There have been numerous Air Jordan 1 releases this year, highlighted by the return of the "Banned" colorway launching in a month, as well as the "Black Toe" later in the year. (Rumors have been swirling around for a while now that the coveted "Royal" colorway could also surface in 2016.) In stark contrast to the return of the OGs, Jordan Brand has conferred a brand new build to the Air Jordan 1 silhouette, featuring breathable, lightweight construction and a tall, stretchy collar that's become a fixture on numerous contemporary Nike silhouettes. Finished in black and white colorways, the Air Jordan 1 High Ultra is due to launch in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
