This Air Jordan 1 Mid Heads Back to ’85 for Inspiration
Slowly but surely, the stigma surrounding the Air Jordan 1 Mid is starting to dissipate. Increased demand for Air Jordan 1s and the scarcity of the OG Highs are contributing factors to its success — but it wouldn’t be doing huge numbers if it wasn’t for the continued run of killer colorways. The next to appear is another that harkens back to Mike’s earliest days with the brand, delivering a Shadow-inspired arrangement with pops of bright red to link it back to the Bulls.
Here, it’s smooth grey leather that forms the pair’s base, while overlays of black arrive in the silhouette’s traditional Kentucky/UNC blocking; that is, over the ankle flap, eyestays, Swoosh, and toe. Black nylon tongues rest beneath tonal black laces, with surrounding branding above and at the lateral ankle are painted in red. Finally, the pair is complete with a simple two-tone sole unit of black and white.
