Alpha Air Jordan 1 for Spring 2010

November 16, 2009 | 27

Alpha Air Jordan 1

Does the Alpha Air Jordan 1 look familiar? We gave our readers a early preview of the Alpha Air Jordan 1 back in June, so these images should ring a bell. For their 25th Anniversary, Jordan Brand took the shoe that started it all, the Air Jordan 1 and upgraded the iconic silhouette.

The air sole unit was replaced with a full-length Zoom Air bag which is covered by a phylon midsole. JB also took the no-sew overlay approach and added perforated inlays. The Alpha Air Jordan 1 features a mesh ankle unit which is similar to the Air Jordan XX3. Four colors of the Alpha Jordan 1 will drop Spring 2010 for $125.

Is the Alpha Jordan 1 futuristic enough for you?

    That airbag crap that Nike is doing now is awful, judging from what I’ve read. I was reading reviews of the Air Max +2009s, and apparently the “airbag” blows out with regular use. It’s a stupid technology to put in running shoes, if it’s that unstable. In a game like basketball it would be even worse. Like getting a flat tire on your foot.

  2. why don dey jus come out wit da original red/white/& black 1s instead of wastin tym on dese things

  3. dont diqq them at all!

  4. SneakyFeet

    Good job on the 1′s JB. Something to hoop in at the 24 besides my Hyperize.

    @ converse king

    actually its lunar foam from kobe4/hyperdunk/hyperize that gets flat not the zoom. if its midsole is zoom then its not lunar foam = def cop

  6. seen em in person…. both og colorways are copped… zoome air, padded heel,=new hoop shoe for me!

  7. troy copalot

    Are these mid’s or Hi’s ? I might cop if they were hi’s but they look kinda midish.

  8. TC Da Heat Holder aka Black Dynamite

    I am not playing Ball in AJ 1′s! I don’t care if they put Pamela Anderson’s Airbags in them………

  9. U.Beezy

    these are trash. wtf tho?

  10. D

    Can somebody please explain why JB has and continues to release so many 1′s? I love 1′s but I think they need to slow down.

  11. cuda

    Might cop. Def don’t like the midsole but what r u gonna do? The upper is nice tho.

  12. nice upgrades to an ol school classic. Definately gonna cop a pair of the black/red/white colorway…wouldnt use em to hoop in though

  13. Jerronimo

    these are gross…

  14. daethiopianking

    i hope nike stops wit dis madness soon cause they messin up a classic shoe, which r my favorites!!! SMH

  15. 4DRUMZ

    EXCELLENT! They need to drop some more neutral oriented CW’s and then it’s a pick-up for sure! The style of the 1 with zoom air ball-ability!!!

  16. Nike can you please stop messin up a classic

  17. i understand why they are updating the 1′s but i dont think i’ll be copping any of these, i do need some red/white 1′s though…

  18. trey

    leave all the classics alone! no more fusions or any of these lame asss kicks

  19. CenValCali

    I’m sorry, but these pieces of crap doesn’t deserve the infamous AJ Wings on the side at all….

  20. KicksBoyWonder

    SMH……pass!

  21. dashoekid21

    disgusting, the whole shoe looks f’ed up

  22. solefix

    Nah FAIL!

  23. hi im a p.c

    these are actually kinda nice they look like more duriable aj1 to me wouldnt mind buying these … but i highly doubt it with all the hot stuff comin out at that time

  24. 4DRUMZ

    I’m all about these. I never picked up a pair of 1′s because anything over a size 10 and you look like a clown because they flatten out so much. I’m 11.5 and these will maintain some shape in the forefoot and toebox… plus, you can actually ball in these. They need a more neutral mainstream CW though.

  25. pass like bad gas…..

  26. seVIIn

    these are mids not highs, mids have 8 eyelets(holes you put the laces through) highs got 9. i dont really like mids but the carolina CW looks decent

  27. I’m not really keen on the soles but the color schemes are nice.
