How Much do 2021 Jordans Cost?

The price of Air Jordans varies greatly depending on how rare and in-demand they are. 

The most popular style of Jordans is the Air Jordan I which range in price from $100 to $180. With that being said, the Jordan 11 Blackout Edition sneakers are worth a reported $22,000. If you want an autographed pair, be prepared to spend over $25,000.

When buying 2021 Jordans you also have to consider high-top vs low-top. High-top sneakers retail for around $170 while you can snag a pair of mid or low-cuts for as little as $90 or as much as $120. 

Air Jordans first hit the sneaker seen in the 80s after Michael Jordan signed a five-year contract with Nike. The sneaker brand’s mission was to create a luxury product that matched Jordan’s impressive talent. 

With 2021 Jordans ranging in price from $200 to well over $300, it appears Nike’s vision was a success.

Choosing the Best Air Jordans

Before hitting the checkout counter and securing yourself a pair of 2021 Jordans, there are a few things you should know about these trending sneakers. 

From the cut and style to the color, there’s more to consider than just the price tag.

High-Top, Mid, and Low-Cut

Choosing between a high-top, mid, or low-cut sneaker is about more than just style. High-top and mid-cut Jordans offer more ankle support, which is ideal for athletes hitting the court. 

Mid-cut Jordans are high enough to keep out dirt and also have metal lacing hooks so you can tighten or loosen them to fit your comfort. Mid Air Jordans are also versatile when it comes to your style since they work well with both shorts and pants. 

Low-cut designs are lightweight and more minimalistic in terms of the intricacy of their design. Low-cut Jordans are perfect for less intense activities and for accessorizing your favorite outfits. 

Colors and Designs

We’re all familiar with the infamous Nike swoosh found on most Air Jordans, but this isn’t the only available design.

For example, Travis Scott made the reverse-swoosh popular with the release of his Air Jordans in July 2019.

In addition to the classic Air Jordan I style, you also have 22 others to choose from. Buying 2021 Jordans is all about your preference and budget.

When it comes to color schemes, the two most popular Jordan colorways are the OG and the New colorway. The OG colorway showcases the original Nike Air Jordan color scheme, which is black and red for the Jordan 1 and white cement for the Jordan 4s.

The black and red colorway represents Jordan’s time spent playing for the Chicago Bulls. This same color scheme is utilized in new releases as a way to appeal to diehard fans and followers.

OG Jordans vs. Retro

One more thing to consider when choosing 2021 Jordans is retro styles vs. OG. Retro Jordans are styled after the original Air Jordan design and range from I to XVIII. 

OG Jordans also have the Air Jordan’s classic design with a few minor changes. These sneakers are released periodically to drum up interest and buzz. Examples include the Jordan 4 Military and Jordan 1 Shadow.
