It’s no secret that Jordan Brand is a hot ticket right now and silhouettes like the Air Jordan 1 are more popular than ever. As we welcome summer with open arms, there’s no time like the present to add some fresh new kicks to your collection and the momentum surrounding the AJ1 is undoubtedly set to continue with the upcoming release of the “Light Fusion Red” colourway.

The sneaker world is currently preoccupied with the likes of “University Blue” and “Hyper Royal” which offer a stark contrast to the bright and bountiful tones featured on this new iteration. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Light Fusion Red” features a white leather base that has been overlaid with leather construction in a titular red hue that both manage to contrast very nicely against one another. The vibrancy is enhanced even further with a ‘laser orange’ colour on the signature Nike Swoosh and collar which brings us imagery of fire and flames.

Black details bring the colourway back down to earth with subtler aspects along the lining, tread, tongue label and Wings Insignia that feature the darkened hue. This dazzling iteration of the Air Jordan 1 is sure to catch the eye of onlookers and the flame colour scheme only solidifies this colourway as a summer must-have.

We’re only just able to take a look at official imagery for the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Light Fusion Red”, however eager sneakerheads will be glad to know that the colourway is set to drop on June 21st with select retailers and Nike SNKRS. Like most iterations of the AJ1 released around summer-time, you’ll need to be quick to stand a chance of copping a pair on release day.
