The Yin Yang design is essentially a balance of black and white – a fairly popular icon in today’s culture. Air Jordan decides to adopt this simple symbol of harmony in their latest Yin and Yang package, releasing two kicks that are essentially mirror images of each other.
Air Jordan 1 High Premium Essentials
Size Run: Mens
Style Code: 555088-011
Release Date:August 6, 2016
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 555088-011 “011” to keep it short takes the black side of the equation as it is covered mainly in the dark color. The splashes of white can be seen as accents along the edges and the color of the Nike Swoosh and Wings logo. The Swoosh design done in solid black extends all the way to the back, creating a clean line on the heels for that additional poof. Note though that there are no Jumpman icons here, on account of the original silhouette.
Other than black and white, you can also see some red coloring on these shoes – but not much. The red is essentially a Nike tag attached along the edge of the tongue with the words of the brand proudly written on the cloth. Somehow, it manages to add to the overall look of the kicks as it makes the design more distinctive for the wearer.
All in all though, there is no denying that the Yin and Yang Package is on the plain side of the line. There is not much to say about these kicks aside from the fact that they are very classic and look like the kind you can wear anywhere. They are not exactly an in your face design but if you are hoping for something classic – this is IT. If you are not a fan of black though – there is always the white version.
One of the Jordan release dates 2016, the Yin and Yang is available as a package, but not necessarily bought that way. Hence, if you prefer the white to the black, then feel free to purchase just one half of the color combination. Sneaker News puts these kicks for release on the 6th of August this year. Unfortunately, there are rumors that they will only be available through Asian stores so keep your fingers crossed.
Still, if the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 555088-011 is not up to your taste, you can wait a few more months to check out what else Nike has in store for us. At $160 a pair, this Air Jordan 1 Retro is a little expensive compared to other possible releases this year.
