Over several decades, the Air Jordan brand has achieved a nice equilibrium between classic and forward-thinking styles. A tiki leaf-inspired costume has recently been added to the much-maligned Nike Jordan 1 Mid.
Embroidered leaf shapes can be found all over the heel and collar area of the impending retro, reminiscent of a previously spotted Jordan Delta 3 Low. Sued and leather construction can be seen from the forefoot to the midfoot. The profile swooshes have been replaced with a stitched design, similar to the aesthetic of some of the brand’s commemorative colorways. And last, the “aged” appearance of the midsoles gives the contemporary Air Jordan 1 a sense of history.
See official photographs of the shoes below; they will be available on Nike.com in March 2023.
