A handful of Air Jordan retros already rumored to release throughout this year included mock-up renditions of what fans can expect, but we now have an early look at one of the upcoming releases—a brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 1.
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.
Dressed in a Smokey Mauve, Ember Glow, Light Bone, and Obsidian color scheme. This rendition of the Air Jordan 1 comes with an extended upper and straps to mimic the look of a leather racing jacket, while an aggressive traction pattern helps you put rubber to the road.
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.
