As of lately, the Air Jordan XX9 and the weekend releases of Air Jordan retros have been hogging all the attention. Now, this new Air Jordan I Mid colorway joins the flock. Even though this colorway is not more traditional and the classic “Nike Air” branding is absent from the tongue, it is unlikely that 23 is Back readers will not be considering copping this pair once it makes its retail debut. One of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2014 will probably be associated with it, but nothing has been confirmed by Jordan Brand yet.
Since late summer, new colorways of the Air Jordan 1 Mid have been steadily released by Jordan Brand, and now this subtle tonal Wolf Grey colorway is scheduled to hit the shelves. There are several ways in which this sneaker does not stay true to the traditional Ai Jordan I Mid design. For instance, canvas has been used for the toe box and tongue, adding a nearly Retro KO touch to this pair.
The increasingly popular comeback of the Air Jordan I Retro High OG with the “Nike Air” branding and the Air Jordan I Mid Nouveau with its casual lifestyle appeal have been overshadowing the Air Jordan I Mid. Perhaps that is why Jordan Brand has not really released any coveted colorways of the Air Jordan I Mid as of lately.
The Tropical Teal and Wolf Grey color combination of this new jordans makes it apparent that this is certainly not exactly a highly desirable colorway. Nonetheless, the tonal canvas/synthetic leather has been nicely paired with the vibrant Tropical Teal, hints of which are visible on the lining and the “Wings” logo. As mentioned, instead of a “Nike Air” logo on the tongue, it simply features a word “Air” with the Jordan Jumpan logo, both also in Tropical Teal.
As unconventional as this upcoming Air Jordan I Mid “Wolf Grey/Tropical Teal” may appear to be , 23 is Back readers will agree that it is still worth copping. However, for now they will have to keep their eyes peeled for further 2014 Jordan release dates to be announced in order to find out when these kicks will make their retail debut. On the other hand, they may also spend $105 to cop it.
