Ever since the original release of the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” back in , the last time sneakerheads had the opportunity to cop a pair of this sneaker was back in February 2013. Not only that, the tongue tags of every pair had also featured the “Nike Air” branding. At that time, there had also been a sales sample pair of the colorway that had somehow found its way to eBay for auction by the user /thecoolshoeshine. The feature that made this sample version unique was that fact that along with a tiny Royal Blue-colored “Jumpman” logo, each of the tongue tags also featured “00000 of 00000.”
If anyone had visited ShoeZeum situated at NV 89101 in Las Vegas back in 2013, they would have been left in amazement and awe of that had been up on display all around the space at that time. A single display featured a pair each of the five Air Jordan 1 original colorways from 1985. Another display had a pair on it that had once been worn by Michael Jordan and another had been showcasing the extremely rare Air Jordan 1 OG “UNC.” The Air Jordan 1 “Royal” had also been there and prior to its 2013 retro re-release, Jordan Brand had even dropped identical-looking socks.
A couple of weeks before the month of September had officially kicked off; rumors had been circulating that the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” could potentially make its comeback in 2017. On the day immediately before the arrival of the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred,” TheShoeGame.com provided confirmation that the Brand the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” would indeed be one of Jordan releases 2017. Taking a hint from all the original Air Jordan 1 colorways that Jordan Brand has brought back in recent times, the Black- and Royal Blue-colored sneaker will most likely be receiving the remastered treatment.
For further release details, sneakerheads will have to keep checking back. However, one thing is for certain that the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” will indeed be one of Jordan releases 2017.
