In 1984, Nike introduced the Air Jordan 1, a basketball shoe created by Peter Moore for a young Michael Jordan. This famous design went beyond sports, reshaping fashion forever.

One original Air Jordan 1 colorway, the “Black Toe,” gained fame through Nike’s ads, even mirroring the Jordan logo. Interestingly, Jordan wore this version in just a few games, boosting its appeal.

The Air Jordan 1 “Bred Toe” offers a subtle twist on the original sneaker. Its all-leather upper combines the classic “Bred” and “Black Toe” styles. The White quarter panel contrasts with Black overlays, while Gym Red accents the toe box, heel, collar flap, and outsole.
