For the Air Jordan 1 Mid fans, we have good news! The collection is expanding soon in many colorways, including the Tan Gum. Read on for the details, new hype for the mids and release information.
Air Jordan 1 Mid silhouettes then and now
Why do people hate Air Jordan 1 Mids? Opinions are divided on the mid version of the Jordan Air 1 silhouette, but sneakerhead or not, you've probably come across someone who hates AJ1 Mids.
The Jordan 1 Mid differs from the Jordan 1 High in two crucial ways:
- The sneaker costs less
- The sneaker is easier to cop
Every Jordan 1 High that is released sells out almost immediately. You have to be really lucky to get them at the drop, or be prepared to pay maybe more than double at a reseller. Mids, on the other hand, stay in stock much longer. This 'accessibility' has tarnished the silhouette's reputation. For the sneakerheads who will do anything to get their hands on a pair of AJ1 Highs, the Mid is an embarrassing alternative.
But something strange has happened in recent months. The Jordan 1 Mids are suddenly starting to sell. What was for years a cheap sneaker that anyone could buy in a sports shop is now becoming one of the best-selling items in the sports shoe world. As a result, the opinions of many people are changing. This is happening so fast that the once 'loathed' Mids are poised to join the ranks of sneakers of the year.
‘We’ve seen this really, really explosive growth in the Mid market, especially over the last calendar year.’ - Jesse Einhorn (2020), economist @ StockX
