This Air Jordan 1 Low Is a Work of Art
Release: TBC

There’s a new Air Jordan 1 Low on the way and it’s got some seriously impressive artistic credentials. While its aesthetic seems more inspired by the shoes a painter wears when working, rather than what ends up on the canvas, it’s no less alluring. 

This is a similar vibe to the Blazer Mid and the Air Force 1 that emerged in January this year. Starting with a creamy base on a neat material mix, the design cops a colourful paint splatter across its upper, before brushstroke Swooshes hit the lateral sides for some extra flair.

The AJ1 Low has made a strong start to the year, emerging in a steady stream of colourways since the beginning of 2021. These have included the summery ‘Tropical Twist’, the primo ‘Arctic Pink’, and the intricate ‘Chinese New Year’ design that celebrated the Year of the Ox.

If you’re keen on the low-cut version of MJ’s first signature baller, don’t make the embarrassing mistake of confusing it with the hot shoe-of-the-moment: the Nike Dunk. There are quite a few ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ differences between the Dunk and the Air Jordan 1, while some are a little more obvious. Check out our in-depth analysis here.

Pairs of this speckled masterpiece are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists quite soon. Although you might want to use a drop sheet if these ever make their way into the art room.
