The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low Slip is a laceless sneaker model with a button snap tongue for easy slip in and out. Extra comfort is made possible with an encapsulated Air-Sole unit in the heel and a lightweight foam midsole for cushioning. The low cut profile, on the other hand, allows a non-restrictive movement for the feet. Both the collar and tongue are lightly padded. 

This women’s exclusive AJ1 displays a retro look that goes well with a variety of outfits. While it modernizes the famed Air Jordan 1 shoes, it still gives the nod to the classic silhouette. 

The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low Slip features a smooth leather upper in a laceless design with a press-stud type of closure. A prominent yet tonal Swoosh is at the lateral side, while the toe box has perforation design details for that authentic AJ1 vibe. 

The Jordan brand released an Air Jordan 1 rendition for female sneakerheads called the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low Slip. The low-top, slip-on shoe features encapsulated Air-Sole unit in the heel and a lightweight foam midsole for cushioning and comfort. But what truly stands out aside from the snap-on closure are the exposed tags all the way the entire tongue and for some colorways, the perforated Swoosh branding on the lateral side. 

Famed shoe designer Peter Moore designed the very first Air Jordan shoe, the Air Jordan 1, in 1985. It re-released as a retro model in 1994, then again in 2001 and 2007. 

Fast forward to 2018. The Jordan brand makes an Air Jordan 1 version that lady sneakerheads could call their own and introduces it as the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low Slip. The shoe features a low-top construction with a laceless, slip-on design and a snap-on type of closure. Snap buttons on the ankle collar make slipping on and off a breeze.  

The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low Slip initially released in two color options – black and white. Both colorways feature a perforated side Swoosh that matches the perforated toe box. Each pair of these shoes originally retailed for $115. 

  • Jordan brandings are visible on the heel tab and tongue. 
  • Colorways available for this shoe include black/black/white, bright crimson/white/black, white/gym red/black/white, and black/white.
  • The shoe also features durable rubber outsoles for optimum traction.
