The Air Jordan 1 Mid has traditionally been the more experimental version of Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker. The trend continues with the release of a new hologram-adorned pair for children.

Special Peter Moore-designed Air Jordan 1 Low

The upcoming retro, like a previously seen Air Jordan 1 Low, features a mostly black and white color scheme across its Peter Moore-designed body. The color-blocking is similar to that found on the first Air Jordan release, which was panda-friendly (which is rumored to return in 2023). At the lateral profile, a changing image of #23 himself replaces traditional swoosh branding, depicting the Chicago Bulls legend in full 1990s glory. The Jumpman logos at the top of the tongue are colored in a “Concord”-like hue, while the rest of the pair is done in the aforementioned two-tone style. Finally, the Preschool model has a unique pull tab at the heel for easier on-and-off functionality.


The hologram-covered pair is the latest in a long line of Air Jordan 1 Mid experiments. The original colorways had a huge impact on Nike at the time and seem to be making a huge comeback. We think this experiment will be a big hit with kids, just as its predecessors were with the general public.
