It has been a busy year for the Jordan 1 to say the least. With so many prolific releases, it was a surprise to see one more hitting stores before the end of the year, especially after the special release of the “Top 3”. Although the “storm blue” may not reach those heights, this is the first return of the colourway.

Nothing new here as white, mixed with the titled “storm blue” colour the entire upper. Jordan wings appear in white on the side, while Nike Air logo is found on the tongues of each.
