Jordan 1 Mid
Rich blue tones can be found across this Jordan 1 Mid, giving it a suave look. The whole shoe is set atop an Armory Navy outsole, meaning that this powerful color forms the foundation of the design. It spreads through the outsole from heel to toe, moving over the linear grip formations in the heel, past the Nike text in its center and the circular structures in the forefoot to finish on the star-shaped nodes that adorn the tip of the toe. With this solid structure taking care of stability, the white midsole deals with comfort via its foam filling and the pocket of encapsulated Air in its heel.
Meanwhile, the upper features a premium leather build with a series of layers making up its surface. In the forefoot, this consists of a white toe box decorated with perforations for breathability, and an Armory Navy forefoot mudguard. Just behind the toe box, there is a pair of overlays that fold up from the midsole, once again in deep navy blue tones, to settle atop the bottom end of the eyestay. This last feature is also Armory Navy and shares its bottom three eyelets on each side with the forefoot overlays. At the other end, it shares its uppermost eyelets with the Armory Navy collar overlay, through which black laces tie up over a white tongue.
Elsewhere, white leather constitutes the midfoot panels, which taper as they spread in the direction of the heel. Each one becomes a thin strip of material that forms another layer on the back part of the shoe, which itself consists of several pieces of leather. The mid-top collar is black, and deep blue tones cover the overlay that envelops it. Then comes the narrow strip of white, atop which rests an Armory Navy swoosh, with a heel counter in the same hue making up the very top layer.
The Nike logos stretch down the sneaker’s sidewalls, creating a standout look across the flanks, while more dynamic branding effects appear on the collar and tongue. The former is a set of white Air Jordan Wings printed onto the lateral overlay, and the latter a square patch whose Armory Navy exterior hosts a white Jumpman and the word “Air”. Black mesh padding coats the inner walls of the shoe down as far as the insole. Here, the tone switches once more to white, and a black Jumpman silhouette rounds out this timeless Jordan 1 colorway.
