In 1998, Jordan Brand took a great risk by branching out into women’s footwear for the first time. Women had worn Jordan’s before, but with women’s basketball starting to take off, the brand decided to make a performance basketball shoe specifically for female players. That calls Air Jordan OG
They are paying homage to the first women’s model they ever made. The Air Jordan OG features a leather and meshes upper, and the model is strongly influenced by the Air Jordan 13 that dropped the same year sharing the same “warped,” look, and the same dimples in the leather.
The shoe has a Jumpman logo on the tongue, midsole. And back, as well as a stitched W also on the back of the shoe.
The herringbone traction shows the shoe’s original purpose as a basketball shoe; however, the technology of 1998 would struggle to stand up to the sneaker of today.
Many sneakerheads and basketball fans have enquired about the reason for the lack of basketball shoes for women.
These days, with aspiring female talents having to often play in grade school versions of the sneakers, that often lack the same technology you will find in the Men’s models.
Anyone worried about the lack of basketball shoes for women should be pleased to know that the Air Jordan OG will be releasing on the 16th of January for $140.
