AIR JORDAN I RETRO HIGH ‘POLLEN’
Heat Check 15. August, 2021
More than 35 years after its debut, the Air Jordan 1 still stands as a timeless and versatile design built to match any aesthetic. It’s the perfect silhouette to support the “Pollen” makeup—no allergies to worry about here.
The loudest? Yellow. Appearing on pairs from all eras, yellow retro Air Jordans are yet to slow down despite what the hue might mean on a stoplight.
Given its two-tone, yellow and black arrangement, the pair has gotten a barrage of comparisons to the near-mythical Nike Dunk High “Wu-Tang” from 1999. Dark tumbled leather sets the stage for handfuls of smooth overlays dipped in the titular “Pollen” hue. The latest take on Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker forgoes any “W” denoting its allegiance to a hip-hop act, but its “Wings” insignia on the lateral heel boasts a black makeup. Underfoot, the high-top Air Jordan 1 opts for a “colorless” midsole that allows for the outsole to revel in the spotlight.
