The Air Jordan 1 Mid has transitioned from holding a stark disposition amidst the sneaker community to becoming a welcome sight amidst the Beaverton brand’s growing younger audience. Expanding from its inline clad-leather origins for textured grade school efforts and seasonal-appropriate outfits, the mid-top model is ready to meet the intimate winter weather head-on with this “Triple-Black” take.
WHERE TO BUY
Exploring a streetwear-ready tooling, the model’s synonymous leather build has been ditched in favor of a nubuck and suede-centered construction. Still, jet-black hues maintain the same shade despite a few textile indifferences, curing everything in sight from the laces and tongue to the heel counter, vamp and sole unit underfoot. In contrast to the deeply-rooted midnight aesthetic, the iconic Peter Moore design fancies a “University Red” finish that renders in seldom along the stitching of the winged insignia and the heel.
