10 Pairs That Prove the Jordan 1 High Still Reigns Supreme

Jordan 1 High

You don’t need to hear about how popular the Jordan 1 High is right now. You probably see it at least once a day adorning the feet of celebrities or skipping down your Instagram feed. It’s enough to make the silhouette very boring, very quickly. But it doesn’t. Why? Because the colorways are just too good.

The understated Jordan 1 High silhouette forms the perfect blank canvas for exciting — and often very exclusive — color palettes. With the help of Hype Clothinga, we’ve grouped together 10 of our favorite Jordan 1 High iterations at the moment.

With a selection ranging from fire general releases like the Mocha to hard-to-get limited drops in the form of La Flame’s back-to-front Swoosh 1s, we’ve touched on every side of the Jordan 1’s wild popularity. But fear not, there’s a selection for every budget here.

Releasing in the US on October 31, 2020, the Jordan 1 High Dark Mocha came at the perfect time. Just as we’d all come to terms with not being able to buy Travis Scott’s reverse-Swoosh highlights, this doppelganger dropped.

Speak of the devil… This pair is arguably La Flame’s most successful Nike collaboration to date. Capitalizing on the burgeoning popularity of the Jordan 1 High back in May 2020, it sold out instantly and hit resale at eye-watering prices. It does look good, though…

If you’re a Highsnob regular, you’ll know that we love a University Blue colorway. This one landed in March this year and caused quite a stir with its supple leather and suede uppers.

Designed to commemorate Michael Jordan’s 63-point playoff game in Boston in 1986, the Jordan 1 High Lucky Green features bright green overlays against a full-grain leather backdrop and black hits to the Swoosh and laces.

The Jordan 1 High CMFT is a great choice for those looking to diversify their rotation. We were treated to this beauty the day after Valentine’s Day which was a strong consolation for any who didn’t celebrate the romantic holiday.

Swap out the red of a Jordan 1 High Bred and you’ve the Court Purple. This twist on the classic offered a refreshing new take when it dropped in September 2018. The minimal color-blocking makes this pair versatile but still visually punchy.

Clay Green has got to be up there with the best colors in the Nike repertoire. We can’t get enough of the dusty hue in suede to the heel and collar of this pair. Mirrored by a Clay Green Swoosh and outsole, it becomes an understated protagonist.

This hairy pair originally released to commemorate the 2019 Kentucky Derby, which gave the colorway the nickname “Shoe of the Derby”. Before that, they were called the Jordan 1 High Panda, which seems much more fitting, don’t you think?

Part of Nike’s Co.JP initiative which revives japan-exclusive colorways for the wider market, the Jordan 1 High Midnight Navy is a collector’s favorite. Best of all, you don’t need to drop extortionate amounts to get this pair in your rotation.
