Retro is back and looking better than ever. This January 9, 2021, Nike released the Air Jordan 1 Volt University Gold as a fresh take on its Black Toe-themed predecessors with its reconstructed design, reinforced materials, and additional aesthetic features. Its tri-tonal color blocking of Volt, Sail, and University Gold complements the shoes all-around to complete that bright and crisp look.
The high-top’s collar is a yellow-tinted panel with black lining that dons an iconic Jordan Wings logo embossed at the ankle, contrasting with white synthetic leather at the sides and the signature black Swoosh. The tongue is designed with exposed foam edges accentuated with a translucent, reversed tongue label so that the Nike logo is inside and the details of the shoes are outside. And lastly, the midsoles are outlined with a single stitch design with that Sail color before finishing off the bottom with black.
But enough of its looks, let’s talk about the other details of the sneakers. The Nike Air Jordan 1 Volt University Gold retails for about 170 USD, is true to size, and is loyal to every Jordan lover out there in terms of comfort and styling.
The Air midsole offers adequate cushioning and a durable rubber outsole for better traction. Style-wise, these kicks are a good topper for a sharp outfit with its timeless silhouette. To pull off its color and features seamlessly, try donning on a casual all-black attire and a topcoat in yellow & brown hues to match with the accents of the shoes, or up your style game and change your bottoms with white or sail colored pants and pair it up again with a yellow-toned jacket.
Still, its versatility will fit your aesthetic no matter what, be it casual streetwear, athleisure, or even semi-formal, so you can do you.
