It’s arguably the most iconic pair the sneaker industry has ever seen. Every version and re-release was bigger than the one before. And every new generation of sneakerheads fell for it the second they joined the game. The most highly-regarded Air Jordan 1 Black toe, will bless us and drop once again in August.
The Backstory: Air Jordan 1 Black Toe
Michael Jordan’s unique skill set and incredible leaping ability meant he would catch the attention of major names from the sports industry. But signing that epic Nike deal was another level of attention!
As the NBA superstar settled in Chicago, it was a no-brainer that the Chicago Bulls’ color scheme had to be included in his first signature sneakers. “Banned” was the first Air Jordan 1 to ever see the light of day. Shortly after, the “Chicago” and “Black Toe” colorways followed. All of which incorporated shades from the Bulls’ uniforms.
Although MJ didn’t wear the “Black Toe” much on-court during his rookie season, those sneakers were everywhere else. They appeared in many promotional ads and even Bulls team photos. But their most notable appearance was in that photo. The photograph that helped brand Air Jordans big time!
The infamous picture features MJ in his flight suit bottoms and Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” with the Chicago skyline as the background. Major credit goes to this image for inspiring the Jumpman logo we know, and love, today.
Reappearances of The Black Toe
After that first OG release back in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 Black Toe released again a few more times. While not all black toe versions are exact copies of the original release, they all were hits at the time of their release. To date, the black toes released in 1985, 2013, and 2016. However, the Jordans that resembles these Black toes the most are the Satin Shattered Backboards from 2018. Those Js sent off the same high-end vibes by the way of premium satin overlays.
And on August 17th, 2019, the Air Jordan 1 Black toe will see a new release, with a twist. Similarly to the OGs, the base of this upcoming AJ1 is white leather and it features a red heel and a black mudguard. However, the difference, and luxury lies in the bold red satin that dresses the heel and collar flaps. Another difference is the ball and wings logo, which is a metal badge rather than a leather patch. BTW, if you’re too worried about keeping your Jordans clean, read this piece.
As we write this piece, 53 pair of the Air Jordan 1 Satin Black Toe were sold already. And the price tag looks pretty big. The average resale price, for now, is around $650 to $700. And while that does not compare to the $1K+ you could’ve made on the Black Yeezy 350s, but it sure is a good profit.
Now, in case you’re looking for the highest chance to cop these Jordans, AIO Bot is the bot for you. AIO Bot was the only sneaker bot to actually cop off of Footsites on the past 4 releases. With over 5,000 pairs of Lundmarks only checked out by our users.

Building on Previous Success (Satin SBB)
It makes sense that this resale value would dip a bit once all pairs are listed for sale. All sneakers do. But the black toes will always be a must-cop. Since they resemble the Satin Shattered Backboards from last year so much, they might as well be worth as much. So we’re expecting an average reselling price that would settle on $600.
