Air Jordan 1 Low

The Air Jordan 1 Low is a lifestyle sneaker from Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of NIKE, Inc. Debuted in 1985, the model has historically served as a casual take on Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker, the high-top Jordan 1.

At a glance, the sneaker resembles the Nike Dunk Low, which has experienced a surge in popularity since 2019. Both models are rooted in performance-basketball, and were designed by Peter Moore. The Jordan 1 Low isn’t as coveted as its “doppelgänger,” but it’s historically boasted a similar knack for bold color-blocking, playful themes and experimental construction. Additionally, the silhouette is among the cheapest Jordans, with a retail price of $90 USD (adults), $75 USD (big kids), $60 USD (little kids) and $45 USD (toddlers).

Despite launching in 1985 at the inception of the Air Jordan line, the sneaker has since largely deviated from its original design. “NIKE AIR” branding on the tongue has commonly been replaced with Jumpman logos, while the line’s wings insignia has moved to the lower heel from the ankle tab. “OG”-distinguished, special editions of the low-top Jordan 1 deliver the aforementioned details, but for a higher premium. Pairs have also been scarce, with collaborators the likes of Travis Scott and Dior being among the select few to reintroduce Moore’s original design.

Throughout 2024, NIKE, Inc. seems poised to return the sneaker to 1985 form without relying on collaborations. In the Jordan Holiday release slate, JB is reported to be bringing the Low back in “Shadow,” “Game Royal” and “Neutral Grey” looks that harken to original AJ1 colorways. In the meantime, there’s always a bevy of readily available releases each and every month, ensuring the 36-year-old design assists the Air Jordan collection in maintaining the title of most successful athlete-specific line ever.

Even looking ahead to 2025, the Jordan 1 Low remains a focus. Fan favorite editions like the “Mocha” and “Royal” are set to be released as low-cut takedowns, both expected to attract high demand when they come about.
