Since news of this release broke last year, sneakerheads have been waiting with bated breath for a drop date. Well, it’s finally upon us. The Air Jordan 1 High ‘Black/Varsity Royal’ is one of the most sought after sneakers of 2013. They’ll be in stores next weekend.

With ‘Nike Air’ detailing on the tongue instead of the now customary Jumpman logo, the ‘Black/Varsity Royal’ 1s come laced in a black upper with royal accents within the toe box, rear paneling and Swoosh branding. Priced at $140, look for them at select Jordan accounts on February 16.
