Release Details: The Air Jordan 1 ‘Prototype’
Release: 24 September 2021

Having first emerged with imagery back in June, there’s now updated release details for the imminent Air Jordan 1 ‘Prototype’. As seen back in the initial reveal, this is an AJ1 with a significant difference, giving wearers the irreversible ability to transform their Air Jordan 1 High into an Air Jordan 1 Low – albeit with the High tongue remaining in place. Which path will you take if you end up with these in your hands?

Part of Jordan Brand’s Fall lineup, the ‘Prototype’ release swaps out the Switch’s zip for a row of perforations, which can be cut to reveal a low-top bolstered with a slab of orange foam. 

Regardless of the cut, the AJ1’s sneaker supremacy has gone relatively unchallenged in recent years. Michael Jordan’s first signature model continues to fuel the modern sneaker zeitgeist, long ago transforming from hardwood hero to lifestyle legend thanks, in part, to its ability to continually evolve with fresh releases like this one.

Pairs of the intriguing Air Jordan 1 ‘Prototype’ are scheduled to land on September 24 via SNKRS and the usual Jordan Brand stockists, including Flight Club and GOAT​.
