University Blue Appears On A Women’s Air Jordan 1 Mid

The Air Jordan 1 Mid has yet to trump its taller counterpart as the most-coveted version of Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker, but it’s won over dozens of former nay-sayers through compelling colorways. For its latest attempt to turn skeptics into believers, the mid-top silhouette has employed “University Blue” and “White” again, offering it in a fresh arrangement.

At quick glance, the newly-surfaced pair resembles the University of North Carolina-appropriate Air Jordan 1 last seen in 2015 (or 2018 if you count Off-White‘s take), but closer inspection reveals a number of changes. For starters, the model indulges in a shorter trim, as evidenced by the eight – not nine – eyelets. Furthermore, the color-blocking applied to the collar and ankle panels inverses what’s appeared on past Jordans inspired by #23’s collegiate career: “Wings” insignia-branded flaps are given an off-white makeup, while the underlays on which they sit atop boast a light blue hue that matches the smooth leather panels found across most of the upper. Nike Dunk-reminiscent sole units, however, borrow a tried-and-proven color combination that applies the style’s titular blue to the made-for-basketball tread.

No official release date has been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change as springtime inches closer. In the meantime, enjoy a look at official images ahead.

For more from the Jumpman family, the Jordan 12 “Playoffs” has officially been postponed to March 2022.
