The Nike Air Jordan 1 Phat Low is a heavily padded, low cut version of the original Air Jordan 1 basketball shoe, which itself was also heavily used by skateboarders before the dawn of skateboard shoes. This has made the Phat Low version also appealing to that crowd due to the extra padding in the shoe and tongue region. Many different colorways have been released, including the Phat Low Premium version for the aficionado which offers more 'dress' appeal for casual or refined wear.
- Leather and synthetic upper with perforated toe for breathability
