The Air Jordan 1 Black Toe is one of the original Chicago Bulls inspired colorways but surprisingly it was rarely worn by Michael Jordan. Originally released in 1985, the Black Toe AJ1 was the shoe worn in the now-iconic photo that inspired the Jumpman logo. Aside from the handful of photoshoots that MJ wore the Black Toe Jordan 1 in, there are only a few games that Michael Jordan wore this colorway.
With the white, black and red color palette, the Black Toes are one of the most popular releases, whether original or retros. Over the years, the Black Toe Air Jordan 1 has released a handful of times, with the “OG” variation featuring the Nike Air branding on the tongue and insole being the most popular. The 2016 Air Jordan 1 Black Toe comes with the Nike Air branding and sold out quickly upon release.
