Since its conception in the 1980s, the Air Jordan 1 has become one of the most iconic sneaker silhouettes in history. First debuted on the court in November ’84 in its iconic black and red colorway, the countless iterations to have followed in its complex history are coveted by collectors around the globe. And though a select few versions of the shoe have come with particularly heightened appeal (and eye-watering resale values), recent AJ1 output has come with many a rotational grail.
Here, we highlight some of the 2019 Air Jordan 1 colorways that those most dedicated of Jordan 1 collectors certainly won’t have been slept on when they hit retail. Available now at Stadium Goods in ample size runs, below you’ll see everything from the spring friendly “Turbo Green” palate to the still-to-be officially released Air Jordan 1 “Phantom”.
Scroll on to see all our picks.
Air Jordan 1 “Lakers”
Released earlier this year, this colorway is a must for Los Angeles Lakers fans considering the team’s signature yellow on its full-grain leather upper overlays paired with its bright purple laces.
Air Jordan 1 “Neutral Grey/Hyper Crimson”
This all-new colorway and construction blended a soft black leather base with beautiful grey brushed suede paneling, made to pop by its “Hyper Crimson” suede collar and inner lining. It was also the first Jordan 1 High OG to come with text on its midfoot panel, stating its spring ’19 release and model name.
Air Jordan 1 “Turbo Green”
Released as part of the 2019 NBA All-Star Collection, this washed, “Turbo Green” leather upper is a homage to the Charlotte Hornets team colors, who hosted the game this year.
Air Jordan 1 “Couture”
According to Jordan Brand, this premium Air Jordan 1 comes inspired by luxury Italian sports cars, rendered in a black and red color scheme. That hasn’t stopped speculation that the red bar strip on its side panels is a nod to the “banned” Air Jordan 1, though.
WMNS Air Jordan 1 “UNC Patent Leather”
This colorway is inspired by MJ’s college career at the University of North Carolina, coming in a glossy full patent leather build and exclusive to Jordan Brand’s women’s collection.
Air Jordan 1 “Phantom”
Don’t wait for this to come and go at retail. This amazing white AJ1 with contrasting red stitching and accents is available at Stadium Goods ahead of this weekend’s release, for a pretty reasonable mark up if you ask us.
WMNS Air Jordan 1 “Midnight Navy/Light Cream”
This high quality, premium edition women’s Air Jordan 1 comes in a luxe-looking light cream suede with midnight navy leather overlays – super elegant and timeless.
Air Jordan 1 “Black/Gold Patent Leather”
One of the most affordable Jordans on this list, this winning patent leather look will shine bright in any rotation thanks to its metallic gold Swoosh and accents.
