Satin Jordan I’s: A Luxe Take On The Original

If you’ve heard it from us once, you’ve heard it from us a thousand times. Now that we’re over a thousand articles, there’s a damn good chance we’ve said it nearly a thousand times: we love Jordan I’s. From the OG’s to new colorways, from simple GR’s to rare collabs, we love em’ all. They’re our favorite shoes ever.

So you already know we were gassed when the Breds (our favorite shoe ever) dropped in an extra-luxe satin style last year (to honor the “banned” release), and we’re hype again, as it’s been officially announced that the Royals will be receiving the satin treatment as well.

The Jordan I has always been an extra-luxe shoe. Why do you think high fashion houses draw so much inspiration from it? Look at the Saint Laurent SL10 if you’re in need of an example. Satin is an extra-luxe material when it’s done correctly. Therefore, this makes absolutely perfect sense. There’s no official word on when these will be dropping yet, but as the Royals (which we’ll need two pairs of) will be releasing in April, we wouldn’t be terribly surprised if Jordan Brand blesses us with another satin hyperstrike to go along with the release.

These are a must-have for any Jordan I fan, and you already know we’ll be fiending for a pair when they release. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any relevant news and information pertaining to the release, so be sure to keep it locked right here!
