It might seem hard to imagine for some, but it's said that Michael Jordan favoured the Air Jordan 1 Mid even though there are many sneakerheads that prefer the High and Low design. Introduced in 1987, the Mid was a Tinker Hatfield design. He created the silhouette after he spent time speaking with Jordan about what preferences he had for his sneakers. Sneaker legend has it from that conversation that the Mid-top was born and released in several colourways with its first retro run in the 2000s due to being less popular than its counterparts. The Air Jordan 1 Mid was developed to be more of a lifestyle sneaker option as the ankle was shorter by several inches that the high-top.
The Reimagining of Classic Silhouettes
The style has seen retro remakes since the 2000s, riding the tide of the enduring love of Jordans and iconic designs that represent sneaker history to every sneaker fan around the world. The style's fit focuses on comfort while constantly evolving and developing to appeal to fans from fashion and sports-focused worlds.
The natural and synthetic leather combination provides durability for daily wear, while each pair has quality finishes. The mid-top style is available in diverse colourings, design styles, and textures, but all feature a herringbone rubber sole to provide traction to provide safety and durability.
Why Go Mid?
The Air Jordan 1 Mid has an incredible history and started, and though it lacked support after its initial launch in the states, Japan popularised the style. There it found a group of highly passionate collectors and, eventually, notable collaborations.
The style is the marmite of sneakers - you love them or hate them. Even now, though, the style is often derided for being not as great as the others, but those who love them, are die-hard fans, including MJ himself! However, as they are not always the top favourite, they are more accessible than their counterparts, making it easier to nab a pair.
If you're looking to use your Jordans on the court, then the mid-tops are popular and offer similar ankle support and lateral stability to the high-tops while being less restrictive. It really comes down to your style aesthetic for a fashion sneaker, but we think there really is a mid-style for everyone.
In short, the Jordan 1 Mid is an awesome sneaker for your collection, with a range of collaborations and colourways available. In addition, new versions regularly drop, so there are new and exciting options available for every taste,
