Sometimes, the Air Jordan 1 brings back nostalgia like no other; this Retro High OG ‘Pollen’ provides that for fans of the classics. This colourway nods to the yellow and black colour-up used on a 1985 Dunk for the Iowa Hawkeyes. While having connections with the legendary ‘Be True to Your School’ pack, the ‘Pollen’ colourway links to the grail-worthy Dunk High ‘Wu-Tang’, proving its worth in the old-school hip-hop scene.
So – for these reasons – we reckon this AJ1 might be quite popular. Offering classic colour blocks, the shoe has a black tumbled leather base with striking yellow-hued overlays to offer a bumblebee aesthetic. Bright laces match up with the overlays, so do the Swooshes that dart across the sidewalls. On the tongue, there is a Nike Air label, certifying the cushioning technology embedded in the midsole unit. This is coated in a crisp white, dividing the upper from the grippy yellow outsole underfoot. Perfection? It isn’t far off.
