TBT: Air Jordan 1 Yellow Ochre: Another Award Another Celebration
The Air Jordan 1 is the Jumpman’s most iconic silhouette since the beginning of time. And here at ANB, Jordan 1s are always our favorite shoes to throw it back to. They feature history, amazing colorways, epic backstories, and can fetch you lots of money! That might change one day. Who knows? But today ain’t the day, fam! This week’s throwback is to one sunny pair: The Jordan 1 Yellow Ochre.
Air Jordan 1 Yellow Ochre: Another Member of the Awesome 2018 Pack
This cool AJ1 was part of a lineup in 2018. It included the “Yellow Ochre,” “Blue Moon” and “Clay Green” colorways. All three shoes of the ‘Best Hand In The Game’ collection had a similar color distribution. They all featured “Black Toe” style blocking, each painted in a different color in place of red.
We already covered the Clay Green AJ1 last time. But this week, it’s all about the Yellow pair. The Jordan 1 Yellow Ochre perfectly represents everything that makes the sneaker what it is. Other than legendary, the best part about the AJ1 is that it’s unique and simply clean. This Yellow Jordan 1, though, is pretty vibrant compared to other colorways.
On and About the Yellow Looks
The shoe is dressed in a Summit White, Black, and Yellow Ochre color scheme. This premium leather-built “Black Toe” kick replaces red with a lovely tint of bright yellow. The usual perforations on the white toe box are here to stay, keeping the kick extra breathable. The Wings logo and laces also arrive in black, wrapping up the final look of this shoe. This special colorway celebrates Jordan’s five Most Valuable Player awards. And to further highlight this milestone, a royal flush is printed on the shoe’s right insole. That’s the dopest detail about this pair!
The Right 2018 AJ1s
We just love when a colorway takes the Brand’s classic features and adds to them a clean and modern touch. If you were searching for the perfect pair of kicks to wear during summer 2018, then you didn’t need to look any further than the Jordan 1 Yellow Ochre! Gettin’ em true to size was all you needed for the perfect fit and flex! This pair was just the perfect sneakers to rock on the street and on the court, fam. This yellow pair is long gone now, though.
Unless you’re willing to pay $563 on the aftermarket, then go ahead. This pair retailed for the usual $160 back in the day. Just look at how precious it is today, with a price 3 times what is dropped for just three years ago. Just sick! But don’t worry peeps! You don’t need to quit your sneaker hobby for just one kick.It’s never too late to cop a good pair, especially if it’s a super special drop like this month’s Ambush Dunks. And always stay tuned for all sneaker info coming up!
