The AJ1 High OG White Cement drops May 6
The iconic design of the AJ1 High OG White Cement, along with its historical significance, has made it one of the most sought-after sneakers in the market. Let’s take a closer look at its details and how it’s a must-have sneaker for all sneakerheads.
The Air Jordan 1 (AJ1) was first released in 1985 and was designed by Peter Moore. It was the first sneaker released under the Air Jordan brand, which was created for His Airness himself, Michael Jordan. Quickly becoming a hit among basketball fans, the shoe’s design was inspired byJordan’s love for luxury cars and was meant to be a reflection of his style on the court.
Specifically, AJ1 High OG White Cement colorway is a special edition that’s first to be released on the shoe’s “High” silhouette. It features a white leather upper with grey accents, resembling an elephant/cement print. The most notable feature of the shoe is the cement styling on the heel and around the toe box.
The leather Swooshes, laces, Wings logo, and collar continue the shoe’s monochrome look in black, while the “Sail” midsole and gray rubber outsole finish off the design.
Like other special edition sneakers, the AJ1 High OG White Cement will have limited quantities and will likely sell out lightning fast, making it difficult for fans to get their hands on a pair. This limited availability has helped to drive up the resale value of the shoe, with some pairs selling for thousands of dollars.
Unfortunately, Nike has not yet provided any information on the release date of this White Cement colorway. With the help of the internet, rumors say that they are expected to go on sale for $180 on February 25 through Nike and other select retailers.
