Like it’s close kin, the Nike Dunk Low, #23’s Air Jordan 1 Low has arguably done everything in its 36-year-history. For its latest ensemble, the lifestyle-oriented silhouette has abandoned any cultural or playful theme in favor of a simple “Psychic Purple/White” colorway. Smooth leather bases set the stage for the titular purple tone with their “colorless” arrangement, which is reminiscent of a handful of Nike Sportswear classics’ most common styles. Overlays around the toe, along the tongue and across the heel, then, interrupt the white makeup with vibrant “Psychic Purple” flair. Branding on the tongue follows suit, but “Wings” insignia at the lower heel (which differs from the original low-top Air Jordan 1) reverts to stark white contrast. Underfoot, sole units opt for tried-and-tested color-blocking, bringing a final touch of boldness to the outsole. Enjoy official images of the women’s retro ahead, and expect a Nike.com launch soon. Elsewhere under the Team Jumpman banner, the Air Jordan 6 “UNC” is revving up to be one of 2022’s most-coveted releases.
