Jordan Brand seems to be growing more and more accustomed to making use of suede in their sneakers, whether it is regular releases or exclusive pairs. Last year, Jordan Brand was charging $400 for each pair of the Air Jordan 4 Premium “Suede,” which as sneakerheads might realize, kind of resembles the upcoming KAWS x Air Jordan 4. Mark Wahlberg even received a pair of the Air Jordan 4 Premium “Suede” as an early Christmas present, thanks to his close ties with Jordan Brand. This time, Jordan Brand has made use of suede on the Air Jordan 1 High, which is set to arrive in these two GS-exclusive colorways.
The KAWS x Air Jordan 4 release is not the only the iteration of the model in recent times to feature suede over its uppers. Sneakerheads like recall the the Air Jordan 4 “Royalty” that made its retail debut earlier in February. Many sneakerheads may have even copped a pair and they should know that its evidently luxurious uppers are also made up of suede. Even the hang tag of the upcoming Air Jordan 4, which was seen in a photo that Kaws shared not too long ago, was also made up entirely of suede, much like the sneaker it will attached to.
One of the two upcoming suede Air Jordan 1 High GS colorways appears to be sporting a “Red October” looking, while the other one somewhat resembles the upcoming KAWS x Air Jordan 4. As can seen, both the sneakers are completely monochromatic and tonal. Thus, one of them is entirely dressed up in Red, while the other is covered in Grey, with the respective hues also appearing over their branding, inner linings, laces and soles.
While it is true that Jordan Brand keeps on dropping so many Air Jordan 1 releases, these ones are undoubtedly quite dope, and only small-footed sneakerheads will be able to lace up in them. While it has not been confirmed exactly when they will make their retail debut, they will indeed be joining upcoming Jordan releases 2017, so keep checking back.
