We may have seen it all from Nike and Air Jordan. The Jordan Brand has released an all-new silhouette of the iconic Air Jordan 1 Low … and it is quite unique, to say the least. Are they slides? Are they sneakers? Technically, they’re neither—they are a slip-on mule that maintains the structure of a traditional sneaker without the hassle of laces and of course, in mule-like fashion, foregoing the heel.

The shoes were initially released in the 1980s Chicago Bulls-inspired red and black “Bred” colorway last month and are available now on the Nike website for $110, but the UNC “University Blue” colorway is the latest iteration of this one-of-a-kind shoe. And while we try to decipher exactly how we feel about the aesthetic of a mule golf shoe, there are certain familiarities that we can cling to in the meantime.

Besides the obvious slip-on feature of the shoe that takes some getting used to, the spikeless sole remains true to the Air Jordan golf-shoe archetype. The memory-foam midsole provides additional comfort while offering a seamless transition from the course to the car (or for everyday life). For an elevated finish, the luxe Carolina blue suede that covers most of the shoe is a delightful surprise—just don’t wear them if the forecast calls for rain. The lack of laces makes the shoe feel much more casual, simplifying the overall look of the shoe that would otherwise be too overwhelming.

An official launch date for these one-of-a-kind shoes has yet to be announced, but according to Sole Retriever, they are set to drop next month.

Golf mules may not be for everyone, and we are left wondering if we’ll see Nike golfers like Nelly Korda or Tony Finau (who sport the Air Jordan 1 often) rock these at their next tournament. It’s unclear if this fad will be here to stay, but we can appreciate a nice pair of slides that we’d throw on after a round. We’ll leave you to mull over the Jordan golf mules and introduce a few of our favorite post-round shoe options.
