One can never go wrong with a classic. In the luxury retail business, there are simply some pieces that will never go out of style. These items are ones that changed the game, igniting a whole new consumer base within the market and establishing a solid identity that is as strong now as it was when it first debuted. In sneaker culture, one such piece is Air Jordan 1, and the world-famous sub-brand recently released a modern tribute shoe for the new generation of customers.

Release date: February 19, 2017
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “All Star” sneakers were released during the NBA’s much-anticipated All-Star weekend, namely on February 19, 2017. It was the perfect time to debut them as basketball fans were all hyped up to see their favorite players on the court and see what the latest fashions are in the world of basketball. Depending on the size, a GS-sized version costs only $140 per pair while a men’s variation will cost $175.
Usually, Air Jordan shoes are all about their bombastic silhouettes but the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “All Star” stand out due to its iridescent colorway. With its almost holographic-appeal, the shoes beautifully capture light at every turn and their glow will certainly grab everyone’s attention. Additionally, a translucent outsole caps off this magical look. In true Air Jordan fashion, the silhouette is as strong as ever, particularly with this high-top version, and looks to be strong and durable enough to play the game in (or even any other sport).
Iridescence is relatively a new design feature in the world of sneaker culture. No other shoe has really exemplified such and it might prove to be a challenging detail for sports shoes. Making use of fine material, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “All Star” shoes look to be too precious to actually wear for every day or for playing the game. Furthermore, cleaning and maintaining this beautiful one-of-a-kind shoe may be difficult and might require specific processes in doing so.
