Between a recent Paris Saint-Germain collection and the NBA Paris Game, France’s capital city has been firmly fixated in Jordan Brand‘s mind over the recent months. Now, that Parisian inspiration is entering a new chapter with an elegant Air Jordan 1 Low. A stately, muted nod to the bustling metropolis, this low-cut Air Jordan 1 focuses on telling its story through refined details instead of bright colors. Uppers combine three materials: smooth leather, soft suede and tightly woven textiles. The first is used strictly on the white quarter panel, providing a literal and figurative center point for the design. The second appears in abundance, gracing the gray mudguard, eye-stays and Swoosh as well as the soft blue heel piece. This heel piece also uses a debossed ball-and-wings logo in place of the AJ1 Low’s standard embroidered iteration. A final touch of suede is present on the tongue badge, itself presenting a debossed gold Air Jordan logo. Lastly, the third material appears around the classic collar and tongue, providing sporty structure to the elegant shoe.
