Like most variations, the Air Jordan 1 Low can’t avoid being compared to its taller, older brother. This is still the case with the silhouette’s newest colorway, “New Emerald,” whose main colors look a bit like 2019’s “Turbo Green.”
This shoe’s color blocking and flashiness are distinctive
In contrast to what it’s supposed to be based on, the “New Emerald” has its own color blocking and a different set of colors than what it’s supposed to be based on. The “Turbo Green” alternative has suede on the toe, eye stays, collar, and heel, while the bright white leather underneath is smooth. The cool green color is used on the laces, lining, and back of the tongue. The leather Swoosh and outsole, as well as the Jumpman logo, are light grey and gold, respectively.
Even though it’s not a completely new design, the “New Emerald” colorway of the Jordan 1 Low is a nice addition to the family. Whether you’re a huge Jordan fan or just like nice shoes, this colorway is different enough to be interesting, but it still feels like a classic Air Jordan.
