Air Jordan 1 – High Black Toe 2016 Overview:
Overshadowed by other original Air Jordan 1 colorways like “Bred”, “Chicago” and “Royal”, this “Black Toe” edition is no less important when it comes to the history of the legendary shoe. Worn on the court by Michael Jordan during his rookie season, the Air Jordan 1 Black Toe features a similar look to the Chicago colorway but takes away some of the red from the upper in favor of black on the eye stay and toe panels. This listing is for the 2016 release of the Black Toe Jordan 1, which disappeared from stock immediately wherever it was released. Grab a pair now before they disappear again.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro BG “Black Toe,” one of the initial colorways of the Air Jordan 1 line, gained prominence after appearing in various Nike advertising campaigns (including the photo that inspired the Jordan logo itself). Yet surprisingly, Jordan only wore this colorway in a select few games, which added to its appeal. The 2016 edition, which was retired in 2013, reverts to the 1985 branding with the Nike Air emblem on the tongue and no Jumpman logo on the heel.
The month of November will be fantastic for Air Jordan 1 Retro arrival. With the recently revealed Air Jordan 1 “Top Three,” not only will three of the greatest colorways ever mentioned, but Jordan Brand will also be delivering some heat for the purists earlier in the month with the re-release of the remastered Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” on November 5th, 2016 for $160 USD. The Air Jordan 1 Black Toe hasn’t appeared on store shelves in more than three years. The “Black Toe” colorway, one of the originals from the Air Jordan 1’s 1985 release schedule, contrasts a classic Chicago dose of Gym Red on the leather heel panel with a black toecap for its toe.
