As Jordan Brand begins to ready its offerings for the Spring, the Beaverton-based brand is looking towards introspective themes to lead the upcoming releases design elements. Widely recognized for Robin Williams use of the poem in Dead Poets Society, the floral imagery of Robert Herrick’s poem To The Virgins, to Make Much of Time serves as the main inspiration for the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Floral Bed”.
As such, floral and pastel hues envelop the entirety of the silhouette, casting “Sail” shades across its tumbled leather overlays while an ever-so light pistachio fills in the smooth leather base layer. In stark contrast, a vibrant violet outfits the laces and sock liner in tandem with the heel and collar panels whereas a contrasting titular red applies seldom inclusions along its tongue lining and branding. In muted fashion, a rose gold Swoosh extends in premium fashion along both sides of the silhouette before a boisterous collection of floral imagery clothes the ankle’s hidden base layer alongside its tread accented by a semi-translucent outsole.
Branded packaging too, harkens the first line of Herrick’s poem in concert with attributes akin to each flower that appears on the silhouette. While we sit tight on the pair’s expected release next year, enjoy official images of the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Floral Bed” below in the meantime.
