TBT: 2018’s Retro Air Jordan 1 Shadow Steals the Show … Again?
Y’all know what day it is! It’s Thursday, and Thursdays call for throwbacks to the most iconic sneakers in history! The shoe we chose this time is simply a timeless one, so it’s still trending in 2021 and any other year. A favorite silhouette, an OG drop, and a classic color blocking. Best of all worlds! This week’s TBT is to 2018’s legendary Air Jordan 1 Shadow.
The Jordan 1 Shadow: Top of the Line for Everyone
Now, tell us: Where do YOU rank them “Shadows” among the best AJ1s? They must be in the top 10 at least. But believe it or not, to some, the Jordan 1 Shadow is the most desirable of all. Why? It’s an OG, fam! A grey and black OG. Enough said! But regardless of where they fall on anyone’s list, it’s a fact that the “Shadow” is one of the most hyped sneakers to ever exist.
Nothing Beats the Vibe of a Classic’s Looks
At the time, the Retro was last seen in 2013 and dropped again making a hot return during Spring of 2018. The Air Jordan 1 Shadow Retro was undoubtedly the brand’s most awaited sneaker of the year. The shoe kept its famous black and grey tumbled leather constructed high-top. The pair featured black uppers, tongues, and laces. A cement-grey hue dressed the perforated toe box, the heel tabs, and the Swooshes. OG-style “Nike Air” branding hit the tongues while the popular “Wings” logo came stamped in black onto the grey collars.

The Shadow Retro is Returning … Sooner than Soon
As expected, a return of a nostalgic Jumpan OG caused fanfare through the roofs, back then. We remember this retro run like it was yesterday, and it was a very, very big deal. But even if you weren’t the sneaker guru you are today back in 2018, we can still make you very happy. A 2018 déjà vu is coming at you soon with the drop of the Air Jordan 1 Shadow 2.0. And since this 2.0 version looks pretty much like the 2018 OG, you might as well cop this pair if you missed out on the last one. The release is scheduled for the 15th of May, for $170. Only 10 extra bucks from the previous drop, but way more extra hype, and a shitload of revenue.
