Jordan 1 Mid
"Light Smoke Grey"
The colour combinations on this Jordan 1 Mid come together with artfully crafted features to create a sophisticated sneaker. Beginning underfoot, the rubber cupsole is divided into a Light Smoke Grey outsole covered in a variety of grip patterns for high-level traction and a white midsole that is filled with comfortable cushioning, including a pocket of bouncy Nike Air.
Above the white stitching that encircles the midsole is an upper constructed from smooth leather panels in three complementary tones. The base layer is white, providing a neutral canvas for the other colours to stand out against. Light Smoke Grey is the first of these, appearing on the forefoot mudguard and overlays, the heel panel, the eyestay and the overlay that wraps around the ankle. The second hue is a shade of black known as Anthracite. As well as coating the swooshes that adorn the shoe’s sidewalls, it can be seen behind the grey overlay on the collar and again on the tongue. Anthracite tones also extend to the inner lining before the insole switches back once more to grey.
Back on the outer, the toe box has been marked with a series of perforations that ventilate the foot for added comfort. Threading up through the eyestay away from the toe is a set of white laces that contrasts with the black of the tongue beneath. At the top of this feature is a Light Smoke Grey label printed with the memorable Jumpman logo in white. This is just one of several pieces of branding to highlight the design, another being the white Air Jordan Wings on the lateral overlay. The final one is another Jumpman that can be found in grey on the insole to round out this suave mid-top sneaker.
