The new Air Jordan 1 Retro 89 sneakers from Nike take elements from the iconic design of the original Air Jordan 1 shoes. With bright red leather, a gorgeous mashup of gray and white for the sole and the perfect shade of gray for the laces holder, these kicks are definitely a statement piece.

The iconic Nike logo is shown on the sides with a contrasting effect as it sits on top of a well-designed mesh side panel. With speckled detailing and the famous 'Flight' logo on the tongue, it's evident that much of the design was influenced by the popular Air Jordan IV sneaker. The red, white, gray and black theme for the 'Air Jordan 1 Retro 89' sneakers is easily one of the best designs to come from 'Nike' in awhile.
