Where to buy Nike’s Air Jordan 1 Obsidian sneakers
Want to get your hands on a pair of the university-inspired kicks?
In celebration of the very first Air Jordan 1 silhouette, Nike has just dropped a new Obsidian colourway that fans are going to want to get their hands on immediately. Inspired by Michael Jordan's former university days, the latest sneakers have amassed a huge amount of hype online and, at time of writing, have already sold out on the Nike site.
So, if you don't want to miss out on grabbing yourself a pair, where can you shop the new kicks? Well, StockX is currently looking like your best bet, along with DHgate.com. Stadium Goods also has the Obsidians in stock, but be prepared to pay a hefty price for them. The site is listing the sneakers at varying prices of between $422 and $642, where the aforementioned stores will let you nab them for under $300 a pair.
The latest sneaker iteration arrives in a classic colourway that pays homage to Jordan's alma mater. A light powder blue appears on both the heel and collar flaps, while a dark obsidian hue is featured on the collar itself, as well as on the eye stays, laces and lateral Swoosh. The two blue tones are contrasted with a white sail base and white midsole to round out the design.
Ever since Michael Jordan first wore a pair of the Air Jordans on the court in 1985, the sneakers have been one of Nike's most well-known silhouettes. The high profile nature of the sneakers means that each drop is highly sought after, making it no surprise that this latest edition is already wildly popular.
If you do want to get a pair of Jordans, but aren't up to fighting the masses for this particular pair, you can shop a range of other iterations from the Nike online store, as well as from other stockists such as JD Sports.
