Drawing inspiration from the classic Air Jordan 3 “True Blue.”
ORIGINAL ARTICLE, OCTOBER 5:
Jordan Brand‘s line of signature silhouettes has a tendency to borrow color schemes from one another. And with the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3 coming up in 2023, the beloved Air Jordan 1 is honoring the silhouette by adopting two of its most classic palettes: the “White Cement” and the “True Blue.” The latter installment first appeared on our radar last month, and now we have an even more detailed perspective of the kicks thanks to these newly-surfaced on-foot images.
While the traditional cement print patterns signature to the Air Jordan 3 aren’t present on this particular makeup, the majority of the palette is translated. “True Blue” hits are thrown onto the forefoot overlays, Swooshes, laces, ball-and-wings logos and tongue trimming while the ankle flaps and lower heel overlays are prepared with a muted gray hue. Elsewhere on the high-cut kicks, you’ll find clean white finishes dress up the tongues, toe boxes, quarter panels and collars.
Jordan Brand has yet to announce when the Air Jordan 1 “True Blue” will be officially hitting the market, but early reports are saying that they could arrive as early as January 2023 in full family sizes.
