We’re all currently focused on how we’re grabbing a pair of the Royal 1s this weekend, but there’s more good news on the horizon for you Air Jordan 1 lovers out there: the Air Jordan 1 Mid “New Love” will be getting a proper retro ten years after it originally dropped in 2007 in the not-so-distant future.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid has always seemed like the unloved stepchild of the Air Jordan 1 line. The lows have always been a great summer staple recently revamped by the OG rendition getting prime Wings placement on the heel. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG of course, features all of the 1985 original branding complete with ‘Nike Air’ stamps of approval on the tongue tag and more, and Jordan Brand continues to bring our favorite original colorways back in an act of valor. But what about the Mid? Today one of the best releases in the mid-top’s history gets an official look featuring that head-turning Wu-Tang Clan-esque finish of Black and Varsity Maize while Jumpman branding returns to the heel and tongue.
There is a bit of difference here though when compared to a preview from not so long ago: that ‘Wings’ ankle collar branding no longer features that transparent plastic pendant stitched into place that was found on the original 2007 release and instead, the ‘Wings’ get the traditional stamp of approval like so many AJ1 Highs today. We still don’t have an official Release Date yet, but check out a full detailed look at the Jordan 1 Mid New Love below and stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.
