The Return of the Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe”
As part of Jordan Brand's 2023 "Reimagined" series.
[Update 6 Feb 2023] We hate to be the bringer of bad news, but alas, some things are just not meant to be. While the Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe Reimagined” was earlier purported to release in Holiday 2023, it seems like they will no longer be doing so. Worse still, it might even be scrapped, according to @mr_unloved1s.
But don’t be too upset—ardent Jumpman fans can at least find some solace in the fact that the Air Jordan 1 “Royal Reimagined” might take its place in the Holiday 2023 lineup. Stay tuned as we’ll bring you the latest on both pairs as soon as we get more information.
Following the tremendous success of the Air Jordan 1 High “Lost & Found Reimagined”, more “Reimagined” Air Jordans are reportedly in the works now. We’ve previously gotten confirmation of the Air Jordan 3 “White Cement Reimagined”‘s release; and now, according to trusted sneaker source @jfgrails, 2023 will also see the Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe” join the “Reimagined” lineup.
Early mockups depict this MJ legacy colorway outfitted with premium leather in shades of black, red and Sail—with the toe cap featuring the titular “Black Toe”. Another one of the details that you can expect is the vintage pre-aged aesthetic that was seen on both the “Lost & Found” and AJ3 “White Cement Reimagined”. On top of yellowed midsoles, cracked (but hopefully not moldy) leather will likely also be added.
Take a first look at the pair via mockups in the gallery above while we wait for more release details to stream in.
