The past football season has been the most successful one for the Florida Gators in the last decade, who bested the Virginia Cavaliers in last month’s Orange Bowl. While the Dan Mullen-led program still lags behind in rushing yards, among other categories, it joins the Michigan Wolverines and Oklahoma Sooners as the newest football team to get its own Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. Constructed with the same Bespoke-level materials – namely reptilian textured overlays and stingray leather panels – this pair swaps the crimsons and yellows for the signature “Gators” colors of blue and orange. While the two tones are split across mudguards, profile Swooshes, and other components, they are brought together by the Gators-logo at the tongue that replaces traditional AJ1 branding. Grab a closer look at this player-exclusive pair here below and don’t expect it to drop anytime soon. Your best bet at getting your hands on it may come if you’re currently being scouted by the University of Florida’s coaches.
