Another colorway of the latest AJ1 addendum has appeared, the Air Jordan 1 Mid Nouveau Black/Red.
The Nouveau AJ1s feature entirely monochromatic leather-and-nubuck uppers, going so far as to add embossed logoing and a tonal leather tongue-tag. This one is no different, draping the upper in buttery-smooth black and setting it on a white midsole and red outsole. The classic Jordan palette, but subtly done.
The result is, as usual, superlatively stylish, allowing the signature design of the Air Jordan 1 to take center stage without the distraction of variegated colors or wide-ranging mixes of materials.
A US release isn’t on the books officially, but the Nouveaus are expected to hit shelves as part of the Spring 2014 collection, with this being the lead-off colorway in January.
