Nike‘s Jordan Brand has unveiled a special release Jordan 1 Mid paying homage to the shoe’s namesake, reading “Inspired By The Greatest” on the tongue of the pair.

Set to release exclusively in kids’ sizing, the unofficially dubbed “Hornets-Colored” Air Jordan 1 Mid features a variety of quirky design elements and could potentially make for a fun collectible item for fans who are unable to fit the pair. These design choices include bright blue teals, presumably a nod to the once Jordan-owned Charlotte Hornets.

Additional quirks and features include a set of patches that can be placed on the shoe’s royal blue velcro Nike Swoosh logo, namely a basketball, Air Jordan Wings logo and two Jordan jerseys. The pair also comes with a special box, with “Sneaker School”  and the Jumpman logo featured at the top.

At the time of writing, retail pricing for the pair has yet to be announced, however, a release date is expected on February 9, with more details likely to come via official Nike channels.
