With the excitement around the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG as feverish as ever after the recent release of the “Neutral Grey” colorway, another brand-new Air Jordan 1 is now set to release: the Hornets-inspired “Turbo Green.” Although this new makeup does feature the same “SP 19 Air Jordan 1 High OG” branded hit on its lateral quarter as its aforementioned counterpart, that’s where the similarities end. A mix of supple white leather and soft sail suede are used for the base, while the overlays and Swoosh are dressed in a “Turbo Green” suede that toes the line between light blue and seafoam green masterfully. A finishing pop of style is then provided by the purple-and-yellow embellishments on the tongue badge, and a trifecta of lace options allow the wearer to add their own personal twist. These new AJ1s will release February 15th — right as NBA All-Star 2019 festivities kick off in earnest — so check out a store list below to see where you can acquire a pair for your collection.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG

Color: Turbo Green/White-Sail-Light Smoke Grey
Style Code: 555088-311
Jordan Brand has just released a pair of Air Jordan 1 Mids dedicated to hardcore Lakers fans. Perfect for those still dreaming about the 2002-era three-peat days, the AJ1 Mid features the team’s signature yellow color across the upper panels of the shoe, outsole bottom, and on the Jordan tongue label. Royal Purple makes its way onto the insoles, shoelaces, and on the small Jumpman logo.
While the AJ1 Mid is not the most sought after model, the connection between this shoe’s colorway and the Los Angeles Lakers home jersey is sure to score points in the emotional department — you could also cop these to show some support to the current LeBron James-era Lakers.
Laker Nation-heads can find these over at nike.com in time for the NBA All-Star Game, retailing for $120 USD.
