Who should not buy the Air Jordan OG

According to people who bought this shoe, the Air Jordan OG is not ideal for those with narrow feet because of its roomy toe box. Consider Jordan React Elevation for a pair that accommodates feet perfectly. The Air Jordan 34 is also a great alternative.

Play with style while wearing Air Jordan OG

Women athletes were happy when Jordan made waves in 1998, as it signals the launching of a basketball shoe designed exclusively for women. Inspired by the Air Jordan 13, many women buyers love how this pair delivers great style and excellent performance - thanks to its leather upper, carbon fibre plate, and Zoom Air units at the heel and forefoot.

Air Jordan OG midsole

The updated version of the first women's Air Jordan retains much of the original's DNA with slight modifications. The Air Jordan OG features a leather upper that provides a premium look. Under the heel, an Air-sole unit provides time-tested comfort.

Feminine, excellent fit 

"They're not bulky, it's a feminine Jordan feel." This is how a hooper described the fit. It is perfect according to more than 90% of the reviews out there. For some, the forefoot is too wide so those with narrow feet: heads up!

Awesome upper materials

Depending on the colorway, it's suede, leather, or a combination of the two. Verified buyers had nothing but praise for the quality of these - the leather is buttery soft, suede is perfect to the touch and durable. And, they look great, have a "super clean" design as a hooper has said, and are easy to style. 

Traction and grip? Smooth performance with Air Jordan OG

Many commented that the Jordan OG features the same outsole design as the Air Jordan XIII, which is loved by many fans.

Air Jordan 13 vs Air Jordan OG

Sharing the same DNA as the Air Jordan 13, the first women's Air Jordan featured performance technologies such as Zoom Air and a carbon fiber plate. All these technologies were designed to cater to the versatility of a woman's game. 

Let us find out the major differences between the original women's Air Jordan and the retro release.

Air Jordan OG details

Cushion. The Women's Air Jordan and Air Jordan OG both utilize a full-length Phylon foam midsole and encapsulated Zoom Air for enhanced underfoot comfort. Like the Air Jordan 13, the Women's Air Jordan came with heel and forefoot Zoom Air. Unfortunately, the Air Jordan OG only makes use of heel Zoom Air.

Except for the forefoot Zoom, the 2020 re-release is packed with the same technologies as the original. Because of this, the Air Jordan OG is both a fashionable retro and a capable on-court performer.

The original Women's Air Jordan was based on the Air Jordan 13. Let us see how the Air Jordan OG stacks up against the last basketball sneaker Michael Jordan laced-up as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

The women's Air Jordan OG features a Phylon foam midsole with a heel Zoom Air unit. Michael Jordan's thirteenth basketball sneaker also makes use of a Phylon midsole but with encapsulated heel and forefoot Zoom Air bags.

Traction. Both these Air Jordan basketball sneakers feature a durable rubber outsole with separate pods for maximum flexibility and traction.

Support and Lockdown. The Air Jordan OG and Air Jordan 13 both utilize a high-top collar for increased ankle support and stability. Both Jordan basketball sneakers also feature a lace-up closure for a locked-in feel.

Material. Both these Michael Jordan basketball sneakers make use of a combination of genuine and synthetic leather. The leather upper is designed to provide enhanced comfort, support, and a premium feel. The Air Jordan OG also makes use of textile materials for added breathability.

Price. The Air Jordan OG retails for 140 dollars while the Air Jordan 13 retails for 50 bucks more at $190.

In terms of performance technologies, the women's Air Jordan OG is no slouch and can go toe-to-toe against Michael Jordan's 13th signature sneaker. Both these retro basketball shoes are designed to provide maximum style and performance on and off the hardwood. 

Overall, the Air Jordan 13 and women's Air Jordan OG are must-cops for any sneakerhead familiar with each shoe's rich legacy.
