While the Air Jordan 1’s build does most of the work on its own, some credit has to be given to the colorways applied to it. There are quite a few to mention but today we aim our focus on the inimitable Royal colorway. The style is making its way back to retailers soon, and it’s such a smash that it was destined to be our Sneaker of The Week.

The color blocking on the Air Jordan 1 Royal is what makes it so special, with a Royal blue toe, heel, ankle and swoosh. Tumbled leather appears prominently on the swoosh and provides contrast in both color and texture from the smooth black leather build. It’s finished off with a white outsole and black nylon tongue for a classic look every time.

You’ll be able to pick these up at select Nike retailers including Concepts on April 1, and hopefully there will be enough to go around.
