Many sneakerheads probably recall seeing this Air Jordan 1 Retro iteration before, perhaps on this blog, but they had likely been referring to it as the “Hornets” colorway. However, the fact of the matter is that even though they probably draw some inspiration from the Charlotte Hornets, the official nickname of this Air Jordan 1 Retro rendition is actually “Feng Shui.” This time even Jordan Brand has even confirmed a date for the upcoming jordan releases 2015 of the Air Jordan 1 Retro “Feng Shui” and it will apparently be taking place next month.
It is understand why many within the sneaker community assumed that this colorway would be dubbed “Hornets,” considering the color scheme that this sneaker sports. Jordanheads and NBA fans are probably aware of the fact that Michael Jordan owns the Charlotte Hornets professional basketball franchise/team, so he is probably quite delighted by this latest colorway of original signature sneaker. This colorway consists of the three different hues, namely Blue Lagoon, Bright Concord and White, obviously inspired the official colors of the Hornets. Hence, it would not be entirely wrong to refer to call in a “Hornets” colorway.
This Air Jordan 1 Retro colorway likely gets its “Feng Shui” nickname from the unknown Chinese characters that are printed on the insoles. Feng Shui happens to be a Chinese philosophical system that believes that everyone should be in harmony with the surrounding harmony. The Chinese writing could be the characters of wind-wind since that is the letter translation of Feng Shui. As for the sneaker itself, it is made up of a white leather upper, topped with purple overlaying panels and teal branding, such as the Jordan Jumpman featured on the heel and tongue.
As mentioned, a Jordan release 2015 for next month has been confirmed for this new Air Jordan 1 Retro colorway. Jordan Brand has announced that the Air Jordan 1 Retro “Feng Shui” will hit the shelves on October 10th.
