After bringing back the Air Jordan 1 Banned in 2016, the Jumpman plans to release this weekend another coveted Air Jordan 1 sneaker, with the upcoming drop of the royal blue iteration of the classic basketball silhouette.

Regarded as one of the most highly sought-after Air Jordan sneakers, the Air Jordan 1 royal blue was last retroed in 2013. Now, four years later, the shoe will finally make its return in its OG version. Releasing as a remastered edition, the 2017 version of this AJ 1 will feature a black and royal blue premium leather upper with hits of white displayed on the midsole. Rounding out this pair of shoes will be the matching royal blue outsole, giving these sneakers the proper royal blue touch.

Along with the highly anticipated launch of this Air Jordan 1, the Jumpman will release a matching pair of Air Jordan 31s, dubbed the Flight Guy, to coincide the release of the classic Jordan Brand shoe.

The release of the Air Jordan 1 royal blue iteration is set for Saturday, April 1. The pair of Jordan Brand sneakers will launch globally and will be available while supply lasts.

In related Jordan Brand news, the Jumpman will release its highly anticipated collaboration with Kaws later this week.
