As of late, the colourways for the Air Jordan 1 Mid have been quite innovative. In fact, you could even argue that Jordan Brand has managed to do the unthinkable and outshine those of the High’s! With experimentation at the forefront of it’s latest iteration, the Air Jordan 1 Mid “DIY” showcases a silhouette that isn’t afraid of taking risks in order to add new ideas to an already extensive toolbox.
There’s no denying that the Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘DIY” looks overly simple at first glance, however looking at this colourway closely it’s easy to see how the true intricacies may be deceiving. As a colouring-book-turned-sneaker, Jordan Brand has decided to adorn the entire forefront and the majority of the profile with thin graphics. The underlay features a white backdrop that reinforces this intention as the patterns and prints are displayed in outlines and feature no colour. Ultimately, this allows the wearer to infuse their own personality in the kicks from the get go.
The ankle flap, heel, laces and lining are overlaid with a blacked out leather finish which actually serves to draw further attention to the graphics elsewhere and helps set the stage for the Wings and Jumpman Branding, both of which can be seen in a lime green. It’s the signature Nike Swoosh where things get interesting as Jordan Brand have made this transparent on the lateral and medial side panels so that the graphics continue to show through.
As of yet, an official release date hasn’t been announced, however sources suggest that the Air Jordan 1 Mid “DIY” will be dropping on Nike.com in various sizes over the next few months. With a subdued design that offers amazing intricacy, you’ll need to be quick to stand any chance of adding this must-have colourway to your rotation.
