The Jumpman is no stranger to celebrating Michael Jordan’s esteemed career, crafting reference-heavy sneakers such as the Six Rings and MVP 678. Rarely, however, have they brought these influences to classics the likes of the Air Jordan 1 Mid, though that’s to change soon with this upcoming GS colorway.
This Air Jordan 1 Mid effectively serves as a lesson on Michael Jordan’s excellence, educating the next generation on the athlete’s dominance on the court. The shoe makes several overt nods to the living legend’s time on the hardwood — or, more specifically, how he helped the Chicago Bulls win not just one but a total of six NBA championships. But the homage doesn’t end here: alongside writing the years during which those finals took place, the pair combines the signature colors of the very teams that MJ defeated all that time ago.
Enjoy a closer look at this Air Jordan 1 Mid via the retailer imagery shared ahead. A firm release date has not yet been confirmed, but it’s likely we’ll be seeing these on Nike.com and at select stores within the next few months.
Speaking of Jordans, retailer images of the Air Jordan 6 Aqua surfaced earlier in the week.
