The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG WMNS “Panda” has been officially unveiled and it will be joining next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. If you do not pay sufficient attention, the colorway you see here may look similar to the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Dynamic Yellow.” Their color schemes are indeed similar if not the same, but of course, the latter features a deconstructed look, with two missing Nike “Swoosh” logos while the other two are covered in a Dynamic Yellow shade. In the case of the Air Jordan 1 High “Panda” though, it is a women’s exclusive and it features a pony hair-like material.
While it is true that Jordan Brand has utilized pony hair for special Air Jordan iterations a number of times before, but the material has never been officially featured on the Air Jordan 1 High. Back in 2017 though, custom footwear designer The Shoe Surgeon unveiled custom, pony hair-covered versions of the Air Jordan 1 “Banned,” “Royal” and “Shadow.” Last year, Jordan Brand also released the Air Jordan 1 Low No Swoosh “Pony Hair.” While it is certainly far from the Air Jordan 1 High, this Swoosh-less variation of the model had all-Black uppers made up of a pony hair and premium leather.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG WMNS “Panda” somewhat resembles the “Black/White” colorway of the silhouette, which originally debuted back in 1985. Its Black and White color scheme, and OG “Chicago”-inspired color blocking, is certainly the same. The most obvious difference is the fact that its Nike “Swoosh” logos and its overlays are covered in a material that seems to be somewhat like pony hair. Another difference is that its laces are Black-colored, although it will come with an extra pair of plain White laces. Its badge-like “Air Jordan Wings” logos and its soles are also plain White as well.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG WMNS “Panda” is scheduled to make its retail debut among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019 on Nike.com and at select retailers.
