Mocha - The Warm Air Jordan 1 colorway

The Jordan 1 Dark Mocha was initially set to be released in 2019 but Nike postponed the release and eventually released these sneakers in 2020.

Its history is rooted in the original Air Jordan shoes. The Dark Mocha colorway's silhouette is similar to the ones Michael Jordan wore in 1984. This warm, unique colorway is worth buying, especially if you are a collector.

If you are wondering why you should buy the Nike Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha, here are a few reasons why you should:

Looks

The sneaker's crisp mocha color blocking on soft nubuck leather gives it a clean and subtle look. The use of quality materials like suede enhances its luxurious feel.

The Jordan wings logo on the Mocha suede and the reverse black leather swoosh add to the pair's aesthetics. The crisp sail leather on the toe box, side panels and ankle portion provide a contract to the mocha suede giving an overall appealing look to this colorway.

Fit

These sneakers fit true to size. Just like other Air Jordan 1's, these shoes are quite narrow widthwise. Some people like to wear a half size bigger for more breathing room.

Materials

These Air Jordan shoes have a soft feel, featuring a combination of black smooth leather and mocha suede.

All panels in Dark Mocha are made of nubuck to give the shoes a vintage look. The forefoot and outsole are leather, featuring black color. You can tailor the look of these shoes by choosing from the white, black and sail laces Nike offers with them. Overall this colorway has decent material and build.

Ease of Care

The black and white parts of the Jordan 1 Dark Mocha are easy to maintain. A wet cloth will be enough to get most of the cleaning done. You can even use soap to get anything else. The white color helps hide dirt and dust.

As for the nubuck, it can be permanently stained or darkened from water. So, it's best to keep the shoes as dry as possible. It is also easier to scratch compared to the leather normally used in Jordans.

Pricing

The Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha was sold at a retail price of $170 when Nike launched them in 2020. You can buy them on resale if you didn't get your hands on them during the initial release.

Value

Like any other Nike product, this sneaker is a valuable collectible. The prestige that follows Nike Air Branding and the limited availability make it a good investment for wearing and resale.

Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha — Worth the Hype?
