The Return of 2001’s “Japan” Air Jordan 1 in 2020?
Another Air Jordan 1 for Holiday 2020 has been leaked — and we couldn’t be more excited that it may well be a prospective retro of a turn-of-the-Century classic. Coming straight from the mouth of sneaker-leaker @SHOF, an Air Jordan 1 “Midnight Navy” is on the way for Q4 of 2020 — and it’s listed color blocking is similar to that of a banger from back in 2001, the Air Jordan 1 High Japan. Old heads will know, but for you young cats: If it looks familiar, it should. This was the sneaker that Eric Koston based his debut Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low collaboration on. Of course, it might be an entirely new colorway — but this old tier can’t help but be optimistic about is return. On any level, it would be almost impossible to misfire on the combination of White, Midnight Navy, and Metallic Silver — I can already feel that my wallet is a little lighter.
We’re a mere thirteen months out from the release, so that’s all the info we have for now. Stay tuned for first looks! Until then, take a gander at the gem from 2001 below, and if you’re loving those OG Japans, you can pick up a pair right now from Flight Club
