There’s nothing like a delayed release to whip up a frenzy in the sneaker world. Well, that only applies when the sneaker itself is coveted enough to wait for, and the Nike Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred certainly is. Landing on December 30 as the last of Jordan Brand’s 2021 Holiday lineup, it’s the cherry on top of a year worth remembering for the imprint.

Since its first unveiling in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 Bred has gained an almost mythical power in the sneakerverse. Dubbed the ‘Banned’ sneaker because it didn’t abide by the NBA’s rule that shoes must match the uniform, the iconic black & red (Bred) colorway has always been a trailblazer for the Jordan brand.

This drop sees a refreshing variation on the style, though. Regular leather uppers make way for polished patent leather versions, giving the Jordan 1 Patent Bred a luxurious new look which is sure to help out when it comes to styling.

How much does the Nike Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred cost?

The Nike Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred retails for a price of $170 but if you’ve missed out on the drop or want some kind of security that you’ll be able to bag a pair, be sure to get your certified-authentic pair from StockX. Currently selling for an average price of $426, it’s an investment, but judging from the popularity and collectability of this pair, it’s a price worth paying if you’re a true fan of the Jordan 1 Patent Bred.

If, on the other hand, you'd rather pay $1 for your Patent Breds, then listen up. Until 12PM ET today, you can enter the ReStockX for the silhouette by placing a bid of just $1 ($2 in Canada) here. Four lucky winners will be picked at random.

Release date: December 30, 2021 Price: $170 Brand: Nike Model: Air Jordan 1
