The Air Jordan 1 will always be one of the most iconic Jordan silhouettes of all time, so it's no wonder why there's always so much hype for new colorways.

Next month, we'll be getting another brand new Air Jordan 1 colorway. You can check out the details below and see how you can customize your own pair of Jordan 1s ahead of this drop.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Obsidian University Blue colorway is clean as is, but, if you want some more color, take a look at these for some inspiration.

These customs by sponsored artist @astrotorfcustoms use a unique yellow, white, red, and blue color scheme to make them stand out from the rest of the Air Jordan 1 colorways.

If you want to change up the design aesthetic of your 1s, try out this sketch effect made by sponsored artist @astrotorfcustoms.

All you need to create this sketch effect is some cleverly placed white and black accents. 

Grab some paint for yourself to give this effect a try without changing the color scheme on your 1s.
