The Air Jordan 1 Mid Black/Dark Grey-Infrared 23 has begun hitting stores this week. This is a winterized classic we can get behind.
No, technically the shoe doesn’t sport any “Sneakerboot” or “Winter” designation to indicate this is anything but a standard AJ1 Mid. But materials go a long way, as warm wool-like textile is added to the collar and tongue, a protective, durable style of leather is used throughout the upper — especially note the lace-strap and toebox – and boot-style laces update the usual flat set.
But just as importantly, the shoe remembers where it came from, donning black, red, white and grey for a quintessential Jordan look, even if the shoe seems destined more for outdoor winter weather than indoor hardwood.
Take a closer look below, and head to select Jordan accounts now to pick up a pair, including Louisiana’s Sneaker Politics.
