Michael Jordan’s Nike Air Alpha Force Low Shoes

One of the more obscure sneakers that Michael Jordan wore in his career was the Nike Air Alpha Force Low.

The sneaker boasts a full-grain leather upper, as was accustomed to shoes in the 80s and 90s. An Air unit was used in the heel for impact protection.

Mike wore the shoes in a a few games in 1988, after reportedly not being a fan of his past designs in the Jordan 1 and 2. The shoe was designed by Tinker Hatfield, who also designed the Air Jordan 3 that Jordan would debut in the Dunk Contest that year. The shoe has a striking resemblance to the Air Revolution high-top, which was also designed by Tinker.

The Nike Air Alpha Force Low isn’t currently available, but the inspired Jordan Legacy 312 Low (with an identical strap) can be found at StockX and GOAT.
