“Jordans of a feather, family members flock together” that’s how that saying goes, right? If your family is one that likes to impress, the Air Jordan 1 is a sneaker that any sibling can gravitate towards. With the holidays coming up, you’re going to want to come correct and gift only the freshest pairs to those most special to you. Check out the latest selection of Air Jordan 1s on StockX where you’re sure to find something fit for anyone on your holiday list. 

 

Air Jordan 1 Chicago Lost and Found

The original Air Jordan 1 colorway was first introduced in 1985 and has only been retroed a few times since then. But this year the original colorway returns with an added vintage look. Pre-yellowed accents and cracked leather uppers showcase a fabricated look of age and wear. Since the last pair of Air Jordan 1 High Chicagos dropped in 2015, resell prices have been high for the original colorway. But currently, with the new retro releasing this year, and stock expected to be huge, anyone can now own the sneaker for a comparatively reasonable price. Make it a priority to scoop up a pair as soon as possible before resale prices start climbing on this new release.

Air Jordan 1 Taxi

Just like your family, the Air Jordan 1 Taxi also belongs to a pack. This colorway of the Jordan 1 was released back in September and is the latest addition to the unofficial, yet commonly referred to as, the “Toe” pack, despite its Taxi moniker. Just like its previous pack member, the Royal Toe, the Air Jordan 1 Taxi follows a similar colorblocking technique, having bolder prominent colors on the toe and heel with contrasting black and white everywhere else on the sneaker. Taxi yellow leather on the toe, heel, and collar of the high top. The AJ1 Taxi is a vibrant colorway that is sure to be a hit for anyone in the family.

Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred

In 2021, Jordan Brand reintroduced the OG Bred colorway with a patent leather swap, adding a glossy, mirror-like upper. The Patent Bred released during last year’s holiday season, and is still considered a top seller on StockX. Alongside the Air Jordan 1 Chicago, the Patent Bred was one of the premiere colorways to unveil the classic Michael Jordan silhouette.The sneakers are sure to be a statement piece and will bring more attention to your holiday fit. 

Air Jordan 1 Fragment x Travis Scott

Travis Scott dropped this Jordan 1 iteration in 2021 and flipped the script like the Nike Swoosh that the sneaker features. The Cactus Jack head honcho’s collaborative Jordan 1 was even more special, as the sneaker was a three-way partnership with Fragment Design’s Hiroshi Fujiwara. Scott’s Air Jordan 1 High opts for a brighter hue instead of the previous dark brown colorway on his debut AJ1 release. Military Blue, Sail, and Black tumbled leather make up the entirety of the upper, while a Sail midsole add a vintage look to the sneaker. The Air Jordan 1 Fragment x Travis Scott is still considered one of the more hyped Jordan 1s to release in years, making it a great gift for that extremely passionate sneakerhead in the family.

Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniére

For those opting for a more subtle look, the A Ma Maniére Air Jordan 1 pairs muted tones and premium materials to deliver a solid collab. AMM’s Jordan 1 comes after a memorable Jordan 3 release from earlier in 2021, and continues the brand’s love for neutral aesthetics. The Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniére features cracked leather upper with burgundy reptilian-textural leather collars and Swooshes. Waxed laces with metal aglets and quilted satin lining bring a luxe feel to the high top sneaker that hasn’t been replicated in a Jordan 1 High for quite some time.

Air Jordan 1 Union Los Angeles Black Toe

The Jordan 1 Union Los Angeles Black Toe is one of the freshest takes on the Air Jordan 1 of all time. This sneaker is a collaboration between Los Angeles shop Union, and Jordan Brand that takes two of Michael Jordan’s original colorways and combines them to create a one-of-a-kind sneaker. The sneaker utilizes both the Black Toe and Neutral Grey, two OG colorways of the Air Jordan 1, and Frankensteins them together to create a unique piece of footwear. This sneaker was released back in 2018 but is still regarded as one of the best Jordan 1s to release due to its creative approach. 

Women’s Air Jordan 1 Mid Split Black White

The Jordan 1 Mid Split Black White sneaker is the perfect example of classic style with a modern twist. This sneaker features a split design on the upper, giving off a yin-yang appearance, splitting between black and white leathers. The black and white colorway is timeless and chic, making it a statement sneaker that will certainly grab the attention of onlookers this holiday season.
