Official Images: Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Aluminum’
The Jordan Brand colourway wheel of fortune often spits out questionable combinations of mass market models like the Air Jordan 1, but every now and again something real nice comes through. For example, this upcoming low-cut edition in ‘Aluminum’ is sure to please the sort of crowd that considers Honestly, Nevermind to be a revolutionary house music album.
So, what exactly is ‘Aluminum’ in the Nike colour guide? Despite its name, it is not some silvery shade. In fact, it couldn’t be anywhere further away: it’s actually light blue, reminiscent of other popular colours like ‘University Blue’ or ‘Carolina Blue’. These colours, of course, are closely associated with the alma mater of the player that the shoes are named after. Drop that fun fact in the next TikTok sneaker unboxing video.
Paired up with white leather inlays, padded nylon tongues and clean rubber midsoles, this simple combination is a sure winner for its intended market. Such is the popularity of straightforward pairs like this that it’ll probably go to raffles by the time they land at retailers.
Expect to see the Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Aluminum’ arrive at most retailers in coming weeks during the warmer months.
