Despite not being nearly has coveted amongst sneakerheads across the globe, the Air Jordan 1 Mid still makes a strong case for itself every year as it releases in various striking colorways and collaborations. With a new release calendar to fill, Jordan Brand is making room for a bevy of new iterations this year, one being this neutral focused white and gray makeup.
The impending iteration leans heavily on brighter neutrals and features subtle design modifications that allow it to stand on its own. A bright white hue leads its design as it casts over the smooth leather ankle flaps, quarters, Swooshes, tongues and overlays that surround the toe boxes. Various shadings of gray then follow suit, the lighter of which pours onto the suede forefoot overlays, toe boxes and lower heels while the latter touches the overlays that neighbor the throat as well as the mid-heel. Some small-yet-effective elements to point out include the pre-yellowed tongues and liners which channel somewhat of a vintage effect, along with the tiny and orange exposed stitch details on the lateral Swooshes and the ball-and-wings insignias that have been moved from the collars to the rear end.
As of now, there’s no exact time frame as to when these will hit the market, but you can likely expect the drop to go down sometime in 2022.
