The highly anticipated Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Skyline is set to officially release on April 8th on the Nike SNKRS App and at select Jordan brand retailers. However, Jordan Brand enthusiasts on the East Coast will have the opportunity to purchase the pair a week early as popular New York sneaker boutique Extra Butter has gone to their Instagram to let Jordan fans know that they will be releasing the pair early Friday, March 31st as Jordan Brand's exclusive East Coast partner. The pair will be available in both of Extra Butter's New York locations only, first come, first served.
Extra Butter New York will be hosting an early launch event for the pair. Their Lower East Side location will feature a full takeover retail experience, featuring a custom-made photo station that will allow Jordan enthusiasts to recreate their own Skyline dunk imagery, just like Michael Jordan in the original Jordan 1 promotional poster in 1985. Since Extra Butter's establishment in 2007, the sneaker boutique has been able to attract sneaker enthusiasts from all across the country and has been a go-to destination for consumers to purchase the latest and greatest Jordan sneakers. With a focus on high quality and diligence, the store has been able to establish itself as a trustworthy and reliable source for sneaker consumers looking to keep up with the latest sneaker releases.
Taking inspiration from the OG Jordan 1 promotional poster, The Air Jordan 1 Retro High Skyline is a stunning take on one of the most iconic and groundbreaking sneakers of our time. The white leather base of the sneaker perfectly complements the denim overlays, which are colored in a bright vivid orange that beautifully transitions into true blue and iced lilac, reminiscent of the skyline photo from the original Air Jordan 1 campaign poster. The midsole is elegantly crafted in sail, while the outsole is a sophisticated black. The Swoosh and ankle collar are finished off in black as well, giving a bold contrast to the vibrant gradient of the upper.
You can grab a pair early of the Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Skyline Friday, March 31st for $180 USD at both Extra Butter New York locations exclusively in-store, or online on the Nike SNKRS App and at select Jordan Brand retailers on April 8th.
