A classic model fresh from the 80s, the Air Jordan 1 "Shadow" colorway is a fan-favorite for casual and hardcore sneakerheads alike. A simple grey, white, and black design, the shoe is a staple Air Jordan sneaker that matches almost any outfit. Given its "OG" status as well, there is high demand for a real throwback as the next scheduled drop is set for Spring 2024 in a low-cut form.

The Air Jordan 1 is arguably the sneaker market's most sought-after and important model around. Most folks tend to value the shoe in its high-top style, but the Air Jordan 1 Low is just as iconic and stylish as its big brother.

The Air Jordan 1 Low was introduced at the same time as the Highs in 1985 when two colorways were introduced, the White/Metallic Blue and White/Natural Gray colorways. As the Highs continued to come out with a vast spectrum of styles, so did the Lows, where a lot of classic high colorways made the transition over.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 "Shadow" is a legendary palette bound for success once again with its low-top version.

The "Shadow" largely refers to the OG design from 1985, however, there have been many iterations of the shoe that take inspiration from the pioneer colorway. There are "Shadow Toe" lows which came out in 2022, the "Black Medium Grey" from 2021, and even a "Shadow" Nike Air Jordan 1 Low Golf shoe. There is certainly a desire in the shoe market for this particular color scheme and it is only fitting an OG Low design is set in stone for a general release.

Scheduled to drop on the Nike SNKRS app on May 10, 2024, it is yet to be revealed what retailers will have the shoe available for sale in-store, but the kicks will cost you an SRP of $140.
