About the Jordan 1 Low SE Silver Toe for Women

The Air Jordan 1 is the sneaker that started it all, marking the beginning of the most iconic lineage of sneakers in history. In many ways, it's responsible for launching modern-day sneaker culture as a whole—and it almost didn't happen.

History of Air Jordan 1

As the story goes, the year was 1984, and Chicago Bulls' rookie Michael Jordan was a hot commodity for endorsement deals, with sneakers naturally being paramount.

Jordan had just come off a stellar college basketball season at the University of North Carolina. He wore Converse and was a personal fan of Adidas, so he took meetings with both companies, but they never reached a deal. It seems strange today, but at the time, Michael Jordan hated Nike—so much so that he refused to take a meeting with them.

He was persuaded by his mother, Deloris Jordan, to visit the Nike campus in Oregon and listen to their pitch. His plan was to go through the motions to appease his parents and agent but he ultimately left with a contract unlike any other.

Rather than walking in the shadows of established athletes like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird (which may have been the case had he signed elsewhere), Michael Jordan shone in the Nike limelight. He was paid more than any other athlete with a sneaker endorsement at the time. Nike made him the face of its growing presence in basketball, and gave him his own sneaker line—called Air Jordan.

Jordan 1 Low SE Silver Toe

With their classic silhouette in a muted colorway, these Jordan SE Silver Toes take a low-top design to the max. A mostly black leather upper comes through with semi-reflective silver accents in the area around the Nike Swoosh and toe. As for Jordan branding, a Jordan Wings logo appears stamped on the back of the ankle, and a classic Jumpman appears stamped on the top of the tongue. Further elevating the look are the Nike Air tech in the non-slip white rubber sole, stitching details around the top of the midsole, and punctured holes added to the toe.
