The “Black Toe” is one of the most popular color schemes that Jordan Brand and it is widely recognized for appearing over the Air Jordan 1. The Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe,” which originally debuted back in 1985, and its most recent comeback happened on November 5th, 2016 when it returned to retail at a price of $160. The sneaker has also gotten restocked a few times since then, such as on August 9th, 2017, which was only available to Nike+ members using the Nike SNKRS app. Jordan Brand is now mimicking the “Black Toe” color scheme using various hues for the Air Jordan 1 and its low-top counterpart.
The signature, recognizable trait of the “Black Toe” colorway was the fact that most of the sneaker was dressed up in Black and White. The contrasting Red hue appeared over the ankle collars and the heels, and covered the outsoles entirely. The colorway got its nickname from the Black-colored overlays around the toes. The three brand new “Black Toe” variations of the Air Jordadn 1 High seem to have been given their own individual nicknames, namely “Blue Moon,” “Clay Green” and “Yellow Ochre.” Of course, their nickname refers to the contrasting hue that adds a pop of distinct color onto them.
As mentioned, the Air Jordan 1 Low is also receiving the “Black Toe” treatment with two different colorways. However, the color blocking appears to vary slightly. While they have not been nicknamed, the contrasting hue that appears over them is Grey and Teal, respectively. However, unlike the original “Black Toe” colorway, the respective contrasting hue also appears over the “Jumpman” and “23” branding at the front, and covers most of them the toes, with the exception of the Black-colored overlays around them
