Jordan 1 Mid
The perfect blend of white, black and red tones found on this fashionable Jordan 1 Mid marks it out as one of the many fan-favorite Chicago colorways. As such, it has been constructed upon a solid Gym Red outsole, whose circular and linear grip patterns provide excellent grip to the wearer. The latter tread formations appear below the forefoot and the former under the heel, while the center of the outsole has a large indentation with embossed Nike branding, and the toe and much of the medial edge are covered in raised star shapes. This strong foundation is further bolstered by a well-cushioned midsole whose exterior is white and lightly textured, with a band of stitching lining its top edge to deliver both a compelling aesthetic and a seriously comfortable feeling underfoot.
Further up, the upper comprises various leather panels in the trio of tones that the Chicago design is so well-known for. Firstly, there is the white toe box, which contains a fan of breathable perforations, and the Gym Red mudguard surrounding it. Two more red overlays rise up behind this to delineate the connection between the forefoot and midfoot, whose flanks are white. The eyestay also comes in the vivid shade of Gym Red, as does the collar wrap behind it. Black tumbled leather can be seen on the collar beneath this last overlay, while the heel counter is completely white. A Gym Red nylon tab emerges from the top edge of this panel, looping upwards to attach to the seam on the collar’s topline, thus offering a convenient way to pull the shoe on.
Inside, the sneaker is lined with a cozy black fabric that coats the back of the tongue as well, a white patch bringing contrast to its surface. Meanwhile, the frontside of the tongue, which is entirely white, has another label sewn into it, this time in Gym Red with a white Jumpman leaping across its center. Black laces criss-cross over the tongue to match the bold tumbled leather swooshes that power down each flank. Lastly, a set of black Air Jordan Wings has been stamped into the lateral collar wrap to complete this classic Jordan 1 mid-top.
