Ichiro-Like Air Jordan 1 Mids to Arrive This Summer
Got the Ich?
Previewed as part of Jordan Brand’s six-piece unveiling at Paris Fashion Week, these shimmering, Ichiro-like Air Jordan 1 Mids were a clear standout, for obvious reasons.
If you’re unaware of the “Ichiro” Air Jordan 1 Sample, it surfaced on the cover of Japan’s Shoes Master magazine circa September 2017, styled in a Bred-blocked Seattle Mariners colorway:
Now that you’ve been re-familiarized, it’s easy to see the similarities. But aside from this women’s-ony Jordan 1 being a Jumpman-branded Mid cut, there are a few other differences; solid rubber outsoles have been replaced with an icy translucent finish, with the teal uppers also receiving an upgrade to a slightly higher gloss finish, as well as midsoles swapping to sail — and, of course, the Ichiro silhouette removed.
Will this release piss off the fellas? Sure. Because we’ve been waiting for this (or something like it) for a long minute now — and, unless you’re a men’s size 10.5 or below — you’re gonna have to wait a little while longer.
Grab an official look at the pair below, with an expected release to hot select Jumpman cohorts and Nike.com later this Summer. Be sure to keep it locked on our Jordan Release Dates page for more updates on the drop!
