The Air Jordan 1 Low continues to promote Michael Jordan’s off-court legacy years after the legendary athlete retired from the game.
WHERE TO BUY
As the silhouette heads into its 38th anniversary, it’s taken on handfuls of new styles rooted in fashion. For its latest ensemble, Peter Moore’s lifestyle offering has indulged in a dark grey color scheme. The muted hue isn’t new to the Air Jordan 1 line, but its recent appearance is accompanied by bold red stitching. Perhaps part of a larger Nike, Inc. collection, the pair is covered in fabric, abandoning its traditional leather upper construction. Non-standard stitch lines animate the lateral forefoot, as well as the spine. The ruby-colored flair potentially harkens back to Chicago Bulls heritage.
Underfoot, the Jordan 1 Low keeps things simpler in color scheme, but exciting nonetheless. The made-for-basketball sole unit prefers a grayscale finish, but it also enjoys a recycled construction. The design choice further contributes to the Swoosh’s “Move to Zero” initiative, which aims to champion sustainability and see the company become carbon neutral.
Enjoy official photos of the pair ahead, as you wait for a nike.com launch. The low-top retro is priced at $115 USD.
