New styles continue to emerge for the Air Jordan 1 Low.
Michael Jordan's inaugural signature sneaker, known for its lifestyle appeal, has successfully blended classic and contemporary aesthetics. Recently, there have been sightings of the sneaker in two distinct outfits designed for the Year of the Dragon.
As we approach 2024, the iconic design by Peter Moore in 1985 has undergone yet another transformation, seemingly influenced by Far East Asian traditions. The shoe features a refreshing combination of "Phantom", "Star Blue", and "Coconut Milk" tones, creating a unique Air Jordan 1.
The upper showcases a mix of suede and leather panels, showcasing the brand's commitment to quality craftsmanship. The lower heel, on the other hand, exudes a refined elegance reminiscent of Nike's previous "Vachetta Tan" releases.
The profile swooshes, however, deviate from the rest of the design with their "Star Blue" denim construction, adorned with intricate contrast stitching. This design element pays homage to the traditional "Sashiko" styles of the Air Jordan line, which draw inspiration from centuries-old Japanese practices.
Maintaining a sophisticated allure, the "Special Edition" (SE) AJ1 Low presents a simplistic yet refined aesthetic. The inclusion of an off-white midsole introduces a touch of antiquity to the design. Moore's renowned radial-patterned outsole, with its semi-translucent brown hue, harmonizes beautifully with the leather accents on the upper and the inner lining.
