  • The Air Jordan Trainer 1 Low is designed to meet the varied demands of cross-training. It aims to deliver lightweight support with its woven Flyweave upper. It is also supplemented with strong Flywire cables to secure the midfoot while still allowing for natural motion.
  • Underneath the upper is a thin sock-like cleatie. Its purpose is to keep the foot in place and prevent the heel from slipping out of the shoe.
  • The partially translucent outsole is equipped with a durable Zoom Air unit. Rubber is strategically placed along the sole for sturdy grip and traction on different types of surfaces.
  • The Phylon-injected forefoot features honeycomb free flex grooves. They are meant to promote flexion and comfort.

Since Jordan training shoes mainly cater to male athletes, the Trainer 1 Low is available in men's sizes only. It runs true to size and is offered in a D – Medium width.

The Air Jordan Trainer 1 Low’s outsole is reinforced with a Zoom Air technology. It is Nike’s forefront cushioning system that affords optimal responsiveness and flexibility to the wearer.

It also features a rubber compound that’s strategically placed all over the heel for grip and traction on all kinds of surfaces.

The 5-mm heel-to-toe drop of the Air Jordan Trainer 1 Low means that it has an almost flat platform that gives a solid foundation for most types of workouts. The forefoot section features honeycomb-patterned flex grooves for added flexibility and comfort.

An explosion of the elephant pattern adorns the entire length of the Air Jordan Trainer 1 Low’s upper. As with all Air Jordan shoes, the Jumpman logo is prominently displayed on the side.

It is made from the durable Flyweave, an engineered woven textile that conforms to the foot to give targeted support to areas that need it the most.

Strong Flywire cables are used along the lacing system to secure the midfoot without inhibiting natural motion. A pull tab is placed at the heel to accommodate easy on-and-off wear.
