It was back in 2013 when Air Jordan Retro High OG releases received the original “NIKE AIR” treatment, something that was greatly enjoyed by Jordan Brand aficionados. 23 is BACK is here to keep readers updated that this high cut silhouette and its classic branding will be making an appearance this year too. Much like last year, it is quite natural to expect this timeless silhouette to be released in new colorways, and the Gym Red edition, featuring white accents and midsole, is included among them.
The Air Jordan 1 “Gym Red” is going to hit the shelves on June 28th this year. The fact of the matter is that an Air Jordan 1 in a “NIKE AIR” version was not exactly expected to make a return. In fact, many Jordan Brand sneaker enthusiasts may have been assumed that a “NIKE AIR” version of these kicks had faded off the scene after its strong run last year. However, that is not the case. The truth is that the renewed AJKO style marks the return of many other sneakers of this kind.
These kicks can be expected to be all too welcome as soon as they hit the shelves, considering the fact that they are a brilliant example of conspicuous good looks. A stunning solid red is sported by the upper, with a collar toebox featuring suede that is inlaid against red leather. To give the pair some contrast, the branding, midsole and Swoosh are in white. Thus, these soon-to-be-released Air Jordan OGs have quite a simple palette with just two colors, but even then these kicks are pretty stylish.
In the past, the classic Air Jordan 1 OGs are known for their more non-traditional colorways, but lately it seems that Jordan Brand is not very concerned with keeping up with the tradition of those colorsways this year. In fact, Jordan Brand seems more interested in bringing the Air Jordan 1 with mixed aesthetics. This was recently seen in the “Barons” and “Laney” colorways. The “Gym Red” colorway is proof that the “NIKE AIR” branded silhouette is branching out.
The bottom line is that Air Jordan 1 “Gym Red” is quite a non-traditional example of the Air Jordan OG, and it would not be wrong to state that gives similar vibes as the “Chicago” colorway. This clean “Gym Red” colorway is sure to appeal all those red sneaker lovers out there, especially since it stays true to the classic “NIKE AIR” branding. Thus, 23 is BACK.me brings good news that the wait for these kicks will be over later in the next month.
