Another interesting take on the OG Air Jordan colorways is presented by the 2020 Air Jordan 1 High “Smoke Grey” sneakers, retailing at 170 USD. The retro pulls off mixed materials and a neat color blocking in a way that you would not expect, engaging both wearers and spectators to its muted charms.
The sneakers reimagine the Jordan 1 x Union LA collab back in 2018, taking more inspiration on the Chicago Bulls’ uniforms. The shoes greet you with light grey suedes covering the mudguard and eyestays nicely, while keeping it fresh with some white leather on the toe guard and quarters. In the center, we have the standard AJ1 nylon tongue in white topped with a black tag and an embroidered Nike Air in red. Featured on the ankles are the most eye-catching detail of the shoes in Varsity Red, carrying the Air Jordan wings logo pressed in black. Rounding up the retro-modernized mash-up are black detailings at its collars, a suede Nike Swoosh, and a rubber outsole for that solid look.
These details are what also make it a go-to match with any of your wardrobe pieces. Style off the OG aesthetic with an all-black shirt and jeans outfit, then pair it with a grey topcoat for that sharp and clean look. Or switch up the top with a hoodie to give more depth to your fit. To dress it off more casually, match it with a simple black shirt and joggers, then throw on your favorite bomber jacket. But if you want to play more with the neutrals, try donning the kicks with some grey acid wash jeans, a contrasting black top, and a matching grey denim jacket to complete the look.
