The Air Jordan 1 High MM is definitely not going to dethrone the classic silhouette any time soon. According to the official product pages, this sneaker is being marketed as a “limited, elevated iteration of legendary sneakers.” As we approach the end of 2023, the Method of Make series introduces an exclusively women’s color scheme that draws inspiration from the 1980s.
But don’t be fooled, this sneaker is not stuck in the past. Upon closer inspection, you’ll see that it embraces modern trends with a plethora of fashion-forward details. The exaggerated tumbled leather panels on the upper take the aesthetics to the next level, introducing experimental propositions to the iconic Air Jordan line. And for added comfort, the unlined toe box collaborates with textile on the tongue and underlays, injecting a deconstructed feel into the model. Classic “Wings” insignias are proudly displayed on the lateral ankle flap, staying true to their traditional branding. But the tongue labels have ditched Peter Moore’s original “Nike Air” messaging in favor of a blank design.
In terms of colors, this modified Air Jordan 1 pays homage to the glorious days of the Chicago Bulls with a touch of “Sport Red” and “Dune Red.” And of course, you can’t have a sneaker without some “Black” and “White” hits, which can be found throughout the shoe. To complete the design, an “aged” midsole reminiscent of the original iteration is featured.
While we eagerly await the official launch details on nike.com, let’s take a moment to appreciate the official photos of this women’s retro version. And when the time comes, you can expect to snag a pair with “Sport Red” accents for $155 USD. Start saving those coins now, sneakerheads!
But wait, there’s more! For all you sneaker enthusiasts out there, make sure to keep an eye out for the Air Jordan 11 “Gratitude” set to drop in early December. And the best part? It caters to the entire family, so everyone can join in on the sneaker madness.
