Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 1 Mid has released an “Incredible Hulk” colorway design. This unofficial nickname’s inspiration is easy to see, thanks to colored accents that perfectly match the gamma radiation-powered brawler’s green skin and purple shorts.
As is par for the course on most mid-cut Air Jordan 1s, the upper is constructed of a smooth leather. White is used for the toebox and quarter panels, while the “Incredible Hulk” shades take up residence on overlays and accents. Green is used on mudguards, eyestays, heels and collar flaps, with purple gracing the collar, midfoot Swoosh and ball-and-wings logo. White nylon tongues offer one final touch of branding with a fabric Jumpman tag, and a white midsole/purple outsole combo combines the look.
Air Jordan fans may recall that this is not the first time comic book-style purple and green have been used on the Jumpman’s retro products. An Air Jordan 3 “Joker” released in 2013, although it used a black base and more neon-toned green accents. Moving from comics to courts, the purple/green mix also offers shades of old-school Milwaukee Bucks uniforms.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Incredible Hulk” is available on the Nike webstore now, and retails for $115 USD.
