While a lot of people wished we could’ve gotten the OG Royals instead, the new Dark Marina Blue colorway isn’t really that bad. The shoe follows up on the color blocking started by the Shadow 2.0 from the past year and then followed up by the Pollens. For this rendition, Black and Blue make up the leather upper. Let’s check out the details.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG Retro Dark Marina Blue features black hues on the vamp, quarter, tongue, and collar panels; while blue covers the toe, eye stays, heel, and Swoosh logos. It comes with white extra laces for those who feel like mixing things up a little bit.
In terms of leather quality, Jordan Brand uses smooth leather but with a better quality than the one used on the Nike Dunks.
Released in February 2022, the new colorway became a must-cop for a lot of sneaker heads; and the resell value isn’t that high as well - which delighted those who are looking to cop a pair.
To conclude, the Air Jordan 1 High Dark Marina Blue is one of the better J1 releases in 2022. Stay tuned for more Air Jordan 1 releases this year if you missed out on a pair.
