The Air Jordan 1 Retro High is based on the first shoe that Nike released on 1985 under Michael Jordan’s signature line. In light of this, most of the technologies on the shoe are considered outdated compared to other basketball shoes in the market. Due to the shoe’s history, many people consider it a collector’s item and a fashion sneaker rather than a performance basketball shoe. Its classic silhouette makes it attractive.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High’s shoe material may change depending on the shoe’s colorway or release date. This has been attributed to the changes in production or manufacturing place. However, most of the colorways use split-grain leather with a polyurethane coating. This material is unlike the newer and more breathable ones used on basketball shoes today, thus, only the nylon tongue and perforations on the toebox provide any sort of ventilation to the shoe. However, recent releases of the shoe feature other materials used for the upper, such as textile.
The midsole is made out of solid rubber, embedded with Nike Air pouches in the heel area. The outsole is made of soft rubber, giving the shoe a low drop and the player a good court feel.
