Before the continued spread of the coronavirus threw it into a confusing state of limbo, 2021’s NBA All-Star Weekend was set to be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, a city with a rich racing heritage thanks to the Indy 500. Though the weekend’s festivities may not be going down, Jordan Brand is still rolling out its slate of ASW drops, one piece of which is this racing-inspired take on the Air Jordan 1 Mid.

A simple black and white color scheme that’s been in use on the Air Jordan 1 since 1985 belies the detailed nature of the “All-Star.” Though its white leather toeboxes, quarters and collars are left unadorned — as are the black patent leather mudguard and eyestays — the patent Swooshes, heel and collar flaps all offer a carbon fiber print for a dash of clever high-speed detailing.

Another interesting flourish arrives via the alternate, circle-enclosed Jumpman logo on the tongue tag and insole. Longtime Air Jordan fans may recall this motif as a key piece of the Jordan Motorsports team’s branding. Classic white ball-and-wings logos on the collar flaps return to contrast with these stand-in graphics, and white midsoles/black outsoles round off the look.

The Air Jordan 1 Mid “All-Star” will release via Nike SNKRS Korea come February 1, retailing at ₩139,000 KRW (approximately $126 USD). A US release date has yet to be announced.
