Jordan Brand has officially announced its Spring 2022 Retro collection in December 2021, with extended sizing for women, sustainable materials and fresh expressions of classic silhouettes. The brand plans to release 15 new models, that honor its legacy namesake, connect its competitive spirit, dominance and excellence with a new generation of fans.
One of the standouts from the collection is the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Dark Marina Blue’ colorway one of the newest iterations to be added to Jordan’s historical lineage. Dressed in a Dark Marina Blue, Black, and White color combination, it is expected to release at select retailers and Nike.com this February. While the sneaker has been already leaked via various Instagram profiles last winter, now we have the official images and release dates officially released by Nike.
“We don’t want to release these OG colorways randomly,” says Donald Kelsey, Jordan Brand Product Director, Global Retro Line. “It has to be tethered in some way to MJ’s story. Our team is serious about connecting the dots for when these OG models or colorways release. The diehard fans can see that we care about preserving history, while new fans are invited to dig into their curiosity and explore the reasons for timing. Why now? Why this shoe? Then the answers start flowing. We never launch a retro in isolation.” – he adds.
Air Jordan 1 Heritage
Made exclusively for Michael Jordan, the original Air Jordan sneakers were first introduced 37 years ago, on November 17, 1984, and released to the public on April 1, 1985. MJ has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness, ever since his game-winning shot that won the championship for North Carolina. In 1985 he showed up on the court wearing the original Air Jordan I, that instantly made a hit and captured the imagination of fans worldwide. The first model was designed for Nike by one of the most iconic designers in the history of basketball shoes, Peter Moore.
The basketball court for me, during a game, is the most peaceful place I can imagine. On the basketball court, I worry about nothing. When I’m out there, no one can bother me…
– Michael Jordan
