Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 1 Low Gel Pack Salutes Two ’70s Nike Silhouettes

Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 1 Low Gel Pack Salutes Two ’70s Nike Silhouettes

Having already previewed both pairs (one originally thought to be a dedication to the Tokyo Games) it turns out that these two Air Jordan 1 Lows fit into a two-piece pack, and together hold some unlikely inspiration. The upcoming pack features inspo that digs deep into Nike’s archives, with the duo focused around 1976’s Astrograbber, and 1978’s Tailwind “Night Track” family and friends exclusive.

First up is a white, black and grey pair inspired by the Astrograbber. Debuting way back in 1976 when Michael Jordan was just entering high school, the Astrograbber was a shoe created to take on turf football fields — a new innovation at the time that was beginning to gain popularity. To salute the Astrograbber’s original construction and color scheme, the AJ1 Low features a sleek upper built from white mesh and grey suede that’s adorned with a rich black leather Swoosh and tongue branding. Sail midsoles and black outsoles complete the look.

Next arrives a stark metallic silver and red that honors the Tailwind “Night Track.” Although the Tailwind debuted in ‘78 and made its way to the mass market in ‘79, the “Night Track” was a disco-esque friends and family release gifted to pop culture figures like Michael Jackson and David Hasselhoff (pictured below). It was then made available to the general public decades later in 2012. On this AJ1 Low, it’s recreated by a metallic silver upper that blends nylons and leathers. Bold red Swooshes and collar liners offer a signature punch of flair with black branding on the tongue, sail midsoles and black outsoles rounding things off.

The Air Jordan 1 Low “Astrograbber” and “Night Track” will release exclusively here at size? on August 1st, before a global drop touches down on August 15th.
