The Air Jordan 1 Mid is no longer completely off-limits to even the savviest sneaker enthusiasts, thanks in large part to simple, refreshing colorways. Case in point?: A newly-surfaced pair covered in a summer-appropriate yellow and white scheme.
Reminiscent of inaugural “Chicago” color-blocking, the upcoming women’s-exclusive offering features a white base visible via the toe box and mid-foot; ankle flaps and collar underlays swap looks as the former opts for a “colorless” makeup instead of following surrounding overlays’ arrangement. Profile swooshes and “Wings” insignias on the profiles opt for the vibrant titular tone, creating a look similar to the Air Jordan 1 “Canary Yellow” once teased by the late Virgil Abloh. Underfoot, Peter Moore’s iconic made-for-basketball sole unit rounds out the two-tone aesthetic with bright yellow tread, adding yet another tally to the silhouette’s growing roster of refreshing, straight-forward styles perfect for the warmer seasons.
No firm Nike.com release date has been confirmed by the brand, but that’s likely to change before summer commences. In the meantime, enjoy an early look at the pair ahead, courtesy of Instagram user @fxxkvlogvi.
