TBT: The Air Jordan 1 Blue Moon Flying Us Up To the Moon and Back
It’s Thursday, fam! And we all know what this means: TBT! Today we’re throwing it back to yet another Retro Jordan from the “Best Hand In The Game Collection”. And as obsessed as we were about the Clay Green and the Yellow Ochre, we are head over heels for this one, too. Yes, it’s the one and only: Jordan 1 Blue Moon.
Air Jordan 1 Blue Moon : Another Cool Member of the Awesome 2018 Pack
Jordan 1s are Royalty. Especially when they’re Blue Jordans. The Best Hand Collection was a way to pay tribute to MJ’s accomplishments on-court and his off-court love to playing cards. Every pair of this collection has a story behind it. But the “Blue Moon” variety was made to honor MJ’s 14 All-Star appearances and the three MVP Awards he took home during the midseason classic.
About the Sleek Looks
On par with the beloved Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe”, this pair also features a Chicago-Bulls style color blocking. “Black Toe” refers to black mudguards, eyelets, and lacing system. And obviously, the other color is a crisp White that acts as a canvas for the shoe. It hits the perforated toe boxes and outsoles. A Blue Moon blue replaces the Red on this shoe, though. This gorgeous hue dresses the heel tabs, Swooshes, and treads of this Jordan 1 in a soft suede. A black Wings logo hits the side of the collar, finishing off the throwback look of this shoe. And finally, the coolest part, is the straight flush graphic printed on the right insole, which makes the shoe tell its own story.
This Pack was an ultimate success. All four shoes were a piece of art, and they made a minimum of 250% price premium over their original retail price. That’s just insane. No wonder we enjoy these TBTs so much.
Dropped, Copped, and Resold for TONS
The Jordan 1 Blue Moon in particular dropped on May 1, 2018 for $160. But today, it’s reselling for a hot $568. We can’t deny, fam. These AJ1s deserve it. But this pair is long gone, now. And your only chance in getting them is through the aftermarket. So good luck with that. But next time you witness a similar release, make sure you’re ready. And by ready we mean bot-ready. You need to make sure you pick the perfect bot, though. Copping such special pairs is impossible without a good bot. And if you are drooling over some cash, you might as well cop multiples with the best servers and proxies out there.
