upper with a white leather base covered with layers of blue suede with an “aged” aesthetic, which colors the toe, the heel, the superior eyelet coverage panels and the eyelet area.
A third color is added to these two, a light smoke grey that decorates the Swoosh, the padded collar and the tread. The Wings logo is white on the side and the tongue tag is proposed in blue in its shorter version, an accomplice detail of the sneaker’s irresistible vintage look.
As usual, this Jordan also stands out not only for its unique style but also for its technical characteristics, such as the AJ1 rubber sole with Nike Air cushioning encapsulated in the heel. The sneaker, released by Nike in April 2021, immediately received positive feedback on social media, so much so that this colorway surpassed the “University Blue”, released in March of the same year in terms of popularity.
