Model: Air Jordan 1 Low
Release Date: December 15
Editor's Notes: Can you hear that? The distant rumble of the L train pacing into the station? No, no, my European friends, I don't mean NYC's subway service – I'm talking about the losses we take on sneaker releases and raffles.
If you've taken a punt at trying to secure a pair of Travis Scott's Cactus Jack drops alongside Nike in the last couple of years, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Between bad luck and bots dominating the market, your best chance at purchasing typically falls in the secondary market – KLEKT, StockX, Presentedby, and the rest.
One silhouette that continues to pierce the market is the Air Jordan 1 Low. Appearing in "Mocha," "Reverse Mocha," and as a Fragment team-up, the Dunk alternative has proven its popularity. Now, it's set to return.
Unlike the palettes adopted in previous releases, this upcoming finish opts for a stealthy aesthetic, somewhat similar to the classic AJ1 High "Shadow."
Dubbed "Black/Phantom," the sneaker pairs black suede underlays with deep grey overlays of the same fabrication, all of which are pulled together by a white leather reverse Swoosh and matching midsole.
