Who should not buy the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low

Impressive cushioning

Traction on any surface

Basketball players mentioned that the shoe delivers great traction. This makes sense because the rubber outsole of the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low features deep flex grooves that move in stride with your feet. The pivot circle offers flexibility and traction on a variety of surfaces.

Great fit

Superb quality but awful craftmanship

Many sneakerheads were disappointed with how the shoe was put together - it is, after all, a mass-produced shoe. The quality is there and it is noticeable the moment you take the shoe into your hands. However, there were reports of the non-centered forefoot, outsoles not being flat, etc. 

The lockdown that your feet need

Several hoopers mentioned that the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low provides containment that locks their foot firmly on the footbed. This is brought by its traditional lacing system and durable leather upper.

You should break them in

Give it time for all that comfort the shine. As a few hoppers have said, the AJ 1 Retro Low needs a few days of regular wear to be properly broken in.
