Nike's signature Flyknit technology has made its way to the sneaker that started it all: the iconic Air Jordan 1, which will launch in the OG "Banned" and "Royal" colorways. Both feature two-piece Flyknit uppers for supreme flexibility and breathability, accented with stitched-on leather Swooshes and the trademark Jordan "Wings" logo on the collar. Both rest on the traditional AJ1 tooling, featuring a crisp white midsole and contrast-colored outsole. The word on the street is that each pair will retail for $200 and land in stores sometime in September. Stay tuned for the exact release date.
