Conceptually, there’s nothing quite new about the Air Jordan 1 Low LV8D. Many a release before has played with the proportions of the same silhouette, sometimes in more eccentric ways. Platform soles, too, are a common addition to Nike offerings, and yet the design still feels visually jarring. But we may soon grow used to the new model — especially if it continues to release simple colorways such as this upcoming White and Grey pair. Starting with its bottom, the oversized midsole remains intact, dressed with a smooth coat of white paint. Underfoot, a bright grey contrasts ever-so-slightly, while also complementing the Swoosh and leather overlays just above. The lighter of the two aforementioned neutrals outfits the rest of the base as well, appearing across the toe, mid-panel, and lace unit.
