If you’ve been in sneakers for a while, you may remember the Air Jordan 1 “Japan” that released in 2001 and now the sneaker is set to make an anticipated return this year.

Debuted in 2001, this Air Jordan 1 was a Japan-exclusive and only saw a release of 2,001 pairs. While we don’t know if the sneaker will be kept as limited as once before, I think it’s a general consensus from the community that they aren’t.

This Air Jordan 1 will arrive in a Neutral Grey, White and Metallic Silver colorway for a premium as possible build. The upper feature Grey textile leather on the side paneling and toe overlay while featuring Metallic Silver on the toe, ankle, heel and Nike Swoosh logo on the side paneling. “Nike Air” tongues are the only difference the new updated version sees from the 2001 edition that released 19 years ago.


The Air Jordan 1 “Japan” is expected to release this Summer in August at select retailers and Nike.com for a retail price of $170. Take a look at the first look below and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for updates and more of the latest sneaker news.
