Air Jordan 1 Mid "Milan" Draws From Classical Italian Architecture

A salute to the city’s iconic baroque stonework.

Following in the footsteps of a Dior-esque Air Jordan 1 Low “Paris,” Jordan Brand is looking to the northern Italian metropolis of Milan for an Air Jordan 1 Mid “Milan.” A salute to the city’s rich tradition of neoclassical architecture — which includes legendary buildings like the Gothic Duomo di Milano cathedral and the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent, the home of Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” — this mid-cut Air Jordan 1 proffers an undeniably premium look.

Drawing directly from the artisanal stonework of these buildings, the AJ1 Mid “Milan” mixes bone white, grey, tan and soft caramel tones on its leather, suede and canvas upper. Pieces range from ribbed tan leather on the heel and mudguard and supple grey suede on the toebox and middle eyestays. Premium caramel-colored leathers appear on the bottom eyestays and collar flaps, the latter of which also presents an artfully debossed ball-and-wings logo.

Each of these bold accents are brought together in literal and figurative senses alike by a smooth bone white leather quarter, grey textile collar and grey leather midfoot Swoosh. A white midsole and soft tan outsole finalize the stylings.

The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Milan” will release February 19 exclusively at ONE BLOCK DOWN for $130 USD. ONE BLOCK DOWN is also holding a one-day Jordan exhibition at Milan’s Museo Del 900 from midday to 4:30 PM CET on February 19. This is accompanied by a free throw shooting contest, during which purchasers of the AJ1 Mid “Milan” will have a chance to acquire ultra-rare archival Air Jordan kicks like Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” and the fragment x Air Jordan 1 at their original MSRP. A global release follows on February 22.

Elsewhere in the world of Jordan Brand, Zion Williamson‘s Air Jordan 34 “Bayou Boys” PE received an official release date.
