Jordan Brand is adding a new colorway to its long and infamous line of Air Jordan 1s. The upcoming Air Jordan 1 Obsidian is dropping this Saturday, August 31st for the retail price of $160.
A Little Backstory
Since its debut in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 has been a focal point for the whole community. Breaking the lines between basketball, the street, and the fashion industry. Ever since, Jordan Brand kept on revisiting that timeless silhouette season after another, giving sneakerheads more reasons to not leave the game. And this Saturday your collection could be blessed by the Air Jordan 1 Obsidian, one of the season’s most awaited colorways.
Air Jordan 1 Obsidian
The Air Jordan 1 Obsidian comes dressed in a Sail, Obsidian, and University Blue color combo. Although resembling the ‘UNC Patent’ from February, this colorway lacks patent leather and is constructed with leather. Sail covers the panels, tongue, toe box, and midsole. While the heel and collar overlays are covered in University Blue. For the final touch, Obsidian lands on the overlays, laces, and outsoles.
In addition to the usual Men sizes’ retail price of $160, The Obsidians will be available for purchase in Kids sizes. Those tiny pairs will cost $120.
Release Date: August 31, 2019
Style Code: 555088-140
As for the expected resale price, the Air Jordan 1 Obsidian is currently selling on StockX for over $250. And this value should hold up and these might make you more money in the coming days. As this colorway will release via many raffles, stock will be limited online, and thus competition will skyrocket. And your best chance will probably be copping using a sneaker bot.
