Model: Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred
Drop date: December 30
Approx. price: S$239
An all-time classic: The OG Air Jordan 1 Bred is one of the most recognizable sneakers ever made. The colorway is definitely a fan favorite that continues to resell for high prices decades after the colorway was first unveiled.
The history of ‘Bred’: This black and red colorway was originally banned due to the NBA’s uniform policy, but Michael Jordan continued to wear it on the court and Nike bore the cost of the fines with each appearance. This act of defiance became the hallmark of Jordan’s on-court behavior, which explains his legacy on not just the game, but also on sneaker culture.
A new look: Over the years, the ‘Bred’ colorway has been reimagined multiple times, but this is the first time that it has been given a Patent leather makeover. All panels on the uppers are constructed out of shiny black and red patent leather – a stand-out design as compared to prior Bred Air Jordan 1s. It will even come with a red metallic Jumpman hangtag.
