Michael Jordan’s competitive drive has been applied to the game of golf for decades. In recent years, the basketball legend’s eponymous brand has made a much more concerted effort in bringing its footwear to the green. For its latest proposition, the Jumpman family has given the Air Jordan 1 Low Golf a “White” and “University Blue” makeover.
A faithful nod to #23’s alma mater, the aforementioned blue isn’t a stranger to the low-top Air Jordan 1, nor its Nike Dunk relative – Eric Koston launched a skate-ready version nearly-identical to the newly-surfaced golf offering as recent as August 2019. Akin to the Low’s original trim, the upcoming pair dons the iconic “Wings” insignia on the upper heel, not the lower section like on non-“OG” takes on Peter Moore’s 1985 design. Smooth leather overlays around the toe, along the tongue and across the heel indulge in fan-favorite “UNC”-appropriate flair; profile swooshes, branding on the tongue and inner-lining follow suit. “GOLF” is printed onto the tongue label and insole, but if collectors decided to remove that detail, the modified-for-the-green traction underfoot would give away the shoes’ purpose.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike.com launch as spring and summer inch closer.
Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Nike Air Max 97 celebrates its 25th anniversary throughout 2022.
