How do Jordan 1s fit?

For me, the Air Jordan 1s fit perfectly when you go true to size. I never differ from my normal size no matter what. However if you really want a pair but can't find your size, we'd recommend going a half size up rather than trying to size down.

Are Jordan 1s comfortable?

They are ridiculously comfortable, whether it's the low, mid or high, all iterations offer all-day wearability. Being made originally as a professional basketball shoe, its packed full of technology to provide all-day comfort.

How do you keep yours clean?

I just use a specialist wipe for quick clean to wipe the leather upper, but with premium materials such as suede be careful because as these could damage the material.

How do they fit compared to other Nike styles?

Compared to other Nike silhouettes, like the Nike Air Force 1, they run smaller in fit but if you stick to your normal size you will be fine. They have a similar fit to the Air Max series, they're a true to size shoe.

What's the difference between the Air Jordan 1 Mid and High?

The only real difference between the Air Jordan 1 Mid and High is the height of the shoe itself. The mid has 8 lace holes as opposed to the 9 on the original Jordan 1 silhouette. There are some other small differences such as rarity, the logo on the tongue and the price.



Do Jordan 1s run big?

Not at all! The Air Jordan 1s fit true to size. However, if you have narrower feet and want a snug fit to avoid the inevitable toe-box crease, simply go down 0.5 size and they’ll still fit comfortably.

Are they comfortable?

Very comfortable, even for a long day of walking around. The only uncomfortable Air Jordan 1s are those made from patent material, as it’s really stiff and therefore can dig into your ankle. Something to keep in mind!

How do you clean Jordan 2s?

As with all my non-suede sneakers, I simply use specialist wipes if they do get a little dirty during day-to-day wear. For more premium materials I use a specialist cleaning solution from Jason Markk or Crep Protect.

How do Air Jordan 1s fit compared to the Nike Air Force 1?

US8 is my standard true to size and this is what fit I go for in the Jordan 1. I go 0.5 size down Nike Air Force 1s for a fully comfortable fit as they fit big.

What size are you usually?

I'm usually a US7.



Does the Air Jordan 1 run small?

The Air Jordan 1 always fits true to size. They're spot on. If you know your true size I would recommend going for that.

Are they a comfortable fit?

The Air Jordan 1 isn't the most comfortable sneaker in my collection… but it’s fine to wear as a day-to-day shoe. You can wear them all-day without any issues but you can definitely buy more comfortable trainers.

How do you keep yours clean?

I don't clean them that much but when they do need a wipe, I just use a damp cloth! I avoid cleaning my suede ones though because I don't want to damage the material.

How do Air Jordan 1s fit in comparison to Yeezys?

I would say, compared to most Yeezy silhouettes these are more reliable for your true size. A lot of Yeezy silhouettes run small so you need to size up.

What size are you usually?

I'm usually a US11 - and that's the size I go for in Air Jordan 1s.



How do they fit?

The Air Jordan 1 is pretty much bang on! Definitely get true to size for the best fit.

Are they comfortable?

They’re really comfortable because they’re fitted with Air cushioning. I can walk around in them all day without any problems! There are definitely comfier sneakers out there, but these are pretty good.

How do you keep yours clean?

For my suede ones, I use a specialist cleaner so I don’t damage the material – but for leather and patent I just use a wet wipe or damp cloth.

How do Air Jordan 1s fit compared to Vans?

The Air Jordan 1 fits quite similarly to Vans. They're both pretty true to size. And if you've got wide feet, they stretch after a few years to fit like a glove.

What size are you usually?

I’m usually a US11 in Jordan 1s, I go for a US9 or US10 in Air Force 1 and a US11 in Yeezys.
