The retail price tag is set at $190 USD.The trend of utilizing patent leather on footwear, including sneakers, had taken off back in 2006 since people had grown tremendously fond of wearing bold and vibrant shoes. Patent leather is often also referred to as PVC, patent vinyl and wet look vinyl, but those are actually not all the same. The origin of patent leather can be traced back to Japanning, which itself refers to the application of hard black varnish onto leather. The process by which patent leather is created today was perfected back in 1818. The latest iteration of the Air Jordan 1 that Jordan Brand has whipped is also entirely made up of patent leather.This pair comes dressed in Black, Anthracite and White. Black covers the patent leather while Anthracite appears on the crackled texture. Despite not being an OG release, the pair features a “Jumpman” logo on the tongue and heel. Additionally ‘Anti-Gravity Machine’ appears on the inner tongue. Finishing off the look is a White midsole and Black rubber outsole.
