Initially released in 1985, the “Metallic Blue” Air Jordan 1 Low 85 is set to receive retro treatment in the spring of 2024 as a reissued variant.
Last seen in 2016, the “Metallic Blue” Air Jordan 1 Low is getting the much-lauded “85” treatment for the first time. The high-top variant, which first appeared again in February 2020, had a makeover reasonably similar to this one.
Embellished with a Summit White, Navy, and White color scheme, the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Low 85 Metallic Blue is expected to look similar to the original. The shoe will feature a White leather top accompanied by similar nylon tongues. Metallic embellishments on the swoosh logo and heel tabs enhance the shoe’s navy blue color scheme. Navy accents include the “Nike Air” branding on the tongue and the rubber outsole; a Summit White midsole rounds off the design.
Expect the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 Metallic Blue to drop at select Jordan Brand shops and Nike.com in Spring 2024, as shown in the images below. Retail is set for $160.
