One of the major recent Air Jordan releases 2018 is getting restocked this coming weekend after it sold-out upon its retail debut. Jordan Brand and Los Angeles–based men’s store Union astonished everyone with their recent, unexpected collaboration. This collaboration came to fruition on November 24th, 2018 with the release of two Union x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG colorways, which retailed at a price of $190 at UnionJordan.com. A launch event also took place at a secret location. In case you were not able to cop a pair of both or either of the two Union x Air Jordan 1 colorways, they are getting restocked.
The Secret Release Event For The Union x Air Jordan 1
It is true that the only way to cop the Union x Air Jordan 1 colorways was via UnionJordan.com. However, sneakerheads who entered had entered Union’s raffle had to visit a secret location in Los Angeles to pick up their pairs. The location was revealed to be a huge warehouse that was located in the Koreatown neighborhood of the city. The lucky winners of the raffle had to stand in a line and wait until it was their turn to receive their ordered pairs. Compared to the way sneakerheads generally cop kicks from a retail store, this secret release event is being described as a “mini–convention.”
The Union x Air Jordan 1 Restock Is Happening This Weekend
Despite having just joined recent Air Jordan releases 2018, it seems the Union x Air Jordan 1 colorways have already become highly coveted. Of course, the two colorways will eventually also pop up at sneaker resale stores like Flight Club and Stadium Goods, but you can expect the prices to be significantly higher. Probably like the initial release, you will be able to buy just a single pair of each colorway. Multiple orders will be cancelled. Furthermore, apparel does not seem to be included. Union has confirmed that the upcoming restock will take place at UnionJordan.com on November 24th at 9 AM PST.
