This Air Jordan 1 Mid Is Inspired by Milan’s Distinct Architecture

Jordan Brand’s connection with Milan can be dated to 1986, the year the brand began manufacturing the Air Jordan 2 in the city, which jumpstarted its interest in fine Italian craftsmanship.

The athletic company deepens its attachment to the city with the latest iteration of the Air Jordan 1 Mid, dubbed “Milan.” The shoe features a pastel color palette as a reference to the city’s distinct spires and gothic architecture.

The upper makes use of a handful of textured leather panels including suede on the toe box and a woven fabric wrapping around the ankle collar. The shoe even comes with a premium hangtag that features the text ‘MLN’ printed in the center. Check out an official look below.
