Hot on the heels of the long-awaited Dior release, another new AJ1 arrives this week. Taking on a colorway that draws comparisons with the hall-of-fame-worthy “Union” Jordan from 2018, the Nike Air Jordan 1 “Smoke Grey” hits stores on July 11. However, it’s available to shop and trade early at StockX now.
When Los Angeles streetwear destination Union LA teamed up with Jordan Brand for a collab AJ1 two years ago, the duo delivered a shoe that earned a pretty much instant place in Jordan folklore. The “Smoke Grey” uses a similar combination of red, black, and grey to that of the “Union,” adding plush grey suede overlays in a decidedly more pared-back offering.
Staying true to the heritage of the silhouette that started it all back in 1985, the “Smoke Grey” AJ1 retains the iconic Wings logo at the ankle section. Elements of the “Light Smoke Grey” that previously dropped as a Mid and the iconic Jordan 1 “Bred” colorway combine on this new addition to the family.
The “Union” Air Jordan 1 now trades for an average of around $1,100 at resale, meaning that the “Smoke Grey” could serve as a good cheaper alternative. StockX market data shows that the sneaker is currently selling for an average of $269, reaching a 52-week high of $306.
