It’s hard to define what people see in the thing they love. Sometimes we try to describe the feeling, images and thoughts but even those are just points of reference to give others some small sense of something that is easier experienced than translated. Often this translation-barrier limits our ability to share our joys and pains with others. Luckily, there are people gifted with expression and the ability to transfer understanding through a common medium like song, photo or some other creation that allows people to share experience and feeling. In some very special cases, a creation becomes so real and clear, people across the world can comprehend passion, pain, joy, love, etc with just a glance. Even if they can’t fully express it, they get it.
Sneakers for sneakerheads can be thought of in this way. Examples that have shaken culture are not hard to find from government to finance back to fashion. Who can look at even the most humble pair of unbranded “beaters” – and not at least wonder about comfort or about the stitching or the casual way they just seem to work.
EXAMPLES OF POPULAR BREDS
From there, a fashionable pair of kicks is obvious to human eyes. Involuntarily, glances are forced downward almost defying instinct, pride and prejudice. They can’t explain why they really want to know: What are those? In today’s sneaker world, many creations command that kind of attention but not many can do so like a pair of Jordan 1s.
Jordan 1s are indeed physical expression with a design that remains simple and fashionable. Peter Moore’s legacy as a legendary creator is firmly fixed in the timeless nature of the Jordan 1 form and undeniably that foundation was steeped in solid talent, passion and technical ability. Many people would see something admirable in Mr. Moore’s work but it took more Ito make the iconic Jordan 1.This is where Michael Jordan came in. This is also what the Jordan 1 Satin BRED represents.
The history of the Jordan 1 is a really good story – filled with controversy, defiance, guts and a whole lot of glory. Equally fascinating is the reality that a large part of the story is about color. In specific: black and red. On the surface, this colorway can be associated with Michael Jordan, the Chicago Bulls, the “BANNED” Jordan 1 and the 1985 Slam Dunk Contest. Looked at in context of our time, the BRED also stands for a level of excellence, defiance, and innovation that has transcended basketball and sneaker culture to become a part of history. From this story, we get the Jordan 1 Satin that features a unique material construction. Inspired by the classic ‘Bred’ colorway from 1985.
This release also deserves special attention given the focus on women which is part of Jordan Brand’s commitment – starting with the women’s OG White/Black release in 1998.
JORDAN 1 “PATENT BRED”
The Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘Satin Bred’ is a special edition of the iconic Air Jordan 1 that features materials reflective of the ‘Bred’ colorway from 1985. The ‘Satin Bred’ replaces the original all-leather construction with a series of silky smooth satin panels. This material pattern is also designed to pay tribute to Michael Jordan’s flight jacket collection worn in many of his most legendary games.
Satin is made from polyester or rayon, which gives the shoe a “luxurious” look. Other premium details include a white leather quilted sockliner, embroidered “Wings” logos on the heels, and metal lace eyelets.
The Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred Toe” is a spin on the classic colorway. The silhouette of the sneaker is cut similar to the original models, made with higher collar height, true-to-original panels and shapes to the original 1985 Jordan 1s. The Chicago Bulls-inspired color scheme combines the colorway of the “Bred” and “Black Toe” editions of the Air Jordan 1 with a leather build. The pair boasts a white midsole and red outsole with a contrasting material tongue.

Satin: Luxurious looking polyester and rayon.
Leather: The shoe’s detailing, such as the Swoosh, tongue tag, and collar, is made from leather.
Rubber: The outsole of the Air Jordan 1 Satin Bred is made from red rubber, which complements the rest of the color palette.
Air technology: The white midsole of the shoe is infused with Nike’s Air technology.
Satin: While satin gives the shoe its unique and luxurious appearance, it may not be as durable as traditional leather. Satin is more prone to snags, tears, and water damage, which can affect the overall lifespan of the shoe.
Spot cleaning: Use a soft cloth or sponge dipped in a mixture of mild soap and water to gently clean any stains or dirt on the satin upper. Avoid scrubbing too hard, as this can damage the fabric.
Drying: After cleaning, allow the shoes to air dry naturally. Avoid using direct heat sources such as hairdryers, as this can cause the satin to shrink or warp.
Protection: Use Sole Protector to prevent yellowing and premature sole wear and tear. Use Crease Protector to keep your shoe’s shape and protect overall quality. To help prevent future stains and damage, consider using a satin-specific protective spray or fabric protector. Be sure to test the product on before use!
Storage: Use Sole Protector before long term storage. When not in use, store your Air Jordan 1 Satin Bred in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid stacking or crushing the shoes, to avoid wrinkles and overall deformation.
The Jordan 1 Satin BREDs and BREDs in general are staples any sneaker lover should add to their collection. Enjoy yours and remember to use Sole Protector and Keep Your Sole Clean!
