Jordan 1 sneakers were first released in 1985 as part of the Jordan Brand line by Nike. They were designed for NBA player Michael Jordan and became the first signature shoe for the basketball legend. The design of the Jordan 1 was inspired by a mix of different sneakers and showcased a sleek, stylish look that stood out on the court. The high-top sneaker became an instant hit and has since become a cultural icon and highly sought after in the sneaker community. With numerous releases over the years, the Jordan 1 continues to be a popular choice for sneaker enthusiasts and collectors alike.

The Air Jordan 1 has become the most iconic sneaker silhouettes of all time for a number of reasons. First off, it is the very first signature shoe of arguably the single greatest athlete who ever lived and a cultural icon, Michael Jordan. Secondly, it’s the sneaker that changed culture forever, evolving into a collectible piece, and creating a shift of sneakers into high end fashion through its various designs and colourways that seemingly connect us with the stories of Michael Jordans successful career.

The Air Jordan 1 sneaker was originally designed by Peter Moore, and released during Jordan’s sophomore season with the Chicago Bulls too much controversy.

Nike designer Peter Moore, who designed the iconic Nike Air Force 1, among several other iconic Nike sneakers, came up with the idea to break the colour barrier in footwear and this seemed to work as before the Air Jordan came out, most basketball shoes were very plain and usually either white or black. Nike was not known for its basketball shoes and the market was dominated by brands like Adidas and Converse. The Air Jordan 1 was released in a variety of colours, adding a story-telling aspect to the sneaker culture and connecting with fans and culture. The red and black colourway of the Nike Air Ship, the prototype for the Jordan I, was first worn by Jordan in a preseason game and was later outlawed by then-NBA Commissioner David Stern for having very little white on them. This only added to the hype of the shoe.

In April of 1985, Jordan brand released its first colourway, the Air Jordan 1 Bred, to huge success. Nike originally had expectations of selling 100,000 pairs of the shoe, however, within the first 2 months of its release, over $70 million in sales were recorded. Due to this success, Nike quickly released multiple colourways in September of 1985, the Chicago, Black Toe, Shadow, Black and White, Royal, Kentucky and the UNC, forever implanting its footprint on the sneaker world.

The Air Jordan 1 has only continued to soar in popularity, even more than 35 years later, with several changes over time. The Air Jordan 1 Low and Air Jordan 1 Mid variations originally had mild success upon their release, however in recent times the popularity of these silhouettes have become so intense mainly due to the release of the documentary “The Last Dance” and its continued relevance through celebrity and brand collaborations. This is evident by the over 5 billion in sales Jordan brand reported in 2022. The Jordan 1 silhouette will undoubtedly continue to surge in popularity, particularly with the new movie AIR coming out in April 2023.

How many different colourways are available for Jordan 1 sneakers?

There are hundreds of colours and releases available for Jordan 1 sneakers, with new releases regularly added to the collection. Some of the most popular Jordan 1 colourings include: Black/Red (Bred), Chicago, Royal Blue, Black/Grey (Shadow), Metallic Gold/Black, Black Toe, Obsidian/Blue Chill, Game Royal, Gym Red, and Mocha.

Are Jordan 1 sneakers available in all sizes and what is the fit like?

Yes, Jordan 1 sneakers are available in a range of sizes for both men and women. For certain exclusive colourways, the Jordan brand might produce the shoes only in men’s sizes or only in women’s sizes (sometimes extends to men’s size US10.5)

Jordan 1 sneakers tend to fit true to size, but some people prefer to size up or down based on personal preference.

Is the quality of Jordan 1 sneakers consistent across different releases?

Jordan Brand is known for producing high-quality sneakers, and Jordan 1 sneakers are no exception. Quality may vary slightly between different releases. 

When it comes to pricing of different Jordan 1 releases, the resell value has nothing to do with quality, and is rather purely based on the limited stock and high demands. For example, although the Jordan 1 High Mochas can sell for up to $1000, the quality of Mochas is the same as those that resell for a lot less, such as Jordan 1 High Shadow 2.0 (resell at around au$500).

How do I clean my Jordan 1 sneakers?

It is recommended to clean Jordan 1 sneakers using a soft brush and a mild soap and water solution. Avoid using harsh chemicals as they can damage the material. To clean your Jordan 1 sneakers, follow these steps:

1. Remove any loose dirt or debris with a soft brush.

2. Mix a small amount of mild soap with warm water in a bowl.

3. Dip a clean cloth into the soap and water mixture and gently scrub the sneakers. Avoid soaking the sneakers as this may damage the material.

4. Use a second clean, damp cloth to rinse the sneakers thoroughly.

5. Allow the sneakers to air dry completely, away from direct heat or sunlight.

How do I know if my Jordan 1 sneakers are authentic?

Look for the Jordan logo on the tongue and check for any inconsistencies in the stitching, material, and overall construction. Sometimes the smell of the sneakers (from the glue and materials) are also a good way to tell if the sneakers are authentic . Authentic Jordan 1 sneakers will also come with an inside tag with a unique code for verification. The incorrect fonts and layouts on the tags are big giveaways of fake sneakers. We advise you to buy from trusted sellers such as KICKSTW to avoid the risk of getting fake sneakers.
