Ever since 2010, Cyber Monday has been proving to be the busiest online shopping day in the United States, so much so that it is now celebrated every year as a genuine holiday. Cyber Monday 2014 had marked the retail debut of the Air Jordan XX9 “Legend Blue,” which was probably the lightest Air Jordan iteration to have been introduced by Jordan Brand. Since year’s Cyber Monday is also nearing, Jordan Brand and Michael Jordan decided to provide Jordanheads with the opportunity to cop a special version of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Cyber Monday” from the comfort of their homes.
Earlier this week, Jordan Brand was in Shanghai, China for the celebration of their 30th Anniversary where a We Are Jordan event was held. Apart from Tinker Hatfield, Michael Jordan himself also attended the event and was spotted rocking the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Cyber Monday,” which is apparently this year’s Cyber Monday release from Jordan Brand. Of course, this is not the only notable sneaker from Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2015 collection that will hit the shelves in next two months. Unless sneakerheads have forgotten, Jordan Brand will also commemorate Black Friday 2015 by dropping the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” that Michael Jordan wore during the All-Star Game back in 1993.
Much like the OG, this year’s edition also sports the same Black and White color scheme. The sneaker’s upper is entirely dressed up in sleek Black, with its toebox perforated and a tonal Black Jordan Wings logo embossed onto the collar. The crisp White hue not only covers the entire rubber outsole, but also makes an appearance in the form of classic “Nike Air” logos.
Back in 2013, Jordan Brand claimed that by 2017, they would manage to earn up to $2 billion from online sales and it is likely that they will achieve that goal. The Jordan release date of this Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Cyber Monday” on November 30th will take them a step closer to making that claim a reality.
