The important thing to know about collecting Air Jordan models is that the differences can be subtle. Take for instance the Rare Air Collection of the Air Jordan 1, that is set to release in this awesome Cool Grey colorway.

The colorway itself is more than noteworthy, as it employs one of the silhouettes most popular blocking of all time as a black tongue and toe are backed by cool grey on the mudguard, lace plate, wings and heel. White falls into play on the mid panel and outsole to complete the sheme, and a tonal Nike Air hit can be found on the heel. That hit along with the Rare Air splashed on the ankle are the subtle adds that signal you to these being something different than usual.

This Cool Grey style of the Air Jordan 1 Rare Air will be available at select Nike retailers on January 17th.
