A brand-new luxury edition of the Air Jordan 1 will be launched by Jordan Brand as part of their 2020 holiday lineup. The Air Jordan 1 continues to stun its audience with new colorways. Among its three siblings, it’s still the most famous silhouette within the six-time champion's retro family. This time they have birthed the Air Jordan 1 “Black Gold.”
When the first photos of this black-and-gold, patent-leather pair emerged back in June, some suggested that a similar mid-top makeup that was launched back in 2003, the Air Jordan 1 Mid was immediately brought to mind. This edition holds the same patent-leather uppers and gilded Swooshes and Wings logos in touch. For a little extra dose of luxury pop, however they deviate with golden ankle collars to embellish its heightened collars.
This version of black-patent leather uppers contrasts with the Swooshes, ankle, and Wings emblem with gold patent-leather. Finally, round out the theme with a black-and-gold tongue tag and, black rubber-sole unit. The uppers are made entirely of shiny patent leather. The sneaker’s signature accents are on the forefoot, midfoot and heel, which are dressed in a tuxedo-like tone. However, for a luxurious metallic flair, the shoe's signature gold accents arrive on the ball-and-wings emblem of the Swooshes, collar, and collar flap. The Nike Air tongue tag features an additional touch of gold, while gold contrast stitching on the black midsole completes the look.
The Nike Air Jordan 1 “Black Gold" are set to drop on sale November 30th at select retail stores for $170. Make sure to get online for these fire kicks.
Air Jordan 1’s are coming out right in-time for the holiday season, so we know this comes with colder temperatures. For a sporty winter look, I’d go with the Jumpman Air Fleece Pullover Hoodie. A classically fitting hoodie that matches perfectly with the black-and-gold midsole on the Air Jordan 1. On bottom, I’d suggest the Jumpman Air Fleece Pants. These offer a tapered-cuffed finish on the bottom and Jumpman detailing that coordinate with the black-and-gold accent on the shoes.
