Without a doubt, this Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Hyper Royal' is in a league of its own. The question isn't, "Who's trying to cop?" It's who's not trying to? It officially releases on April 17th at 08:00 BST.
Towards the final quarter of last year, mockups and images leaked, teasing this Air Jordan 1 'Hyper Royal' as a Spring 2021 drop. In the sneaker community, this colourway was already going toe to toe against the Air Jordan 1 'University Blue', with sneakerheads insisting it was the better drop out of the two.
Like many Jordan 1s, it plucks some inspiration from another model with a similar style; the Air Jordan 1 'Turbo Green'. A white leather middle and toe box sit surrounded by a pale washed blue suede with muted hints of white and grey.

Distinct royal blue stitching matches the 'Nike Air' logo tab on the tongue and insole. A subtle light smoke grey provides the finishing touches on the swoosh, outsole, and ankle, taking on the role of the third colour to complete the colour scheme.
Fortunately, the sneaker God's have listened to your prayers; this silhouette will drop in Men's and Grade School sizes. Now's your chance to make this Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Hyper Royal' a late Easter present to yourself or someone else. Enter a raffle ahead of the April 17th release.
