Jordan 1 Mid
The monochrome design of this Jordan 1 Mid gives it a timeless elegance. Known as Triple White, it is built upon an all-white rubber sole unit that comprises an outsole full of grippy structures, such as pivot-circles and blocky lugs, and a midsole containing a mixture of foam and Air cushioning. While the former provides high levels of traction underfoot, the latter brings comfort, making this a sneaker that is both practical and highly wearable at the same time.
On the upper, more graceful white tones can be seen, firstly on the smooth leather portions of the toe box, the midfoot and the top of the heel, and then again through the textured leather of the overlays. Some of these panels lie across the forefoot in the shape of a protective mudguard and a pair of overlays that reach from the midsole to land atop the eyestay. The others appear round the back of the foot, where the heel counter sits below a collar wrap whose lateral side is subtly debossed with a pair of Air Jordan Wings.
More intricate branding effects can be found on the square patch at the top of the tongue, both features filled out in the same stunning white as the rest of the shoe. Here, a Jumpman has been artfully sewn into the patch, and another one stands out more clearly against the off-white surface of the sockliner. The padded mid-top collar and inner lining are also pure white, as are the tumbled leather swooshes that adorn the flanks of this majestic sneaker.
