The good news is that fans can easily pick up a pair from sneaker resale sites. The Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Black Smoke’ colorway has an average resale price of $161, according to StockX.
This ‘Black Smoke’ colorway features a Black leather upper with Smoke Gray overlays. Exposed foam and a voile midsole give the lifestyle shoe a distressed look. It’s actually a great option for fans who want Travis Scott sneakers but can’t afford the astronomical price tag.
Best of all, no one can question the shoes. If they’re good enough for a superstar like Machado, they’re good enough for anyone. Stick with FanNationKicks.com for all your sneaker news.
