Air Jordan 1 Retro Black/Varsity Royal 2001 vs 2013

A side by side comparison between the two black and royal Air Jordan 1 Retro's.
On February 16th, 2013 the original black and royal colorway of the Air Jordan I made its highly anticipated return. The last time we saw them was back in October of 2001 when the Air Jordan 1 Retro was released for the second time (1994 being the first). Originally released in 1985, it took Jordan Brand sixteen years to retro them for the first time and then another twelve to re-retro them. The 2001 edition was true to the OG featuring "Nike Air" insignia on them however, they were made into a mid-cut rather than a high like the originals. The 2013 edition is an "OG" edition featuring "Nike Air" insignia and, came in a true to the OG, high cut for the first time since 1985.

Here is a side-by-side comparison featuring both retro releases of the Air Jordan I in black and royal. The Air Jordan 1 Retro black and royal blue originally released in October of 2001 and, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG in black, varsity royal and black released in February of 2013. Enjoy the detailed images below and if you're looking for either of these releases you can click here to grab a pair on eBay.
