Nike Japan to Re-Release the Air Jordan 1 in "Metallic Silver"
Originally a part of the 2001 “Japan Addition” pack.
As part of Jordan Brand‘s Fall 2020 retro collection, Nike Japan’s Air Jordan 1 in “Metallic Silver” is set to release later this week. Having originally launched back in 2001 as part of the “Japan Addition” capsule, the pack came along with three other colorways – “Black,” “Midnight Navy” and “White/Midnight Navy” – which were limited to 3,000 pairs each, while the silver iteration received fewer units.
The highly anticipated sneaker‘s upper features a monochromatic look constructed out of leather material throughout. The quarter panels, eyestays, mudguard and collar are made out of soft gray nubuck, while the tongue arrives in gray tumbled leather fabric. Rounding out the shoe’s design is the jeweled ball-and-wings logo on the lateral collar flap, and the “1 of 2020” text on the inside of the tongue.
The Air Jordan 1 CO.JP “Metallic Silver” retails for ￥26,400 (approximately $246 USD), which will drop via Nike SNKRS Japan on July 25. For more of the Swoosh brand, check out the upcoming sacai x Nike VaporWaffle in “Tour Yellow.”
