Jordan 1 Reverse Panda: Everything We Know So Far
Lately, numerous teasers and heckles have been popping up regarding the Air Jordan 1 Reverse Panda. But now, we have the close-up.
Generally, the Air Jordan 1 will NEVER go out of style even though it’s been around for almost 40 years. Jordan Brand manages to drop a lot of Jordan 1s every year, and they always do it with confidence that their fans will love it. And they almost always do. Whenever we think they must be out of ideas for new color schemes, they prove us wrong. They continue to pay special attention to their AJ 1 sneaker model throughout the years and reveal numerous retro colorways upon the silhouette.
The giant Swoosh label has gained the attention of its shoppers through various strategies. However, the major reason behind the label’s success is its thriving partnership with the great basketball player Michael Jordan. One which has been ongoing since 1984. The duo’s partnership has produced the Air Jordan line, which rules the sneaker market. The resell market to be more specific. Especially with Yeezys out of the picture lately!
The brand kicked off the Air Jordan sneaker family with the release of the Air Jordan 1 in 1985. The shoe was designed by Peter Moore, a Swoosh label sneaker designer, and veteran. The sneaker worked as a bridge that connected the sneaker world with the basketball world.
Jordan Brand’s latest creation: The Air Jordan 1 Reverse Panda.
Let’s talk anatomy. Think of this colorway as the counterpart to the Nike Dunk Low “Reverse Panda”. Just like the “Panda” color scheme, the “Reverse Panda” is a mix of Black and White, which immediately attracts the attention of sneakerheads.
The perforated toe box, side panels, and cuffs feature are made of black leather. Additionally, the ball-and-wings logo is also expressed in black. While the rest of the features come in perfect white. We’re talking about the Swoosh, heel, laces, and tip. As for the base, we’re looking at a black rubber outsole, beneath a white midsole.
This contrast creates a very interesting look that definitely makes it stand out next to the original “Panda” model. I mean, yes it’s another black-and-white shoe, but it’s definitely something exciting for fans who don’t care about colorful offerings.
Unfortunately, we don’t yet have a confirmed release date from the Jumpman himself. But according to Kicksonfire, it’s March 2nd, 2024. However, what we do know is it’s gonna retail for $180 USD at select Jordan retailers and the Nike SNKRS app.
That said, we will likely find out more about these kicks in the near future. So stay tuned to TSB and never miss a drop!
