You might be aware that the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Hyper Royal” recently made a comeback on July 7 and was available at a retail price of $160. It seems that another iteration of the model sporting a Royal Blue color scheme has popped up and may or not join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. This iteration is actually drawing inspiration from another recent Air Jordan 1 colorway, the “Homage To Home” from May. In case you do not recall, the left and right “Homage To Home” shoes were laterally split into the color blocking and scheme of the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” and “Chicago.”
The Air Jordan 1 colorway featured here is being referred as “Board Of Directors” and as you can see, its color blocking and color scheme follows the same theme as the “Homage To Home.” This time though, it combines two other classic Air Jordan 1 colorways, namely the OG “Game Royal” and “Royal” iterations. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Royal” actually made its comeback in Spring last year on April Fool’s Day, i.e. April 1st, 2017, and retailed for $160. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Game Royal” returned this year on March 24th, 2018 and retailed at the same price of $160.
At first glance, the Air Jordan 1 colorway seen above may appear to be kind of mismatched, but as mentioned, that is a part of the theme. The outer halves of each shoe is dressed up in the color blocking and scheme of the Air Jordan 1 “Royal,” while the inner halves sport the color blocking and scheme of the Air Jordan 1 “Game Royal.” The reason this iteration is being referred to as “Board Of Governors” is likely because of the “B.O.G.” printed on one of the heel tabs. Currently, this pair is in possession of Quentin Richardson of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The above suggests that this “Homage To Home”-inspired Air Jordan 1 colorway might be a Player Exclusive. Nonetheless, keep checking back to SneakersDog for more updates about this and other Air Jordan releases 2018.
