Over the past few months, news that the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Metallic Purple” is returning has been circulating throughout the sneaker world. Originally released in 1985 as part of the iconic “Metallic Pack”, the sneaker has remained a grail for many. Although the pair may be over 35 years old, it has been reissued far less than many other pairs. Thankfully, that’s all changing this year. Now, after a decade of waiting, this purple AJ1 is finally making a return in 2021.
Having last been released in 2009, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Metallic Purple” is something of a unicorn in the sneaker community. For 2021, Jordan Brand is ensuring it does this classic pair justice. Constructed in premium white tumbled leather, the shoe features glossy purple accents on the Swoosh and collar. Further purple accents also adorn the tongue tag, outsole and iconic Wings logo, making for an eye-catching pair of Jordan 1s. Finally, a set of simple white laces brings this AJ1 to a close, rounding off this must-have pair of Jordans.
