Sneaker Sunday: Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Obsidian”

When I saw leaked images of these, I knew I had to have them.  1/3 Carolina blue, 1/3 Obsidian blue and 1/3 Sail; it's like these kicks were made specifically for my preferred color pallette.  Sure, I might bleed green but I look best in blue. The oversaturation of Jordan 1 releases the past few … Continue reading Sneaker Sunday: Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Obsidian”
