There’s no denying that the Jordan 1 has had two years to be remembered. A string of collaborations ranging from artists like Travis Scott and J Balvin through to storied luxury houses like Dior proved that the Air Jordan 1’s appeal stretches the entire width of contemporary culture. But while the focus is put almost entirely on the high-top silhouettes, Air Jordan 1 Lows remain relatively untouched.
That’s right. While the Jordan 1 High steals the headlines and racks up wild prices at resale, you can cop colorways of the Air Jordan 1 Low that you simply can’t find as a high-top for a fraction of the cost. From holiday exclusives through to rare iterations of University Blue versions, the Air Jordan 1 Low collection at Stadium Goods is a veritable gold mine if you know where to look.
We hate to see underrated kicks sitting, so we took to the stacked pages of Stadium Goods to round up some of the best Air Jordan 1 Low colorways that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. While others lose their heads over four-figure high-tops, stay cool with a pair of these lows.
Dropping for Easter 2021, the Air Jordan 1 Low “Arctic Punch” is the breath of fresh air we wanted as we move firmly into our spring rotation. Arctic Punch overlays complement Purple Pulse to the collar, outsole, and Swoosh. With pastels an evergreen fixture of spring and summer, this pair slots seamlessly into the seasonal wardrobe.
We’re always impressed with Nike’s ability to approach the Chinese New Year releases with originality and creativity. 2021 saw one of the best drops to date, and this Air Jordan 1 Low led the pack. Traditional Chinese satin forms the upper in classic “Bred” style with intricate embroidery while details like the red and gold rope across the tongue round out the exclusive drop.
One of the Air Jordan 1 Low’s greatest assets is its versatility when it comes to styling. The 2020 “White Camo” iteration takes versatility to another level with its understated color palette. White and grey leather combine to form the simple upper which is highlighted by a camouflage Swoosh.
You’re probably more accustomed to seeing Nike’s University Blue hue combined with white in homage to Michael Jordan’s alma mater of UNC. Here, the signature light blue meets full-grain black leather for a twist on the theme and we’re loving it.
One of the most recent drops in today’s roundup, the Air Jordan 1 Low “Silver Toe” is a bold selection landing in time to show off for spring and summer. Crinkled silver leather contrasts with black leather overlays for a visual punch.
Midnight Navy suede leads to University Red and clean white leather in patriotic style for the Air Jordan 1 Low SE “USA”. As the name suggests, this pair takes inspiration from the star-spangled banner and the outcome is surprisingly easy to rock.
Lance Mountain is no stranger to the Air Jordan 1, with a few internet-breaking collaborations under his belt already. Following on from the athlete’s previous DIY styles, this Air Jordan 1 Low collaboration features a tearaway beige upper which, over time, will reveal a surprise layer underneath.
Up there with the most iconic shirts ever worn, Michael Jordan’s go-to co-ord during the 1992 Barcelona Olympics is hard to forget. Pay homage to the crazy ‘90s style with the Air Jordan 1 Low “Nothing But Net” which transplants the shirt’s bright pattern onto the overlays.
We love mixed media footwear updates because it’s a quick-fire way to introduce more texture to your fits. This pair of bright red Air Jordan 1 Lows does just that with a quilted base layer in baby pink combining with an embroidered Swoosh and red overlays.
Without the Fuchsia hits, this design would be extremely minimal; just black and white, in fact. It’s this simplicity which forms the perfect frame for eye-catching Fuchsia to the outsole and laces as well as perforated suede panels to the collar and heel tab.
