Take A Look At The Exclusive Satin Air Jordan 1
In 1984, the NBA banned Michael Jordan’s trendsetting black and red Air Jordan 1s, deeming the stylish kicks violated the league’s uniform codes. Recently, the brand decided to celebrate the pivotal moment in basketball history, surprising sneaker heads with a pop-up shop in New York City where a special Satin edition of the sneaker was sold.
Ridiculously limited, with only 501 pairs being sold, the silhouette remained trued to its original aesthetic with details including the classic Nike Air tongue branding and a stitched Wings logo on an updated satin upper. Premium add-ons like gold aglets and a white quilted leather insole offer an upgraded look, too. The kicks went for $175 during its Oct. 18 release, but clearly, the resale asking price has soared thanks to its exclusiveness.
