Sneaker variety seems to increase with each passing year. This is a very good thing for enthusiasts at all levels. There is more good stuff to go around these days, more ways than ever to carve out your unique personal taste in footwear. The options available these days are so numerous, there are quite a few models out there with multiple different variations they can release at one time. The Air Jordan 1 is a prime example.

With the original 1985 hightop having returned to our consciousness by way of regular releases throughout the last year, the demand for AJ1s proved so strong that even with the Retro High OG pairs, Jordan 1s still moved units across a variety of additional styles. We’ve broken down the differences between two of the midtop variations here today: the established Air Jordan 1 Mid and the new Nouveau style that adds a few upscale details you’ll see explained in the following pages.

The Air Jordan 1 Mid Nouveau is available now on Sneaker Politics in two new colorways.


sneakernews...what about comfort...i love my aj 1s...have the ogs, mids and nouveaus and nouveaus win hands down...due to the solarsoft insoles. I wont buy anymore mids...the only exception will be OG colorways...ill go as far as saying the nouveaus are the most comfortable aj 1s ever.


How many different variants are there for the air jordan 1!? I know of the og, mid, high!?, low v2, and now these nouveau, I don't even think I know how to say it correctly lol
