We’re pretty damn particular about our Jordans here at KicksOneTwo. We know what we like and what we want from Jordan Brand, and we generally stick to it. However, something occasionally comes along that just blows us out of the water (like the Futures did 2 years ago), and we’ll rock with it heavy.
Well, one of those releases is dropping this weekend: the Jordan I Low “Swooshless”. Available in black, “trooper” (olive green), and “arctic orange” (pink), all three colors of the Swooshless are simple, clean, and high-quality. The branding is minimal, with a small Nike Air on the tongue and the classic winged ball logo on the heel, the leather quality is high (we had a chance to check them out in person and they feel great), and the laces have gold tips for a little extra touch.
Clean and simple seems to be the way to go nowadays, and the Swooshless I is both of those things in droves. The black and white pair (always classic) goes with anything, the olive green is on-trend with the military-inspired color, and the pink pair (we refuse to say “arctic orange” any more than is absolutely necessary) is the best of the lot, as the pale pastel pink will go great with any summer fit.
The shoes are extremely limited, with rumors circulating that there are only 5,000 pairs of each in existence, so you’re in luck that Minnesota’s own Studiiyo23 got all three pairs, and will be doing first come, first serve at high noon on Saturday. We’d suggest that you get there early…it’ll be your best chance to grab a shoe (or two if you’re lucky) that you can have in rotation all summer.
