Air Jordan 1 Low OG
Style Code: 705329-106
Release Date:March 19, 2016
It is easy to see why the “Midnight Navy” was such a hit during its first release. Boasting of the timeless Air Jordan 1 Low silhouette, the design makes use of two very basic colors: white and blue. Despite the simplicity of the look however, the colorway screams of elegance that makes it perfect for practically any occasion. Not surprising that it currently holds high-esteem in the publicity rankings.
In case you have not fully checked it out yet, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Midnight Navy” primarily comes in white colors with strategically placed blues in between. Unlike older models which are literally peppered with the iconic Jumpman logo, the Midnight Navy takes a more executive approach by displaying only the Swoosh design attributed to Nike. Made from the finest material, the blue shade of the Swoosh makes it stand out against the whiteness of the body. Even the tongue and laces are done in white with just the barest presence of a tag on the center of the tongue. On the tag, we’ve got the words Nike Air and the iconic Swoosh – a combination of two highly popular logos.
From the back there is the Wings logo done primarily in white with a dark blue background. Again, you will notice that instead of the customary Jumpman logo, Nike went for the older Wings logo, perfectly going with the expected classic look.
The midsole is a continuity in white capped off by a dark blue outsole that is so thin, it is actually hard to notice it against a black backdrop. Flipping the shoes backward, the bottom portion is a basic pattern of lines and logos instead of the new-school Jumpman pattern.
All in all, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Midnight Navy” is a study in tradition as Nike decides to revert to their original designs. Hardly surprising considering how these designs launched them in the market in the first place.
Scheduled for a March 19 release, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Midnight Navy” will sell for $130.
