Inspired by the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 1 Mid takes the same design elements and adds some modern upgrades for a more off-court appeal. The Air Jordan 1 itself is a timeless piece of history that is almost recognizable by all sneakerheads and basketball fans alike. With the mid-top version, the AJ 1 is able to take elements of both fashion and basketball and combine them into one affordable sneaker. These high-top kicks are fitted with smooth uppers wrapped in premium materials stamped with Air Jordan Wings & Swoosh brandings. An Encapsulated Air-Sole unit keeps the heel secure and cushioned while special flex grooves in the outsole help to match the natural movements and flexures of foot.
