Out of all the iterations of the iconic Jordan Brand sneaker models that are available are at retailers, perhaps the currently most popular rendition would be the Dover Street Market x Air Jordan 1. This patent leather Air Jordan 1 pair that can be seen here is likely to be mistaken for another Dover Street Market x Jordan Brand collaboration. However, not only is it nothing of the sort, it also happens to be a pair that will not be retailing at any of the Jordan release dates 2015.
In the previous week, another patent leather Air Jordan 1 had hit the shelves and now, photos of another glossy looking Air Jordan 1 sneaker has been circulating throughout the Internet. This is actually quite a legendary Air Jordan 1 colorway that has never made an original retail debut. However, Jordanheads will be disappointed to learn that new jordans visible here is merely a sample, which means that is not going to be released any time soon and they will not be able to cop it.
Unlike the tonal Navy hue that covers the upper of the Dover Street Market x Air Jordan 1 iteration, the upper of this AJ 1 sample has been dressed up in Carolina Blue. Of course, the upper is made of patent leather and the Carolina Blue hue featured over it is quite vibrant. It is definitely sad news that Jordan Brand did not decide to mass produce this sample once and bring it within the reach of sneaker collectors who would gladly grab it.
The use of patent leather is apparently a part of Jordan Brand’s experimentation with their various sneaker silhouettes. Now that it has been clarified, Jordanheads can stop dreaming about this sample patent leather Air Jordan 1 and look forward to other upcoming Jordan release dates 2015. In fact, they may even consider copping the Air Jordan 1 High “UNC” that will hit the shelves on October 31st.
