NIKE AIR JORDAN: FAQS
AIR NIKE AIR JORDANS COMFORTABLE TO WALK IN?
As a retro high-top sneaker, Nike Air Jordans for women are comfortable to walk in, but you wouldn't be going for a jog in them.
As a vintage high-top shoe with minimal padding, the Air Jordan 1 isn't as comfortable as a typical pair of running shoes.
You can think of Jordan shoes for women as the true retro sneaker experience. They've got the old-school cool of having little to no cushioning, so they aren't the most comfortable sneakers on the market. They're not designed for running in, compared to some other sneakers out there.
Having said that, they are comfortable to walk around in, and you can wear them with almost everything.
The midsole is cushioned well enough to make it quite pleasant to wear for extended periods of time.
On top of that, the Nike Air Jordan 1 has a flexible and breathable upper part made of synthetic materials and mesh – for an easy fit that is also lightweight and breathable, in a range of colours from grey to yellow to orange to blue.
As the signature kicks of Michael Jordan, they’re great for walking or standing in, even for hours at a time. Just don't bust out a run and you'll be fine.
WHICH CAME FIRST, DUNKS OR AIR JORDANS?
The Air Jordans dropped first – by a matter of months! Both the Nike Air Jordan 1 and the Dunk were released in 1985. However, the Air Jordan 1 arrived on the scene a few short months before the Dunk did, so it takes the prize for first place by a small margin.
Part of the point of confusion is that the designs look so similar. This is no accident, as both types of sneakers were developed by the same designer from Nike, Peter Moore.
The Nike Dunks and Air Jordan 1 in Australia are high-top basketball kicks, designed for the court. As you can guess from its namesake, the Air Jordans were the signature kicks for Michael Jordan.
Since 1985 when the designs came out, it’s all been history since then. Dunk vs Air Jordan 1, among Nike sneakers in Australia, is the battle of the titans – and you can't go wrong with either.

WHERE ARE AIR JORDAN 1 SHOES MADE?
Air Jordans may be made in China or, more recently, in Vietnam, to reflect the shift in the supply chains in South-East Asia.
However, for the most part, they are still made in China, in specific factories that have been given the legal right to manufacture the Air Jordan 1 shoes.
For example, one of Nike's principal suppliers is the Pou Chen Group, a Taiwanese firm that operates the Yue Yuen plant in Dongguan, China. This factory has long been one of the key manufacturing sites for the Air Jordan 1.
Despite the fact that the majority of Air Jordan 1 shoes are made in China, a few pairs have been made on special order in other nations.
As one example, the second model of the Air Jordan 1 was actually manufactured in Italy, to create a line of sneakers that came with an extra feeling of quality to it.
If you're trying to work out whether your Jordan 1 women's are fake, it won't help much to check the label for where they were made. After all, the same countries that make the real deal also produce the fakes.
The better approach is to just stick to retailers that offer 100% authentic guaranteed Air Jordan 1 mids. Not to mention, Untied keeps its Jordan 1 mids in Australia, meaning safe and convenient payment processors plus quick shipping.
