Similar to the Air Jordan 1, the AJ1 Mid takes the same design elements and adds some modern upgrades for more off-court appeal. The Air Jordan 1 is a timeless piece of history in its own right and is well-known to nearly every sneakerhead and basketball fan. Recently, the Air Jordan lineup has been releasing in a rich green and black colorway that is reminiscent of some of the two-tone silhouettes from past seasons.
The upper uses black leather as the base, and a large area of green leather as the covering layer participates in the shoe design. The swoosh uses green leather to highlight the theme tone of the upper. The perforated design of the upper ensures the breathability of the upper. The presence of a green Jumpman logo atop the all-black tongue structure also ties in with the theme, creating a striking garment that further expands on the already extensive Air Jordan 1 lineage. The black wings logo is still printed in that familiar position. A sail-colored midsole and green outsole complete the upper design.
