The A$AP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo is inspired by ‘90s skate and rave culture.

The wait is just about over. Jordan Brand will finally be releasing the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Rookie Of The Year this upcoming weekend. It is just me does this colorway of the Air Jordan 1 continued to look better and better the more you look at it?
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Rookie Of The Year pays tribute to the outfit that Michael Jordan wore at the press conference where he accepted the 1985 Rookie of the Year Award. Featuring a gold harvest and black theme, the sneaker is contrasted with white tumbled leather on the upper. Highlighting the model is a detached layer on the ankle collar featuring MJ’s rookie stats and a hidden message by MJ himself that says, “This award is nice, but I just feel it is very important for each individual to go out and contribute to his team.”
The size? x Asics Gel Saga Balloon Fiesta pays homage to the Japanese event by giving the shoe a colorful upper made out of a ripstop material made to represent a Hot Air Balloon’s Envelope. Balancing out the bold motif is the Deep Black suede placed on the shoe’s overlays said to represent the material inspired by the gloves worn by pilots to avoid the scorching heat of the Burners. Another feature worth mentioning is the alternating colored GEL SAGA lettering on the heel counter, the leather on the side stripes, White midsole, Red and Black outsole and a multi-Balloon print graphic on the insoles.
