SHOP: Air Jordan 1 High Wings – Available NOW on Kixify
Joining alongside last year’s Air Jordan 12 Wings, will be this exclusive variation of the Air Jordan 1 High that’s treated in a similar aesthetic for one of its more stand out finishes this year. Limited to only 19,400 pairs, this Wings version of the Air Jordan 1 High comes in a Black and Metallic Gold color scheme with a distressed leather construction. The Wings theme is implemented on to the shoe, but this time around the leather upper is already rubbed off, thus revealing the very unique copper finish. Premium details include the embossed Wings logo on its tongues, leather laces, Gold metal Wings on the heels, individual numbering on the inner tongue, a golden Wings pattern on its insoles and an icy outsole that bears the wording “WINGS” in white.
Here’s what Nike had to say about the inspiration behind the shoe:
“MJ has credited his teachers with giving him the confidence needed to succeed on the hardwood. In that spirit, Wings employs the power of education to help the youth unlock greatness. The new Air Jordan I embodies the mission behind Wings. The shoe’s upper features a rubbed off leather upper to reveal an aged copper finish, helping further the belief of having greatness within. Additionally, golden hardware is found at the heel, along with individual numbering on the inner tongue.”
Update: (05/15): Nike releasee the official images of the Air Jordan 1 High Wings and has also announced that it will release on May 17th for $200 through Nike SNKRS at 10am EST. Only 19,400 have been made.

Juan Carrillo, Editor: Very nicely done. Love the theme/execution on the shoe. One of the most unique Jordan 1 finishes I’ve ever seen. Would love to own a pair or two. One to rock, one to display.
