On January 25th, Jordan Brand released 10 colour ways of the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette for their woman’s 2018 spring line “Season of Her”.
I picked up my pair the Silt Red/White-Metallic Gold colour way that ultimately turned out to be the most popular one. Other stand out colour ways include the Mint Foam/White-Metallic Gold, the Ice Peach/White-Metallic Gold and the Barely Grape/White-Metallic Gold. To be honest Jordan Brand did a stand up job in the colour ways released, anyone can find a colour that suits their personal style and taste. Personally I like them more a little muted and pastel.
The shoe is made out with what feels to be a super luxurious satin and suede material which is a definitely a switch up from the leather fabric we are used to seeing on the majority of the Jordan 1s. The fabric makes it a shoe you can dress up or down and overall something different to your sneaker collection. I love the shoe and it’s something I can see myself wearing through the spring and early summer days.
I appreciate Jordan Brand for making this a woman’s release that woman actually want to wear. I think slowly but surely the brand and sneaker companies in general are beginning to understand the women want good shoes just as much as men so please, leave those Nicki Minaj, Barbie like colour ways in the past cause those were good for no one. This shoe is to me a celebration of women coming up in the sneaker community and are absolutely a force to be reckoned with.
Overall the impeccable materials and the crazy colour ways is what makes this Jordan 1 special. It does run true to size (your girl is a size woman’s 10 and men’s 8.5) and retail for 160 USD or 200 CAD through the Nike websites and certain Jordan retailers.
P.S. – HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY to all my beautiful laddies reading this.
