Air Jordan 1 High OG 'Prototype' | DC6515-100

At first glance, this Air Jordan 1 colorway doesn't look like anything earth-shattering. But what masquerades as a pretty simple colorway with few specials turns out to be the complete opposite on closer inspection!

But first let's take a look at what materials and colours the new model can offer us:

Roughly speaking, we get the Air Jordan 1 High in a colour combination consisting of white, black, beige and various multi-colour details. The bright white smooth leather base is adorned with beige suede overlays from the toebox to the midfoot area. The heel panels as well as the Swoosh come in black, also made of suede.

The collar of the high-top silhouette comes here with overlays in different shades of blue, while the label tag on the tongue and an additional mini Swoosh on the toebox come in a bright orange.

Let us now turn to the unique details offered to us with this AJ1 and the answer to the perplexing question of whether the Air Jordan 1 High OG 'Prototype' is a low or high top.

The answer is: both!

Here you have the chance to try your hand at it yourself and do a certain kind of customising. A perforated collar, which distinguishes the high-top version from a low-top, gives you the opportunity to cut it away and create an Air Jordan 1 Low with a DIY look. Check out the pictures below to see what the whole thing looks like, or can look like.


The last important detail is the reflective overlays that slightly stand out on the toebox under the beige suede and can also be found on the heel. But see for yourself:
