Mid is now a well established silhouette within the Air Jordan brand and a style that never goes out of fashion. Indeed, they bore a close likeness to the famed Air Jordan 1 High. However, they showcase heritage schemes with loose deviations from their traditional form, adding in new materials or throwing the scheme for a loop with different arrangements. The Air Jordan 1 MID GS Chicago Black Toe makes no exception.
The Air Jordan 1 MID GS Chicago Black Toe comes in youth sizing. This new colorway is a nod to the OG Air Jordan 1 Chicago with a bit of a twist. Indeed, the style combines two popular looks of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoes: the famous “Chicago” and “Black Toe looks”. This mid-top Jordan 1 features a black leather perforated toe with contrasting red leather overlays on the forefoot, eyelets, collar and heel.
The mid-panel uses white leather. On the other hand, the Swoosh uses a black leather. A black Wings logo finishes this design and gives it its iconic silhouette. Similarly, black cotton laces and a fiery nylon Jumpman emblem on the white nylon tongue finish off the look. Finally, the rubber outsole matches the Black Toe of the Air Jordan 1 MID GS Chicago Black Toe.
This latest takes the ever-coveted, near infinitely praised “Chicago”. These mid-top Jordan keep it classic with this new colorway while still deviating from their traditional form. However, the inclusion of red thread is a new addition. The new Air Jordan 1 MID GS Chicago Black Toe is perfect all year round. They were released in April 2020.
