It’s a brand new year and Nike is more than ready for the next 12 months as they unveil new Jordan releases 2017. Leading the pack of new Jordans, we’ve got the Air Jordan XXX1 Black Toe which is set for a January 7th release.
Air Jordan XXX1 Black Toe
Size Run: Mens
Release Date:January 7, 2017
These kicks are brought out to commemorate Michael Jordan’s career as part of the Bulls, displaying a combination color of white and black. Deciding not to go basic, however, the design is a tad more eye-catching as the white-black takes on a matrix-like appearance.
From the trim, you’ve got a black covering the gradually fades into white towards the heel portion of the shoes. On the way, you can see the Swoosh logo beautifully crafted onto the body of the shoes. Further on, just along the heel portion is the Jumpman logo in solid black, large enough to be instantly seen with just one look.
The tongue of the shoes follows the same gradient shift from black to white, following the general pattern of the kicks. On the center of the tongue is another Jumpman logo, this time embedded onto the material. Done primarily in white on white, you can tell that Nike decided to go for a clean’ look on these shoes, hoping for a more classic feel to the silhouette.
The only eye-catching color is hot red, placed as a streak of light along the soles. The red forms the divide between the upper and the midsole, adding that dash of boldness to the overall look. The midsole are done in white by the way with the outsole taking in a translucent color.
A third Nike logo can be found on the shoes, this time placed on the inner side of the kicks. Also done as white on white, the Wings logo is a little tough to see if you’re not paying attention. The black and bold Jumpman logo on the other side of the kicks somehow distracts from the Wings.
All in all, it’s a pretty good take on a classic. The shoes have a very clean feel to them – which should make it perfect for practically any occasion. Available in stores on the 7th, these shoes will sell for $185 each. Not a bad price to start the year. Note though that with more shoes in the offing, you might want to wait a little and see what else is available before making your purchase. If you like them though, make sure you’re in line when they’re made available in select Jordan stores!
