Although its cut may be short, the energy around the Air Jordan 1 Low has been high in recent months, thanks to both collaborations and clean in-line releases, the latest of which to appear is a familiar “Court Purple” style.
Borrowing generously from 2018’s fairly-popular Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Court Purple,” this chopped-down iteration of Michael Jordan‘s first signature sneaker features a regal purple toebox and heel, separated by crisp white quarter panels and accented by black trim/overlays.
Although the color-blocking is immediately familiar, there are some noticeable differences from this AJ1’s high-top precursor to be had as well. The tongue and throat offer a white Jumpman logo and a purple 23 hit, respectively, while the heel adds an embroidered Wings graphic. The midfoot Swoosh makes use of a material change as well, trading out standard tumbled leather for a stark patent leather. Meanwhile, a white midsole and purple outsole finalize the look.
This isn’t the first time that Jordan Brand has borrowed from the AJ1 High for notable makeups of the AJ1 Low in 2019. Low-top iterations of the “Shattered Backboard” and “Black Toe” colorways had hit the market this summer.
The Air Jordan 1 Low “Court Purple” is available now on Nike.com for $90 USD. In other Jordan Brand news, Patta recently announced the release of their second Air Jordan 7 collaboration.
