While the Air Jordan 1 Mid remains a point of contention among collectors, this hasn’t inhibited Jordan Brand from debuting a slew of new styles. Though only a slight difference in collar height separates the Mid from the AJ1, the silhouette still has a long way to go in terms of colorways and storytelling to reach the cultural cache of its predecessor.
Following recently revealed women’s Mids in lime and teal, Jumpman looks to the continent of Africa for inspiration on its latest offering. Presumably inspired by the continent’s vast geological diversity, the sneaker combines an array of textures across the upper. Crackled and wrinkle textiles take over the shoe in a variety of dusty rose and aged red shades. The continent comes embroidered on the right heel tab as a final call out to the shoe’s inspiration and namesake.
While no official release date has been announced, we expect to see the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Africa” to release in the coming months.
