Everything you need to know about the "Royal" AJ1 Flyknit.
The beloved "Royal" colorway of the Air Jordan 1 will be releasing once again this Saturday, but this time around they won't feature the familiar leather construction.
Nike has officially introduced the "Royal" Air Jordan 1 Flyknit, featuring a yarn-like upper as well as a Zoom Air unit in the heel, which also differs from the standard Air Jordan 1. The colorblocking is exactly what you'd expect from a Royal Air Jordan 1, including a blend of black and game royal throughout the upper, accompanied by royal branding throughout and a white midsole.
"The court had never seen anything like the Air Jordan I when it debuted in 1985. Constructed from the best materials of the era, its design carried it from cutting edge to classic as the Air Jordan line gained altitude. Now, with over thirty years of colors and materials behind it, the original anti-gravity machines take another step forward with a complete Flyknit reconstruction. The flexible, lightweight update includes pigskin-leather accents and stays true to its DNA with Nike Air cushioning, a high-cut collar and OG royal and black blocking."
The Flyknit version of the Air Jordan 1 will be making its retail debut this Saturday, October 7th. The kicks will be available in men's sizes for $180, as well as GS sizes for $140.
