A History of Satin Air Jordan 1's

The Air Jordan 1 has been receiving the satin treatment since 2016. Velvet overlays helped created a new dimension of hype surrounding this classic silhouette. Typically releasing in extremely limited quantities, there's always a large chance that you'll take an L on release day. Those who've been able to secure a pair of Satin Air Jordan 1's are either extremely plugged, celebrities, wealthy, or all 3! Although both the Royal and Bred iterations retail for $175, today they're worth well over $1k in secondary markets. Here's a recap of what you've probably missed out on.
