No-frills white and gray Air Jordan 1s have been all the rage as of late thanks to covatable styles like the Dior x Air Jordan 1 and the recent Air Jordan 1 Hi ‘85 “Neutral Grey,” so Jordan Brand is leaning fully into that ethos with models like the new Air Jordan 1 Low “Berlin Grey.” A low-cut style inspired by Berlin’s urban landscape, the “Berlin Grey” pays homage to Germany’s capital city in understated fashion but sneaks in some signature detailing as well.

Uppers may be low in cut, but they’re high in grey content thanks to a mixture of neutral hues like “Grey Fog,” “Photon Dust” and “Smoke Grey.” Smooth grey leather is used on the mudguard, eyestays and heel, grey mesh is present around the collar and grey elephant print leather — long a hallmark of Michael Jordan‘s footwear — is used on the forefoot overlays and Swoosh. According to Nike, this gang of gray shades represents Berlin’s “ample tarmac.”

Apart from the assemblage of grey pieces, white leather appears on the quarters and toeboxes. Textile tongues are done up in white as well. Other branded hits appear via a white leather tongue tag with a debossed grey Air Jordan graphic, an embroidered grey #23 on the lace keeper, and a debossed ball-and-wings logo on the heel. White midsoles and grey outsoles round off the look.

The Air Jordan 1 Low “Berlin Grey” will release on European Nike SNKRS sites come March 6, and is priced at $110 USD.
