It is a fact that when wearing a sneaker that has a gum sole; it is usually unlikely to end up going wrong or messing up. This definitely applies to the “Black/Gum” colorway of the Air Jordan 1, which is all the more reason that 23 is Back readers would want to cop and wear it. Jordan Brand has already confirmed one of the December 2014 Jordan release date for the retail debut of this Air Jordan 1 sneaker.
Jordan Brand keeps on finding new ways to revamp the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, and considering that it has been designed to have a basic and minimal makeup, this is no easy task to accomplish. This is one of the reasons that Jordan heads, including 23isBack readers, admire this iconic yet subtle Jordan Brand sneaker model to a great extent. No wonder, this latest “Black/Gum” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG has taken the sneaker community by storm.
Not only is this colorway subtle, it is also perfectly balanced and it probably also reminds of simpler air Jordan 1 and Dunk colorways from the past. The leather upper of sneaker has been dressed up in a bold tonal black hue. The black leather lace collar, which has the Jordan Wings logo dembossed into it, Nike Swoosh and toe box also seem to have a unique finish over them, which appears somewhat like speckling. The black upper and midsole have been paired with a gum sole at the very bottom and the Nike Air branding on the tongue is also in a matching light brow hue.
It should be obvious why such a luxurious appeal is offered by this latest Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG colorway. This new jordans had already become available on eBay prior to its official retail debut and it is likely that some 23 is Back readers might have even copped a pair from there. However, since one of the December 2014 Jordan release date Jordan Brand had announced was December 6, the for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Black/Gum” is on its way to officially hit the shelves.
