The only way you can do better than an Air Jordan 1 is by adding a little Zoom to the mix. The number 1 in the Air Jordan portfolio is vast and eclectic, perfect for a fan base with a wide and varied taste in sneakers; adding a little touch of groundbreaking trainer tech is all gravy.

With the new Racer Blue colourway fans are treated to an understated but brilliant looking high-top that is going to be a must cop in time for summer. Fans have already been waiting a while for the Racer Blue colourway to drop after seeing a teaser in 2019’s ‘Fearless Ones’ pack back in December.

For the new look Nike have stuck with the classic 85 style for the retro look. Only this time we’ve been treated to a few new upgrades. First off is the new transparent ankle flaps with a raised wings icon across the “Zoom” branded tabs.

The new look may go down well with the style fans but the new tech is here to bring unparalleled comfort and control. The layered, premium leather is built up to reinforce the structure and the toe box has been perforated in order to push air freely around the inside of the shoe to improve ventilation and keep your feet cool.

The colourway of racer Blue and Pure platinum blended with the transparent mesh create a look that will slide easily into anybody’s rotation. The new Nike Air Jordan 1 Racer Blue drops on March 14. You can cop your own using the Nike SNKRS app or you can head to Laced’s online trainers platform after release date to get great prices on the resale market.

We expect the new look to sell out in no time so make sure you get ready for the 8am release. The AJ1 Racer Blue is available at $175 (£154.95).
