The new Air Jordan 1 Retro Low features an all-white colorway with faint gold accents. What’s unique about the fresh kicks is that they don’t include the iconic Nike swoosh on both the medial and lateral side.
Nike explained that the swooshes were excluded to provide a “versatile” look for the wearer. Materials on the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low are premium white leather on the midfoot and heel areas while perforated white leather covers the forefoot.
While the shoe doesn’t have swooshes on its sides, it still has the Nike Air logo on the tongue and insole. Meanwhile, the Jordan Wings logo can be seen on the heel. Lastly, the aglets on the white laces are made of metal.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low No Swoosh White is the fourth colorway of the shoe to release this year. A Black, Olive and Pink version already debut in May, as per Sneaker Bar Detroit.
The white on white colorway of the shoe will release on Saturday. It will be available in SNKRS and all available Nike retailers for S150. Also releasing this weekend is the Air Jordan 14 Retro Oxidized, which will set sneakerheads back anywhere between $140 to $190.
For those wondering if Air Jordan 1 retros can be played on court, the simple answer is yes. However, there are better and more high-tech options in the market today.
Weartesters pointed out that traction on Air Jordan 1 retros are still very impressive. This is due to multi-directional traction pattern and flexible rubber content on the outsole. The traction will work just fine on both indoor and outdoor courts.
Cushioning on Air Jordan 1 retros are decent, but very antiquated. For people who want to hoop in their Air Jordan 1 retros, it is best to swap its insoles with Nike’s newer and bouncier drop-in insoles.
