Sneaker Heights

Nike Air Jordan 1

Height: 2.1cm (0.83in)

How much height do Nike Air Jordans add?
Mid Black version


Nike Air Jordan 1 are basketball sneakers, first released in the mid 1980's. Michael Jordan's signature sneaker, the Jordan brand has been a popular shoe and still a big seller today.

In terms of thickness, the outsole measures around 3cm, but the actual height they provide is under an inch. I measured the Mid version of the Jordan 1's and found them to give around 2.1cm, or a solid 0.8 inches of height. As a basketball sneaker, that's below average thickness.
