While most people were on guard for April Fools pranks, I was on the look out for the new Nike Air Jordan 1 ‘Royal’ that Nike re-released last saturday. Even though Michael Jordan never wore these on a NBA court, they are still one of the most historical Jordan 1’s. After finding the low cuts last year, I finally had the chance to complete the Royal family.
Just like last year’s AJ1 releases (the Banned and the Shattered Backboard), the Royals are also made of a buttery soft full-grain type of leather. As you can see in the picture below. The 2013 version was much smoother and felt cheaper than these ones. I must say that Nike did a good job on this release.
