July has almost come to an end and August is upon us, which means that 23 is Back readers will be seeing a lot of the “Sport Blue” shade. What is so special about this? The shade has rarely been seen ever since the release of the Air Jordan 6 “Sport Blue” back in 1991. Considering that the coming marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, a flock of Retro “Sport Blue” colorways can be expected to have one of the August 2014 Jordan releases.
Plenty of colorways of the Jordan Team 1 have already been released. It seems that apart from the “Sport Blue” version of the Jordan Team 1, several other colorways can also be expected to be released this year. It can be assumed that all the 23 is Back readers here are currently most interested in Air Jordan retros, the Air Jordan 6 “Sport Blue” being one of them. However, they should keep in mind that in the coming months, the “Sport Blue” theme will also be gracing team sneakers. The Jordan Team 1“Sport Blue” is a prime example because of its Smurf-like appearance, which only points to its dedication to the “Sport Blue” shade.
Obviously, as it can be seen, an all blue upper is featured by this sneaker, which is made up of faux snakeskin and leather. The signature white outsole makes its way beneath the blue midsole while the grip is provided by the blue tread. These kicks have certainly never been seen before, and considering how powerful the Jordan 2014 and 2015 lineup already seems to be, this pair makes an incredible addition.
As far as retro Jordan Team 1 releases are concerned, there has not been much activity, considering how the sneaker is not exactly a part of the signature collection inspired from Michael Jordan’s own sneakers. However, Jordan heads here will agree that they are still worth copping, and since the release date might be near, they should save a spot among the Jordan release dates 2014 on their calendars.
