    Lets keep this thread clean and uneventful. Reason the last one was locked.

    The classic Air Jordan 1 Black/Royal color way is slated to re-release again on Feb.16, 2013. The Black/Royal 1 is the only OG AJ1 color way to be consecutively retroed exactly in it's original form. The 2013 model, like the '85 & '01 Royals, will feature no Jumpmans, it's correct Nike Air tongue tag, and a blank heel. They are to be produced in limited quantities.


    Model: AJ Retro 1 Black/Royal
    Retail: $140
    Release Date: February 16, 2013

    Okay. If you look at the pics in the last thread, the banned leather was nowhere near as shiny as the rotals. I dont know what to make of that.

    If I strike out on the WCIIIs, the exrltra loot will be dropped on a second pair of these.

    Royals wont have that premium quality distressed dull leather like the Banneds. They're sticking to the smooth leather. If they're anything like the Chicago 1 leather, which I'm sure they are, then the quality will be good.

    I need two of those. It's been a long 12yrs, and I refuse to wait another for a potential butchering. Are these $140 or $130? I'm hearing both those numbers over and over again,

    Since they cost $30 more I hope they're better than Chicago leather, and you're not paying $30 for Nike Air and a box

    It could just be from the lighting in the pictures but it does looks like the banned leather is more dull then the royals.

    My thirst for these are at an all time high. I'm parched. I don't buy a lot of J's, but when I do it's for classic pairs like this. (and like black/cement 3s and bred 4s)
