Drops 10 May 2024
The Air Jordan 1, a cornerstone in the basketball sneaker legacy, has been a prime canvas for such cherished colorways. Though fresh renditions and collaborations have their allure, the charm of original hues from 1985 remains unparalleled. Poised to rekindle this nostalgia in the new year, Jordan Brand readies the revered Shadow colorway for a low-top comeback in Summer 2024, as per Sole Retriever.
As a classic that has witnessed numerous re-releases in various forms over the past decade and a half — the last in 2015 and pictured above — the Air Jordan 1 Shadow is a symbol of a bygone era. Yet, its appeal is anything but outdated. The upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG Shadow is an homage to the timeless black, medium grey, and white colorway that has graced shelves and adorned feet since its inception. With the increasing gravitation towards low-top silhouettes, this reissue isn't merely a nod to the past; it's a tasteful blend of tradition and trending tastes.
Boasting an all-leather upper, the 2024 iteration retains the quintessential black and grey theme synonymous with the Shadow moniker. Every design element reverberates with a sense of heritage, from the original Nike Air branding on the tongue tag and insoles to the emblematic Wings logo on the back heel tab. Perched atop a white midsole and grey solid rubber outsole, the design encapsulates the vintage aura while catering to modern-day aesthetics.
