Due to the forced cancellation of Olympics this year many sneaker which were to be dropped this year have suffered delays. Many exclusive sneakers were to be dropped given the Olympics that were to be held this year in Tokyo , Japan.
Olympics are suspended till August 2021 for now and Jordan’s celebratory sneakers that were to be dropped like the Air Jordan 3 “Tokyo”, and the reissue of the Metallic Silver Nike Air Jordan 1 from 2001’s “Japan Pack”have been delayed.
The Jordan 1 “Midnight Navy ” Reissue is one of the most important sneaker in the history of J 1’s.
The Japan Pack plays an important role beacuse it is the first pack introduced in non-original colorways of the Air Jordan 1 High to the market. Secondly, the “Japan” pack was the very first country-exclusive Air Jordan 1 release. And finally, Jordan Brand moved away from a traditional shoebox to house the releases in special briefcase-like packaging. The pack consisted of four Japan-exclusive colorways, each limited to a small batched release.
The Neutral Grey/White/Metallic Silver was limited to just 2001 pairs, while this White/Midnight Navy-Metallic Silver and the pack’s Black and White drops each received a 3000 pair production.
With so many exclusivities of the Japan Pack it is an important one for the OG sneakerheads. This sneaker slightly deviates from the original sneaker as in Nike Air embroidery replaces the OG’s Jumpman, whilst the blue upper appears to be more of nubuck than suede.
The sneaker is scheduled to drop this year in coming months for a retails price of $170.
