The Shadow Colorway

The shadow colorway is known for its versatility and timeless vibe. It has come a long way since the original Black/Grey colorway was launched in 1985.

Let's discuss details about some of the best-selling shadow Jordan colorways from Nike. One thing is for sure about these colorways, they age well.



This kick comes with a white leather base covered by black overlays on the mudguards, tongue, lace and Swoosh. Accents of Grey on the toe, heel and ankle complete the shadow look. A grey Jumpman on the tongue and grey Wing logo stitched on black at the heel let your friends know that you're not coming slow, you're wearing Nike Air Jordan. The shoe is built on a gray midsole, with a white midsole giving a smooth transition between the upper and the outer sole.


The upper is made from leather making this a reliable companion for your jogs. It is easy to maintain and easy on the feet. The flexible sole makes you wanna jog, again and again, it's that fun with these beauties.


These shoes sell for a good sum over their retail because of the high demand of lows since the pandemic. Though not the same thing this colorway has similarities to the Shadow Toe, making it a popular release in Nike Jordan 1 shadow colorways.


This colorway is exclusively designed for women. It's inspired by the Jordan 1 high of the same name.


The shoe features a grey leather base contrasted with black overlays. At the bottom, the sole comes in two shades, a light grey and a darker grey matching the upper. The shadow Swoosh and Wings logos represent the colorway and the prestige of the brand. The look is capped off with a black Air logo on the tongue, highlighted with a grey base.


The all-leather upper with color blocking gives these kicks durability and a clean look. The rubber sole ensures comfort and stability during mobility.


These kicks are high in demand in the women's lifestyle category. Highly recommended for the sneakerhead girls, skater girls and collectors. Definitely worth the money.


As the name suggests the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow 2.0 has the same neutral palette featured on the original Black/Grey colorway.


The upper features a black leather base with grey suede overlays. Branding details like the suede Swoosh and the Nike Air sign tag, match with the base. The Wings logo on the collar flap features both colors of this colorway. The midsole is a dull white with a blackish-grey outer sole underneath.


The use of leather and suede aligns with the symbolism of the colorway. The toughness of leather and delicate drape of the suede show hold the neutral nature of this beauty together. The Rubber cupsole with encapsulated Air cushioning delivers a smooth ride.


Built on the Original '85 Black/Grey colorway this kick is highly sought after. Get your hands on a pair at Mad Kicks before the stock runs out.
