It may be a smaller-sized sneaker, but that’s not stopping the Air Jordan 1“Satin Black Toe” from holding a lofty spot as one of this summer’s (or winter for us here in the Southern Hemisphere) most anticipated drops from Jordan Brand. Featuring traditional leather construction and a classic white/black/red “Black Toe” color scheme that first debuted way back in 1985 and last released in 2016, these bold Air Jordans earn their alternate moniker due to a material substitution on the heel, where the normal red leather is swapped out for a silky textile. The collar flap’s ball-and-wings logo is switched up as well, doing away with the standard debossed stamp in favor of a bold black jeweled iteration.
An interesting amalgamation of styles both new and time-honed, these AJ1s are hit retailers on August 17th and we’re available in women’s sizing only. So if you’re a guy, you’ll want to go a full size and a half up — for example, if you normally wear a men’s 8, you’d want to shoot for a women’s 9.5 (this applies to US sizing, UK sizing remains consistent for men and women).
These appear to be EXTREMELY high in demand most notably beyond South African shores. So you can be sure these are highly sought after and are pulling quite a bit of weight on the resale market.
We have landed some of them and will be releasing them very soon right here on www.limitedrun.co.za stay locked to our Instagram for updates.
