You don’t need to hear about how popular the Jordan 1 High is right now. You probably see it at least once a day adorning the feet of celebrities or skipping down your Instagram feed. It’s enough to make the silhouette very boring, very quickly. But it doesn’t. Why? Because the colorways are just too good.

Releasing in the US on October 31, 2020, the Jordan 1 High Dark Mocha came at the perfect time. It landed when many sneakerheads started coming around to the idea that pared-back, neutral palettes could be the way forward for a sneaker world that was reaching something like terminal velocity.
University Blue Black
If you're a Highsnob regular, you'll know that we love a University Blue colorway. This one landed in March this year and caused quite a stir with its supple leather and suede uppers.
Designed to commemorate Michael Jordan's 63-point playoff game in Boston in 1986, the Jordan 1 High Lucky Green features bright green overlays against a full-grain leather backdrop and black hits to the Swoosh and laces.
The Jordan 1 High CMFT is a great choice for those looking to diversify their rotation. We were treated to this beauty the day after Valentine's Day which was a strong consolation for any who didn't celebrate the romantic holiday.
Swap out the red of a Jordan 1 High Bred and you've got the Court Purple. This twist on the classic offered a refreshing new take when it dropped in September 2018. The minimal color-blocking makes this pair versatile but still visually punchy.
Clay Green has got to be up there with the best colors in the Nike repertoire. We can't get enough of the dusty hue in suede to the heel and collar of this pair. Mirrored by a Clay Green Swoosh and outsole, it becomes an understated protagonist.
Twist W Panda
This hairy pair was originally released to commemorate the 2019 Kentucky Derby, which gave the colorway the nickname "Shoe of the Derby". Before that, they were called the Jordan 1 High Panda, which seems much more fitting, don't you think?
Part of Nike's Co.JP initiative which revives japan-exclusive colorways for the wider market, the Jordan 1 High Midnight Navy is a collector's favorite. Best of all, you don't need to drop extortionate amounts to get this pair in your rotation.
