Jordan Brand has presented the Air Jordan 1 Mid in a “Denim” colorway that seemingly nods to the famous Levi’s x Air Jordan 1 “23/501” denim pack from 2008. Though it’s not a carbon copy of its ultra-limited counterpart — the Levi’s pair was only produced in a run of 2,323, featured elephant print detailing and was accompanied by jeans and a t-shirt — this mid-cut Air Jordan 1 does boast plenty of familiar denim style and elevated colorblocking, making sure it’s “mid” in name only.

Blue-gray denim material is present on the toebox, quarter and collar, while rich red suede with tan contrast stitching appears on the mudguard, eyestays, heel and collar flaps. This brown contrast stitching is a nod to the leather patches often found on the back of jeans, and the same shade is used to flip the script on the Swoosh — which is made of brown leather and uses red contrast stitching for an inverted look. There’s also brown detailing on the lateral collar’s ball-and-wings logo and the red nylon tongue’s Air Jordan hit. Down below, white midsoles and gum outsoles finalize the style.

This almost-but-not-quite Levi’s x Air Jordan 1 Mid doesn’t have an official release date just yet, but is expected to debut sometime this summer. Its MSRP is set at $115 USD.
