'L.A.' Air Jordan 1s Releasing Sooner Than Expected

The 2018 NBA All-Star Game will land in Los Angeles, a locale that Jordan Brand will take advantage of with product releases tied to the city. One of the sneakers releasing for the events next February is this Air Jordan 1, which has a black colorway and a map of the city on the insole.

Not much else has leaked in terms of Los Angeles-inspired product from Jordan for next year, but the “Black/Cement” Air Jordan 3 with Nike Air branding on the back is said to release for All-Star weekend.

Jordan had something of hiccup with its 2017 All-Star product, which was designed around the game's original location of Charlotte, North Carolina, before the NBA relocated it to New Orleans. Jordan in turned pivoted its presentation of the product, shifting the stories around the “Time to Shine” collection.

Update 12/08/2017: New images have been revealed courtesy of s.sam.group.

Update 01/02/2018: Official images of the “L.A.” Air Jordan 1 have leaked via J23. While originally expected to drop for NBA All-Star Weekend 2018, the sneaker release date for this shoe has been confirmed by retailers for 01/10/2018.
