The last Jordan release of the year is unlike one we’ve ever seen before. The Air Jordan Retro 1 ’97 is an Air Jordan XIII inspired Air Jordan 1 (take a second to wrap your head around that one). Named after the year that the AJ XIII was first released – 1997 – this Air Jordan 1 drops today, Monday, December 31st. A mostly gym red upper is built from tumbled leather and reflective 3M material. The Air Jordan on the ankle is made from a hologram, another key feature from the XIII. Black suede takes care of the ankle collar while black is also featured on the midsole and laces. What do you think of this remixed Retro 1?

The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’97 Textile “Red/Black” releases today, December 31st for $130 and is available at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at A link to buy online can be found below.
