Released in December of 2014, the Air Jordan 1 Retro 4Lab1 Tropical Teal was the first 4Lab1 to hit retail shelves. It did so in bold fashion with its Tropical Teal colorway and, as with the entire Lab series, picking a crucial design element from another Air Jordan model to expand on. This Air Jordan 1 Retro 4Lab1 chose the iconic and historic netting from the Air Jordan 4. Thus, this shoe flaunts an upper that is entirely covered in the very same mesh which hides the traditional Air Jordan 1 design elements like the instantly recognizable side panels and overlays. Another important styling cue borrowed from the AJ4 is the big Flight branding that is placed on the tongues of this Air Jordan 1 Retro. Some notable details on this shoe include the upside down Air Jordan patches behind the tongue, the black stitching along the midsole, and the aptly cushioned solid rubber cupsole that has an Air unit embedded in the heel. Black laces and a black inner lining tie this AJ1 together nicely. The translucent teal outsole also pops and offers a different look than any other Air Jordan 1 Retro can offer. If you're looking for something limited and unique, the Air Jordan 1 Retro 4Lab1 Tropical Teal is right up your alley.
