Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG -Defiant (Stitched Swoosh)

The Air Jordan 1 – High Defiant was released in August 2019, also known as the “Sticed Swoosh”. A very distinctive shoe that remains out of the spotlight as one of the only Jordan 1s. Some sizes can even be found before retail. And in my opinion, this is very unfair! In my review you can see why this trainer deserves more appreciation.

This shoe can definitely be called one of a kind. The colorway is black on white with red accents. All threads and stitching are red, which contrasts nicely with the black on the shoe. But the Swoosh makes this shoe very unique.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 – High Defiant is still sometimes available in stores, but not in all sizes. With any luck, you can find shoes at Stockx or GOAT for around the retail price, sometimes even below.

The special thing about this Jordan is that it only has one Swoosh. The other three appear to have been removed, with only the suture revealing that there was a Swoosh there. These red lines make up the Swoosh. The only Swoosh on this shoe is yellow (tourist yellow). This yellow color also appears on the insole.
The wing logo is completely black and is attached to the shoe with red stitching.

The material of this shoe is what we can expect from the Jordan 1. The leather is of good quality, but creases very quickly. In my case, this gave the shoe a little more roughness and was actually good for the shoe.

The shoe comes with three different laces in black, red and yellow. Plus, it comes in a standard Jordan 1 box.
