Despite its proclivity for experimentation, the Air Jordan 1 Mid has consistently returned to its original colorways over the years. Most recently, the silhouette debuted in a women’s-exclusive style featuring “Shadow”-inspired black and grey.
The majority of the synthetic leather used to cover the pair’s upper is pitch-black, immediately distinguishing it from one of the most iconic Air Jordan 1 debut options from 1985. The toe box, profile swooshes, and ankle underlays all feature varying shades of grey, while the branding on the top of the tongue and lateral ankle flap also has a greyscale “flair.” Underfoot, a Nike Dunk-inspired sole unit in a white and grey colour scheme keeps things simple, with the latter hue taking over the traction, further separating the original “Shadow” style from the latest black and grey retro.
Take a look at official images of the shoes below, and keep an eye out for a Nike.com launch soon.
