Nike is again pulling another colorway out of the classic vault. We’ve already seen the Metallic Silver pair this year and this time it’s the Midnight Navy co.jp edition of the Air Jordan 1. These first released back in 2001 and were just as popular as a release back then as they are today. The upcoming release is almost an identical twin to the 2001 pair with just a few small tweaks.
Midnight Navy suede comprises all of the key overlay elements of this release including the forefoot, laces, ankle collar, and heals. Tumbled White leather is used for the toe box and side panels up to the ankle, underneath the Midnight Navy overlay. The combination of Suede and tumbled leather really gives this release the premium feel and treatment you’d expect from a co.jp release. A Metallic Silver swoosh accents the side along with a Silver wings logo on the ankle collar. As I mentioned before, this release is almost an identical twin with a few small tweaks, and one of those tweaks can be found on the tongue. The original 2001 release featured a Jumpman on the tongue however, this pair highlights the Nike Air logo. Finishing off the pair is a White midsole atop a Midnight Navy sole.
Like I said, there’s as much (if not more) hype for this release as the original back in 2001. Nike and Jordan Brand has been good to us in 2020 and these continue to deliver by using an iconic design, paired with classic colors, and constructed from premium materials.
