Air Jordan 1 Low vs. Nike Dunk Low
Both designed by Peter Moore, these models have more similarities than differences. However, we have listed a few differences that we find interesting:
- The Dunk was initially designed for college basketball players, while the Jordan Low was intended to be Michael Jordan's signature footwear.
- Although some Dunks have Zoom Air on its midsole, the regular Nike Dunk Low does not have that technology. However, the Air Jordan 1 Low carries that iconic Air-Sole tech that provides a better cushioning than the traditional sole.
- The Swoosh found on the Dunk intersects the heel counter and heel tab. Meanwhile, the AJ Lows display various stitching panels on the heel with the Swoosh tail above the heel counter.
- The Air Jordan Low 1 flaunts the iconic Wing logo on its heel counter, while the Dunk Low also has the common Nike branding embroidered on its heel tab.
- While the toe box of Dunk is broader and taller, the AJ 1 Lows is a bit more tapered. This is because the AJ Low 1 was initially intended to be performance footwear. Jordan designed it to be snug to keep the feet from sliding in the shoe while playing.
