Last year Jordan Brand dropped a special Satin Air Jordan 1 “Banned” — limited to 500 units — following the release of the “Banned” Air Jordan 1. Now it appears JB has another satin set on the way, as here we get our first look at the Satin Air Jordan 1 “Royal.”

Courtesy of social media, we get a glimpse at the highly-coveted kicks, which are believed to be worn by Senior Jordan Brand Design Director Gemo Wong at Agenda in Las Vegas.

The shoe of course boasts the AJ1 “Royal” color scheme, but is outfitted in luxe satin material and features metal eyelets and gold lace tips.

For now, we know that the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” is scheduled for release this April, so the coinciding satin pair may be arriving near that time as well, as with the aforementioned AJ1 “Banned” delivery.

As always, stay tuned for more.
