A Closer Look At The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Metallic Gold”

It seems like the sneaker community has a love/hate relationship when it comes to mid-tops. Consumers tend to be extremists, usually choosing either the high-tops or the low-tops. This overall buying trend can be seen in comparison to the limited amount of sneakers in the market that fit in between. Nevertheless, mid-tops is that happy medium that has brought value to the game. Consistently, Brand Jordan has been dropping mid-tops long as I can remember. Quietly putting out alternate colorways that have recently peaked the interests of men (and popular with women). Despite the massive appeal of the AJ1 Hi, the Mid is here in full effect to give you a new and improved makeover.

Special Edition (SE) Jordans set themselves apart due to its luxe fabrics and unique designs. To represent right, the textile tongue has the high flying Jumpman with ‘Air’ directly underneath. Near the ankle is the original MJ logo with the soaring wings. Contrast is found in the bold Black “Swoosh” check placed in the mudguard area. Mixed leather blends are the fabric foundation that keeps everything together. Perforation vents in the toe box allow adequate breathing room while with each pivotal step. Trophies were summoned to construct the Metallic Gold overlays vividly seen on the collar, heel stabilizer, throat, and toe tip. Historically, the ‘Air-Sole’ unit continues to supply lightweight cushioning. To properly absorb impact, the durable rubber outsoles provide reliable traction. If you have the heart and style of an olympian, this is your moment to go for the gold.
