As you know, 2018 has been one of the busiest years on record in the history of the timeless Air Jordan 1. Between original colorway drops, remixed takes on fan-favorites, and high profile collaborations with industry heavy hitters such as Union and even Paris-Saint Germain, it seems like there is a must-have AJ1 dropping just about every month – if not more. Beyond that, the oft-slept on Jordan 1 Mid is enjoying its own bustling campaign, with a bounty of in-line releases with flavorful color schemes that often times harken back to its “big brother” of sorts. Dressed in a vibrant array of vivid hues including teal, purple, red, and golden yellow, this upcoming offering touches on the more playful and audacious end in contrast with previous understated versions such as the white/black/silver that just recently hit stores. An official look is just below so expect its Nike.com drop to go down in the near future.
It’s been a good year for ladies-only Air Jordan 1s. From the “Satin Shattered Backboard” to the “AWOK” Jordan 1 High Zip in collaboration with Vogue, female sneakerheads have had an opportunity to get their hands on many a desirable pair. Now, the AJ1 has surfaced in another special makeup for the ladies: an all-black mid-top dressed in shiny patent leather, a material the classic silhouette is no stranger to. The entire upper is dressed in the eye-catching material, making for a look that’s understated in color but flashy in concept, and the stitched seams provide an interesting extra touch of textured detailing. The rest of the shoe is then kept simple, as the midsole and outsole are also done up in black. Equally at home being rocked with a dressy pantsuit as they are with a comfy pair of jeans, these new Air Jordan 1 Mids are available now at Finish Line for a standard retail price of $110 USD.
Thanks to the ever-popular “Shattered Backboard” line of Air Jordan 1s, orange, sail and black has become a hot color combo for the legendary silhouette. The Air Jordan 1 Mid has gotten in on the Halloween-esque color-blocked fun before, and now it’s set to do so again with the upcoming release of a grade school-only “Team Orange” colorway. The upper’s overlays feature a bold orange tumbled leather, while a faint peach appears on the underlays for an interesting tonal contrast. The collar and midfoot Swoosh both call upon a stark black for a touch of dark detailing, and the likeable look is then rounded off by blue laces/tongue detailing, a white midsole, and an orange outsole. These new 1 Mids will likely release later this month on Nike.com for $90 USD, so enjoy a full set of official images below, and keep it locked right here for info on a specific release date as it becomes available.
