Air Jordan 1 Element, the heavy-duty AJ1s first introduced in 2021, make a return for Fall/Winter 2023 in a new “Sky J Purple” color scheme.
Lined in weatherproof GORE-TEX, the upcoming pairs from Jordan Brand incorporate a mix of nubuck and gridded textile materials. Details include 3M reflective accents, herringbone-patterned laces, and waxed side Swooshes. Text typically found on the inner face of the tongue tabs is extended outwards and GORE-TEX branding is pasted on the lateral heel counter. Rounding out the look are white midsoles and two-tone rubber outsoles melded together via asymmetric strokes.
Take a closer look at the Air Jordan 1 Element “Sky J Purple” above and look for the pairs to release via Nike and select retailers on October 14 for $200 USD.
