The Air Jordan 1 Low is one of the model’s more experimental styles, and it still brings new looks to Peter Moore’s 37-year-old design. Recently, the sneaker came out in a “Copper Toe” set that is likely only for kids.

Having shiny patent leather panels makes it rather distinctive

The metallic color has been used on other NIKE products before, but it hasn’t been used much on the Air Jordan 1. Shiny patent leather panels make up the toe box and overlays. The layers around the forefoot and along the tongue helped give the “Copper Toe” name to one of the Air Jordan model’s original colorways, which was called “Black Toe.” Shiny panels are also on the heel, and the collar area has “paint splatter” that looks like gold and matches the “Swooshes” and “Wings” logos on the back. The kid’s retro doesn’t directly reference the “Defining Moments Pack” release from 2006, but the heavy use of black and champagne-like tones makes it look like that fan-favorite pair.


The Air Jordan 1 Low seems to be one of the styles that Nike is relying on the most when it comes to kids’ sizes. The Copper Toe colorway feels like it could be worn by both men and women. This could be because copper isn’t as gendered as, say, pink or purple. Of course, kids also love Jordans.
