The Air Jordan 1 “Dark Mocha” might just be one of the most sought after GR Air Jordan 1s released in 2020. In case you took an L on Nike SNKRS, End Launches is giving you another chance to cop a pair. Join the raffle before it closes on December 19.
Nike has been breathing new life into its range of retro Air Jordan sneakers. Sneakers like the Air Jordan 1 Lucky Green, Air Jordan 3 Laser Orange and Air Jordan 3 Fire Red are given familiar colorways but with a modern twist by way of new pops of color or fabric.
Next in line is the Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha — a reinterpretation of the classic “Black Toe” color blocking; these also happen to resemble closely the Travis Scott x Nike Air Jordan 1.
Intentional or not, these, like La Flame’s AJ1, get brown nubuck on the ankle collar, white tumbled leather in the toe box and midfoot panels, white nylon tongue and a black Swoosh.
What’s different on the Dark Mocha are the black leather panels around the toebox and eyelets, and of course, the absence of Travis’ reverse Swoosh and Cactus Jack branding on the medial side.
Priced at S$239, the AJ1 Dark Mocha is a good alternative for those who scored an L on the Travis Scott AJ1s and can’t bear to fork out US$1,775 (approx. S$2,385.25) at resale.
