This shoe has a strong outsole, springy midsole and pliable upper make this a comfortable shoe to wear. This is widely accepted as the most comfortable Air Jordan of all time and one worn, it is easy to see why.
The upper is made of softer material than the rest for a more plush feel. The signature leather stripe down the side helps make this more noticeable and stand out among other footwear. The laces are strong but do fray if not cared for. The tongue is also padded for additional comfort.
The outsole is tougher than other shoes and can seem too rigid at first. However over time it loosens up and creates a spring effect that feels helpful when jumping. This combined with the cushioning in the outsole make for a smooth walk.
Overall, this shoe is great for leisure wear and won’t disappoint. The combination of different materials and textures also help to make this a really stand out piece of footwear.
This shoe is stylish and eye catching as the original but the new materials make it a touch more wearable in the hotter months with its increase in breath-ability. The softer materials can help make these slightly more comfortable to wear for longer walks.
The silhouette is the famous Air Jordan 1 outline that is known the world over. The Swoosh runs all the way from the sides around the back to help the colour scheme feel fluid and make another standout point of the shoe.
The Air Jordan wings on the side help identify this as shoe royalty. The toe box is a good size so that the wearers toes don’t get crushed as you bend them while walking. The outsole has good traction as well as leaving the prints behind of the first shoe in long ongoing legacy.
Overall, this shoe will catch eyes and will never go out of style. Comfortable to wear will always be a bonus too.
This shoe is comfortable with more movement in the ankle the the high version. This is an aethesthetically pleasing shoe that will turn heads everywhere.
The upper is comprimised of a good looking pattern that helps hold the structure of the shoe together. The laces are tough to pull really tight but the shoe is still comfortable to wear as long as your dont plan on putting it through its passes.
The outsole has an interesting pattern to keep it looking great while allowing plenty of traction. The midsole with the visible air is another interesting focal point. There is plenty of suspension for comfort when moving around.
The heel has a lot of support to push against while also having a flexible top to insert the foot in. There is also a somewhat flexible handle to hold onto when putting on and taking off the shoe.
Overall, this is a great shoe for wearing around and turning heads. There are a lot of features of this shoe to keep fans interested for a long time, as they already have.
Once it is worn in, this is a very comfortable pair of shoes. However up to that point they can be uncomfortable as they are of sturdy construction and need to be flexed a bit to become a bit more malleable and conform a bit more to the foot.
To start the silhouette is quite narrow to begin with so getting it on for the first time can be quite difficult. However this can be solved by loosening the laces, even though the laces can be tricky to loosen in the first place as they seem almost stuck in place. After a couple times of wearing them, this goes away a bit but they stay fairly stiff.
Even with this, when they are on, they are still comfortable and can be worn for a long time without getting sore feet. The high top is also helpful because it helps to support the ankle and is a little padded to give extra comfort. However the high top is one of the reasons the shoe can be tricky to get onto the wearer’s feet.
Overall, this is a comfortable shoe that takes some getting used to, but as a piece of Jordan Brand history coming up on its thirtieth anniversary, this could be a great buy. If your a collector, this is a must buy and if your a sneaker afficianado, the same applies.
