Air Jordan Retro 1 (I) High and Low Preview

Early March we confirmed that some Air Jordan Retro 1 Highs would release in Winter of 2008, and now have a follow up with some catalog images. As you can see, Jordan Brand has added a strap to the Air Jordan Retro 1 High.

Already, a lot of people are angered by the newly acquired strap, giving them a Nike Vandal look, rather than the Jordan I (or Dunks).

On the good side, a Air Jordan Retro 1 Low in Black, Red will release, looking identical to the Original (but low). Another pair which is predominately Red will release to the top 325 stores. More images after the jump, via TheRetroKid.

  1. This shoe wouldve been fire if they wouldve left off the jumpman logo and that wack azz strap……nobody is gonna want to hoop and break there ankles in these!! I see an incident like that happen in the 1's…

  2. idk what to think gotta see some actual pics, till then idk about these.

    the strap looks pretty stupid though, not really liking that.

  3. I do like them….all 4 of them, and BEFORE ppl get all bent out of shape, those straps are ENTIRELY REMOVABLE. Personally, I dont think the strap is all that bad honestly.

  4. i'm not sure the straps are removable, it doesn't look like it from that pic… i would just cut them off though haha.

  5. why they all gotta have boring non-matching white soles. the top is all black and red, cept the last one, and the white sole kills it. plus it gets dirty easily

  6. why?

    thats all i have to say

    they will kill jordan brand if they release a pair of jordan 1 highs in the OG colorway with a strap

    i will burn my collection if they release these mofos with a strap

    this is all i can think of off of the top of my head i know i hav a few more notables in my closet!!

  7. what the fck is up with that strap?! i was excited when i heard JB was going to release the high top AJ1s, but with that strap theyve completely ruined them and made them horrific, and its hard to say that cause my favorite jordans are the 1s

  8. If JB…, my bad, GENTRY is gonna produce garbage like this then evry1 should boycott that mess. I mean i like the 1 s cause they resemble Dunks but they dont need no strap. It ruins the whole look of the shoe. I was thinkin' about coppin all the 1 s that come out later this year, but if they got straps then they ain't makin' it 2 my feet.

  9. I say fuck it, if u can take off the strap. and it juss helps u tell wat generation of Jordan it is. if the keep makin the same retros over and over how are mine soposed to raise in value? plus the strap doesnt look that bad

  10. and also, if those pictures stay true to the actual product, then screw those laces. i personally feel that the only air jordan with the thin spaghetti laces are the 12s and the 13s. those laces on the 1s would just kill them

  11. I'm fuckin' with those bred lows. But JB fucked the ones up by adding that stupid strap!! Looks like cheap vandals to me. lol.

  12. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO strike strike strike strike srike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike strike

  13. I'm coppin those bred lows. Gentry needs to be demoted for even thinking about adding that strap to the Highs. These won't even sell….I can see em' going on sale for 59.99. lol

  14. wtf the strap destroys the entire shoe. Are you sure this retro kid is a legit source all of his pics look wack.

  15. NIKE YOU JUST LOSS A SHITLOAD OF CUSTOMERS FOR WINTER 2008 JUST BECAUSE YOU ADDED THE DAMN STRAP TO THE SHOE :] I HOPE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING

  16. if we BOYCOTT JOrdan brand maybe they'll start releasing good shoes again, Oh how I wish they never hired Gentry. PLEASE STOP MESSING UP CLASSICS

  17. y yall bitchin all u gotta do is take the muthafukin strap off the shoe thats all then it would look like the og's

  18. i believe Brand Jordan get's a massive charge out of breakin my spirits,you know, throughout their history of fkn up classics and samples and homosexual fusions, along with the lacking of sizes like 13 or 14 *sigh*, i was expecting, the basic Jordan 1 highs, you know, the one everyone loves, especially 80's babies, i'm still praying for the re release of the metallic series ones, but i guess you can't always get wat u want rite..but n.e way…. and look wat pops out of the Jumpmans rectum..fkn AJ1's WITH A FKN STRAP..if i wanted Vandals, i'd buy fkn vandals!!!!!!!!!!…and if i see another pair of AJ1 mids, i'll go on a massive religious massacre and sacrifice myself to the lord!!!!!!!!!!!!

    imma just go back to foamposites and dunks!!!!!

  19. another reason to jus use my sneaker stash bread on the countdown packs….thanks for fucking up a classic YET AGAIN!!!!!..imma make myself feel better by watchin Jordan's cradle dunk against the Knicks in 1984…so cool

  20. first thing’s first… the strap-on… who the fukk wants a strap on a Jordan 1, except maybe those who are into ‘strap-ons’. MJ never used a strap-on; maybe with a couple hoes…who knows. IMO, the only Jays that get ‘strap-on’ love are the carpet tongues. period. These kids designing for JB now are fukkin homos. Get them outta there. They’re doin too much. Go get a job at Bape or greedy genius

  21. IF U GUYS DON'T DIG IT, DON'T COP IT BITCHES. BUNCH OF WHINY ASS LITTLE FAGOTS!

    DON'T CLOWN ON JORDAN AND HIS TEAM. HE'S THE REAL REASON WHY WE HAVE NIKE DUNKS THESE DAYS KIDS. IF IT WASN'T FOR THE JORDAN 1, THERE WILL NEVER BE NIKE DUNKS.

    IF YOU READ YOUR HISTORY, IF IT WASN'T FOR JORDAN, NIKE WOULDN'T BE AS BIG AS IT IS TODAY.

    PAY YOUR RESPECTS FAGS. IF U DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T BUY IT! THAT SIMPLE!

  22. i cant really say anything at this poin cuz its always the same all u peoplea re like eww wtf jb this and that and when the finest prdouct is showed ur like not bad prolly cop this and that so im have to see the final result

  23. IF U GUYS DON'T DIG IT, DON'T COP IT BITCHES. BUNCH OF WHINY ASS LITTLE FAGOTS!

    DON'T CLOWN ON JORDAN AND HIS TEAM. HE'S THE REAL REASON WHY WE HAVE NIKE DUNKS THESE DAYS KIDS. IF IT WASN'T FOR THE JORDAN 1, THERE WILL NEVER BE NIKE DUNKS.

    YIZZZIRR!!!

  24. NO STRAP ON AJ1S WAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PPL . THINK ABOUT IT ITS THE FIRST AIR JORDAN LEAVE IT ALONE I WAS LOOKN 4WARD 2 THE BLACK AND REDS BUT THEY CANT PUT THE STRAP ON…. NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. damn. i was excited 4 the black/red release, but idk nemore.. not sure about the strap.. but, cant make a definite decision til i c a finished product. itll probly come out hot (fingers crossed.)

  26. first of all…if you guys want to get mad at somebody from jordan brand, get mad at gentry humphrey. He’s the one that said that all j’s that come out again (retroed) will look different from the j’s that came out back then. That’s why the 5’s and 8’s have that cheap suede….why? for 2 reasons….

    1.Jordan doesn’t play ball no more so that gives jb an excuse to make less expensive suede and leather. (when jordan played ball,he wanted the best quality material on his shoes).

    2.Ever since gentry got hired, JB has slacked off on the quality of materials to put on shoes. So he wanted to make it different from the j’s that came out before him. (yall don’t even know that gentry has ORIGINAL j’s locked up in his house……)

  27. it seems like jiggs is da only person on here wit some sense…personaly i neva liked da 1’s…they flat as hell…

  28. I'm not gonna judge these until I actually see the real shoe and not the drawings, but it looks like the black/red low 1's will be dope

  29. that da shoe prince is so full of shit…. why wouldnt he have any of the jordans 16-22??

    i hate people who get on here and pretend like they have all these shoes when theyre lying.. who cares wat u got!!?

  30. why n the hell would jordan brand put thaT DAMM STRAP ON IT MAKING IT LOOK LIKE SOME DAMM VANDALS WHICJH VANDALS ARE NICE BUT THE FUCKING SHOE LOOKS GOOD WITOUT A STRAP JORDAN BRAND STUPID ASS FUCK PLZ TAKE OF THE STRAP MAKE IT ORIGINAL.

  31. i too dnt agree w/ the strapp.. but i think im likin the white "excessives" or w/e.. nd the exclusive ones r sikk.. but how the fukk r we supposed 2 kno which storez are the top 325's!? i kno like the one in chicago nd the one in oregon r for surr! but i live in vegas… WTF?! haha

  32. and "da shoe prince" ur a fag!!! hahaha jk but naww homie since u got all thm shoez u should gimme sum nigga!! hahaha.. man i wish i was rich.. if i was thn id annihilate all u guyz in the shoe game hahaha

  33. daaaaaaaaaaaaamn see this is why jb keeps messing up the shoes we love cuz of ppl sayin oh its ok just take off the strap! listen if we dnt buy the shoe they will give us wut we want!!!!!! dnt just take off the strap how bout no damn strap at all!!!!!!

  34. yo i'm tired of this bull shit why waste ur money on a shoe that means nothing, they need to get this shoe and stick it straight up GENTRY HUMPHEY ass then it would mean something and i agree with real 2 da game

  35. 23's are WACK!!!!!!

    Those are some damn FUGLY SHOES nehow. U would buy the 23's but not these. SOOOO STUPID!

  36. Just when i thought they were gonna bring back classic j's, they add a strap and make another one low cut.Why?

  37. DONT BUY THESE SHOES!!!!!..

    so we can teach JB or Gentry A huge lesson that j's with straps will not sell.even if the strap is removable it will still look like theres a strap due to the place where the strap was held at.

    and why the 325 stores?.it shouldve just been a quickstrike or lifestyle release.those exclusive 1's look nothing special.

  38. can some of idiots read it says air jordan 1 hi retro not air jordan 1 fusion therefore these are suppose to be jordan 1 retros but they been added a stupid strap i wouldnt be so mad if they were a vandalxjordan fusion but why fuck up a classic smh @ JB

  39. ^^if you are referring to me then go check theshoegame.com….. they just got word that they are fusions retard

  40. DEAR JESUS JB IF YOU ARE READING THIS PLEASE! PLEASE! PLESAE! REMOVE THE STRAP OH GOD REMOVE IT PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON MY EYES YOU HAVE CUT ME DEEP ITS AMAZING THAT CAN TYPE THIS AFTER SEEING THAT CLASSIC TURNED INTO SOMETHING THAT BLINDED ME WITH ITS TERRIBLE ADDITION OF THE STRAP

  41. The Hihs are cool, but why the "vandal", don't get me wrong the idea is cool, but why not keep it original Big J. Anyway COPPED

  42. ummmm DJ QueerBert…you don't know wat the fuck you're talkin about….the 1's were actually inspired by nike dunk designs, the dunks were already a definate project before the ones even dropped, so regardless, the dunks would still be here today, AND, no ones cuttin on Jordan and his team, were talking about Gentry's lame ass, Jordan doesn't choose the designs, he just sits there during the AJ interviews and endorses the shoes he gets millions of bucks for, so pop the dill out your mouth and go ahead and cop, as an American, which i think you are, you hav the right tho cop, but it will leave a shitty taste in your mouth tho, next time, read a little bit deeper into your "history" before you attempt to gut legitimate sneakerheads..and i kno ur not a sneakerhead, we're harsh critics, ur a pussy 😉

  43. The Phats are cool too, It'ii look cool with the skateboardin stuff that I wear, but I won't fuck em up skating though.

  44. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  45. I’m not gonna judge these until I actually see the real shoe and not the drawings, but it looks like the black/red low 1’s will be dope

  46. well Soletaker if you wouldve stated that earlier then i wouldve never said the comment i did dickhead

  47. If you ask me the Highs with the straps look like the nike air revolution. I think I would like these more if the real/or sample shoe was shown.

  48. jordan brand co. has nothing better else to think of but, to frankenstein all the numbered jordans together..u know put them all together like the spizikes.i personally did not get a pair i think they suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck…… fuck the mixes and shit numberd jordans to me is awsome love and peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Though the spizikes re cool, this mixing of jordans is getting way out of hand , look at the 6ix ring joints. WTF,man,W….T…..F.

  50. HATERS stay away, You all hate on these new styles and colorways, but that doesnt stop you from buying them all up and reselling, screwing up the market.

  51. I FUCKING HATE THE STRAP! WHO ELSE AGREES? ALL I EVER WANTED WAS A RETRO SIMILAR TO THE 94s BUT WHAT IS THIS SHIT?

  52. Hey tob I feel the same way about the strap, Don't get me wong the air jordan 1 is and will always be a classic, but the strap kind of messed it up. But I'm still gonna COPP. what bo you guys thik about the Great Nurse Jordan 5 Fusion Joints?

  53. if you complain you can't rock em, for everyone else, be proud. regardless ina million years watch, they'll pop up and be worth houndreads. p.s. it's the truth

  54. all them are fresh but I still have 2 see the real shoe before I decide,I jus bought the baseball jordan 1's, errbody didn't know the ones was coming back out,

  55. waaahhhhhhhhhhhh i cant believe this…. i was really excited when i read the AJ1s were re-releasing winter 08 … didnt expect they would do any changes on em… this is super retarded!

  56. I love the all red ones. A must cop!

    And the value of my '94 bred 1's will remain intact with these new retros. They're so ugly with that strap.

  57. I always wanted the air jordan 1 in the Playoff colorway, esoecially the highs. I remember watching MJ play in them in th 90's. The phats and highs are both Copped.

  58. yall some funny ass characters on here yall gonna talk shit about the shoe and when it comes out yall type a different name and yall like the shoe big fuckin deal it has a strap all yall like is the same old fuckin shit over and over again yall cop kicks to collect them i cop them to wear them and when they get used up i throw them the fuck out the ecsessive 1s look hot as shit big deal it has a fuckin strap like i said all yall do is stick to the same old shit im not saying dont re retro the 1s witch in a countdown pack they will but go ahead mix shit up a bit we including me are copping basketball sneakers from a guy who retired from basketball a long fuckin time ago so im just coppin for looks cause they look nice dont get me wrong jordan best basketball player ever hands down but cmon yall its a fuckin strap get over it and yaselves yall call yourselves jordan fans and sneakerheads than yall should inbrace this im surprised they aint put a strap on this shoe a whiles back like when the old love new love came out but yeah calm dowqn oh yall really want to hate me the hare 7s are fuckin ugly as shit there fuckin plain just a plain ass boring shoe im not gonna ride dick like some of yall just cause yall suckin between the junpman logos legs but yup ugly as hell its a plain ass shoe only good to ball in and with a white base color it will get dirty on the court quick……
