When you think of the most iconic sneakers in history, the chances are, the Air Jordan 1 will come to mind. Created for esteemed basketball player Michael Jordan by legendary sneaker designer Peter Mooreback in 1985, the AJ1 has gone through thousands of paint jobs over the past three decades, but one thing that’s never changed is the is the iconic design.
Featuring a mid-cut silhouette for the optimum ankle support, a gigantic Swoosh shoots across the lateral and medial sides, while Jumpman branding also makes its presence known on the tongue. With all that said, here are the ten hottest Air Jordan 1s that are somehow still available over at Footasylum!
The Air Jordan 1 ‘Crimson Tint’ is, hands down, one of the hottest AJ1s of the year. Taking colour blocking to an entirely different level, light pink suede panels contrast against a white leather base, while a further pop of colour is injected via ‘Hyper Pink’ on the laces and rubber outsole.
If you’re looking for a fiery hot Jumpman sneaker to add to your collection, look no further than the Air Jordan 1 ‘Gym Red’. Paying homage to the iconic ‘Chicago”s signature red, white, and black palette, you’ll be turning heads wherever you go with these AJ1s.
If you didn’t get a chance to cop the ultra rare Shinedown x Air Jordan 1 ‘Attention Attention’, then the Air Jordan 1 ‘Yellow Toe’ is definitely the next best thing. Exclusive to Footasylum, the timeless black and yellow colour combo just works perfectly.
The perfect Jordan Brand shoe to rock this summer, the Air Jordan 1 ‘White’ is literally as clean as it gets. Crafted from a series of tumbled leather panels, smooth leather accents make their way to the Swoosh and tongue for textural contrast that’s sure to stand out.
While the Air Jordan 1 ‘Black’ may look like any old AJ1, it’s far from it. Painted in an ultra clean monochromatic palette, the tongue references Michael Jordan’s iconic “Maybe I Destroyed The Game” TV commercial from 2008 that will stay in our mind’s forever.
