Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 1 has begun to surface in several summer-ready iterations. Here is a closer look at the AJ1 Retro High OG “Light Smoke Grey” set to release in July 2020.

AJ1 “Light Smoke Grey”

Even after three decades, Michael Jordan and Nike still manage to drop interesting colourways for the iconic AJ1. And the fever doesn’t seem to be about to stop.

With summer closer than ever, we are now taking a first look at the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Light Smoke Grey”.


Unveiled by sneaker insiders @hanzuying, the summer-ready colorway called “Light Smoke Grey” combines classic and new elements for a fresh look.

The sneaker’s upper features panels of premium leather in light grey and white. Black accents also hit the shoe with details like the laces and the lateral/medial Swoosh branding.


Additional details include the dash of “Varsity Red” that graces the ankle region. The latest adds a striking pop of contrast on the monotone colourway. A black ball-and-wings logo appears on the collar and a black/red Nike Air logo is printed on the tongue.

Finally, white midsoles and black outsoles complete the colour-blocking.
