5. Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG “Royal Toe”

A classic silhouette in a classic colorway, the Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG “Royal Toe” has proven to be an unwavering staple in a sneakerhead’s wardrobe. The colorway has subsequently been reinvented in numerous silhouettes because of the color-blocking aspects that make the pair stand out.

6. Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High “White”

Probably a dream pair for many sneakerheads, the Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High “White” was frequently spotted on-foot by Sik-K during both his official and private schedules.

Clean white uppers contrasted by the Off-White’s signature quotation marks and zip-tie provides a diverse range of styling options, including the pastel-themed outfit that Sik-K matched with in the above image.
