It was back in 2014 when the Nouveau version of the Air Jordan 1 Mid was introduced by Jordan Brand. Basically, Jordan Brand designed it as a deluxe and premium version of their classic first model. Apart from the fact that its quality was much better than the usual Air Jordan 1 iterations that have hit the shelves in recent times, Air Jordan Mid Nouveau edition also featured details like a brogue-styled perforations and leather tongue tags. However, next year is scheduled to mark the 2016 Jordan releases of an Air Jordan 1 Nouveau colorway that comes in high-top form.
Jordanheads might be aware of the fact that despite its positive qualities, the Air Jordan 1 Mid Nouveau was not exactly welcomed with open arms. It can be assumed that the reason behind such a dull reception was because it was introduced in a mid-top build rather than the high-top one, which has always been more popular. Fortunately, the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Nouveau colorway that has been dubbed “Militia Green” is a high-top version.
The Air Jordan 1 Nouveau “Militia Green” features an upper that is dressed up in a combination of Black and Militia Green. Essentially, the heel and side panels are covered in Militia Green, while the ankle collar, toebox and the tongue of this sneaker are dressed up in Black. While the upper of this sneaker appears to be militarized has been counterbalanced by the Infrared hue that covers the Jordan Jumpman logo that the tongue sports. Moreover, the metallic Nike Swoosh logos covering the side panels are iridescent metallic-colored. Adding the finishing touch, the sneaker is also equipped with a combination of a White midsole and a Gum Rubber outsole.
This post is accompanied by the very first photos of the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau “Militia Green.” While the sneaker itself has been unveiled, a precise date for the Jordan release 2016 of this sneaker has yet to be confirmed and announced.
