The Air Jordan 1 Retro High Flyknit "Clay Green" is a pretty great example of the OG model's Flyknit greatness.
The advanced woven uppers have resulted in some outstanding looks for the AJ 1, highlighted by iterations such as this one.
Thanks to that lightweight and uniquely textured build, each iteration provides some new takes on the age-old classic basketball sneaker. And, if you're looking for some variety - perhaps a bit of intrigue in your sneaker collection - this may be the shoe for you. We also get plenty of retro details working with the more modern elements fluidly.
One of the highlights of this shoe is very likely the continued eloquent application of the Flyknit upper. A closer look shows the Air Jordan 1 adopts the material in an interesting way, segmenting certain the upper in different sections of varying textures. The look reminds us of what we saw on the Air Jordan 31, which implements a knit portion in a similar finish.
The midsole is in a classic White and sits on top of a Gum outsole, a combination that is sure to help the shoe's wider appeal. And then, we have the main accenting detail: the multicolored Swoosh branding. Each pair comes in four colors, Yellow, Blue, Red, and Black.
The introduction of Flyknit to the Air Jordan 1 has, so far, been a great decision for Jordan Brand. The material is always going to present a unique opportunity at factors such as colorway variation.
Releases such as the Black History Month colorway have exemplified visual flair. With this more recent Clay Green iteration, we see that it works well in solid colours too, thanks in part to some creative branding notes.
With the warmer months starting to officially come our way, this is a great addition to just about any collection!
