Air Jordan Alpha 1 (Kids)At first glance the Air Jordan Alpha 1 looks identical to the classic Air Jordan 1, but it's not. Once you examine the sneaker you will notice a thicker midsole, minimal stitching on the outsole, and a different pattern on the outsole. This evolution of the Air Jordan 1 also has technological improvements, which is why Jordan Brand team members (like Dwayne Wade) have also sported them on the court.
