First of all, the competition for this list of top 10 toddlers and kids Jordans was INSANE! We would’ve still struggled to put together a top 20! But after much deliberation between the Little Laces team, we finally narrowed down the list to the chosen 10. Different kids Jordans make the list for different reasons, so be sure to give this article a thorough read to decide if you agree with our picks!
Getting this list underway with an absolute banger is the kids Air Jordan 5 x Off-White ‘Sail’. First of all, the collaboration between Nike/Jordan brand and Off-White revolutionised the entire sneaker game! The impact the late Virgil Abloh had on the fashion/sneaker industry was disrupting, meaning his legacy and ideas are still ever-present today. This pair features a sail layered textile upper with black and red accents throughout. The yellowed sole creates a vintage aesthetic, and the classic Off-White zip tie in sail completes the design. The kids Air Jordan 5 is a very underrated silhouette, and this is the only pair to make the list. The Nike/Jordan x Off-White collection is extremely exclusive, so this more affordable pair makes for a great choice from the collaboration.
Next on the list is another Jordan/Nike brand collaboration, this time with Travis Scott. The kids Air Jordan 6 x Travis Scott ‘British Khaki’ takes the number 9 spot, and this shoe sure is special! Jordan/Nike brand and Travis Scott is another partnership helping to keep sneakers relevant and surprising us all with new innovative designs. Like the Air Jordan 5, the Air Jordan 6 is another underrated kids Jordan, but the two brands revive this shoe from the dead with this design! This pair features a fully suede brown upper with red and off-white accents, whilst a glow-in-the-dark translucent outsole completes the design. Can you really style your kid if they don’t wear brown? We don’t think so!
It was only a matter of time before a kids Air Jordan 4 made the list and coming in at number 8 is the kids Air Jordan 4 ‘Infrared’. This sneaker beautifully blends three shades of grey with white, black, and red to create the perfect shoe for all occasions. The darker colours allow for the shoe to be paired with more chill fits, but the red brings the shoe to life and makes a bold statement. Jordan 4s are more durable as they don’t crease easily, paired with the darker colours results in this shoe hiding their wear even when the little ones get messy at play time! The most in trend sneaker for kids are probably Jordan 4s, so this cheaper and more versatile option makes sense as an addition to any child’s wardrobe!
Travis Scott and Jordan/Nike brand take up another spot in this list with the kids Air Jordan 1 Low x Travis Scott ‘Black Phantom’ arriving at number 7. The newest addition to the collaboration utilises an all-black suede and nubuck base with white stitching throughout the upper. As always with the kids Jordan 1s in this collection, the pair flaunts the signature backwards Nike Swoosh. Simple but stylish, this black and white shoe will complement every outfit possible whilst still letting everybody know you got that heat on!
If you were scratching your head wondering how a kids Air Jordan 1 High hasn’t made the list yet, don’t worry – we got you! The kids Air Jordan 1 High ‘Starfish’ makes the list at an impressive number 6 and it’s clear to see why. This vibrant kids shoe features a white base with bright orange overlays, sail detailing on the midsole and tongue, before brown accents on the upper complete the design. One word to describe this shoe, exquisite! You can let the sun shine on this sneaker in the summer and spring, or use this pair to brighten up neutral outfits in the winter or fall, whichever the case – the kids Air Jordan 1 high ‘Starfish’ are a gem!

The bestselling kids Jordan of all time on Little Laces is the kids Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Black’, and this incredible sneaker clinches the number 5 spot. Consisting of a white leather base with black accents and a grey suede front overlay, it might just be the cleanest kids Jordan out there! Easy to style, very affordable, durable, easy to clean, the list goes on for why these will make for a perfect addition to even the pickiest kid’s sneaker rotation! Every child needs a pair of Jordan 4s – these are the pick of the bunch in terms of versatility for us.
Number 4 on our list is the iconic and legendary kids Air Jordan 1 High ‘Chicago Lost and Found’. Dressed in Chicago Bulls colours but this pair adds a little spin with a vintage look. The base is formed from a slight off-white cracked leather, whilst red and black overlays complete the colourway. The pre-yellowed midsole adds to the vintage look. As the name suggests, the aged detailing on the pair is meant to symbolise the loss of these sneakers a very long time ago when they debuted in 1985 and they have just now been found. Is there a kids Jordan more analogous with Michael Jordan himself than these? Certainly not! A little kid wearing vintage looks, how’s that for an oxymoron?!
Taking the bronze medal in 3rd place is the kids Air Jordan 1 High ‘Seafoam’. As soon as you lay eyes on this shoe, you know it’s a special one. This pair of kids Jordans flaunts a white leather base with seafoam green nubuck overlays. Complementing the sneaker are white and red ribboned laces. It’s the beautiful and soothing pastel green colour that has landed this shoe a spot in the top 3. One of our bestselling kids Jordan 1s, parents across the globe love these. On a summer’s day or on a winter’s night, these will be the centre of attention. It’s not always about bold colours, sometimes let calmer pastel colours do the talking for the kids outfits!
One thing is for certain, Travis Scott really has a foothold in the kids sneaker market with his 3rd entry into the list just falling short of the top spot! The kids Air Jordan 1 Low x Travis Scott ‘Reverse Mocha’ holds down the number 2 position. A soft suede brown base, white leather overlays, and sail off-white detailing used on the sole, laces, and backwards Nike Swoosh blends together to create poetry. Complemented by red accents, and Shakespeare has finished the poem! Jordan/Nike brand and Travis Scott helped to bring hype back to kids Air Jordan 1 Lows with this colourway, which previously trailed behind the highs! This was the bestselling kids sneaker at our 2-week popup shop in Saudi Arabia in October 2022, so the fits will be sure to get love across the globe when wearing these!

I can almost guarantee that you have never seen this pair before in your life, because it’s one of the most exclusive kids sneakers we have ever come across.

We know what you’re thinking, the top two sneakers on this list have a very similar colour scheme with white and brown – WE KNOW! Do you even follow fashion if you don’t know that brown and neutral colours are on trend right now? Please, take notes!
