Jordan Brand commemorates Michael Jordan's NBA Rookie Of The Year award with a special version of his first signature shoe, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "ROY". The iconic silhouette is dressed in a white tumbled leather upper with tan nubuck overlays, a white nylon tongue and a black tumbled leather collar and swoosh. An MJ quote about the award and his rookie year stats are printed on the inside of each ankle wing, while a black leather tongue tag and black "Jordan Wings" logo finish off the upper details. A white midsole and black outsole supplies the base, while black and alternate red laces complete the package.
This shoe will only be available in-store at 1106 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia on Saturday November 11th at 10:00am on a first come, first serve basis. Line-up will start at 12 midnight the night before. Do not line up before midnight, or you will be asked to leave.
