8 Sites to Know Before Copping the Air Jordan 1 Shadow

This April marks an epic drop of the Air Jordan 1 Shadow. 5 years after its first drop, the prominently grey and black sneaker will release again. Funny enough, the drop was supposed to happen earlier as rumors began back in 2016. But all of that led up to this point in time, when the official release date is finally set.

This is a valuable comeback especially for those who could not cop in 2013 and for those who want to extend their Air Jordan 1 collection. Understandably, sneakerheads appreciate this particular colorway.


Air Jordan 1 Shadow Features

The mix of Black and Wolf Grey upper sits on top of a white midsole on top of a black outer sole. The grey Swoosh and accents are highlighted against the contrasting black background. The toe, heel, and tongue Nike Air branding are also grey to compliment the shoe.

The OG retro Air Jordan 1 Shadow is made of plush premium leather. The photographs display such buttery smoothness to the shoe that we can almost feel the texture on our fingers. But if images aren’t enough for you, Finish Line 1721 on YouTube share a video comparing the leather of the Air Jordan 1 Shadow with other AJ1s. Hint: Go to minute 9:40 to see the Shadows compared to the Shattered Backboards.
