The Air Jordan 1 gets another updated colorway and one that has served up quite the hype around its release. A lot of the hype stems from their similar resemblance to the limited and popular release, the Black Toe Union Los Angeles pair. While the Union LA pair are striking, you’d have to shell out close to $2,000 to add them to your collection which makes the “Smoke Grey” colorway a much more attractive buy at $170 MSRP.
Behind the Design
This release features Light Grey suede throughout the forefoot, midfoot, and heel. Contrasting White leather is used for the profile panel and toe box while white nylon runs up the tongue. Varsity Red leather with a Black Stamped Wings logo is found on the ankle collar and is set off by Black suede collar underlays. Finishing touches include a black suede swoosh, black soles, and black tongue tags featuring “Nike Air” in Varsity Red. Together, these colors bring a tasteful arrangement to the Air Jordan 1. You get the sense that Jordan Brand wanted to create a subtle but striking shoe and they certainly delivered.
