The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Wear-Away” Comes Pre-Worn

Wear-away uppers are certainly nothing new — especially for Nike. But that doesn’t make its latest appearance on the Air Jordan 1 Mid any less exciting.


As official images present the pair with a good degree of wear, it’s likely the upper will appear as such right out of the box. Sat atop a white base — whose surface lacks the wear-away treatment — the overlays at proffer a dark black that’s faded to an infrared 23. Elsewhere, the two instances of Jumpman branding match the latter color, while the tongue, laces, and Wings mimic its neutral counterpart. The final product, depending on how vigorously you wear the paint away, could look like a “Chicago” colorway.


Official images of adult sizes have appeared, but GS sizes are also set to release as well. Sit tight as we await further updates.


Not a fan of these? Maybe you’ll like the upcoming Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red”.






Official Images Of The Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Reverse Mocha”

Arguably one of 2022’s most anticipated sneaker releases has just appeared via official images, hinting that a release is coming sooner than later. That sneaker is none other than the Air Jordan 1 Low OG by Travis Scott predictably referred to as the “Reverse Mocha”.


Featuring a familiar color palette of sail, dark mocha, and university red, this clever design executed by Travis Scott and the Jordan Brand team completely inverts the first release that occurred back in July of 2019. Recognized for its enlarged reverse Swoosh logo that sees its belly tucked into the midsole, this Air Jordan 1 Low OG certainly alarmed Air Jordan 1 fans for the drastic change, but it has since been a catalyst for disruptive design in sneaker collaborations.


Just like the first release, the Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low features a variety of emblems such as the Cactus Jack on the heel, the type-written arrangement on the tongue and upper, and a variety of sticker-like appliques on the insole.


A release date is currently expected for July 21st, 2022; see the official images ahead and stay tuned for updates.












The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Hi-Res Red”

First teased in late April, the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Hi-Res Red” is finally set to launch tomorrow, June 17th.


A much bolder take than the debut “Wave Runner,” Ye’s upcoming release is just the second red-colored sneaker the Yeezy frontman has released since 2014’s “Red October” Nikes. Varying shades of ruby flair animate everything from the mesh base layer to the foam midsole, with the latter component also indulging in contrasting orange and green accents nodding to the original Yeezy 700. Forefoot areas keep things relatively muted, delivering a combination of greys that compliment the black suede panels along the profiles well. Underfoot, the Boost-cushioned silhouette also opts for a highly-visible shade of red for its herringbone traction, further refreshing the oftentimes drab offerings from the being formerly known as “Kanye West.”


Enjoy another set of product shots of the pair ahead, as you wait to secure your pair tomorrow, June 17th, for $260 USD.
