Released in limited quantities back in 2013, this Air Jordan 1 was built with Black and Gold patent leather upper that was modeled after a rare original sample of the iconic silhouette.

Not to be confused with the “Gold Top 3” colorway, the Air Jordan 1 “Gold Toe” made its debut in 2018 for the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities.
