The remarkable features of the Air Jordan 1 Centre Court

This low-cut sneaker fuses the looks of two classic sports—the simplicity of tennis shoes and the Air cushioning found in many Nike basketball kicks. Behind the straightforward appeal of the Centre Court are a few interesting and unique elements. The following are what we mean:

  • On its heel is the tumbled monochromatic Wing leather that is constructed in an oversized quilted manner. This element represents Jordan's wings and "how he took flight and never looked behind."
  • Underneath the tongue of the left pair is Michael Jordan's thumbprint, while the right shoe displays his Air-ness' signature. 
  • Found on the tongue and heel tab are the suede panels with Air Jordan branding to add a premium vibe.
