Nike’s and Jordan’s homage to co.jp has revived many a classic — not only the Ugly Duckling pack that’s soon to finish in full but also the elusive Air Jordan 1s from the fondly remembered era.
And after bringing back the polish of the Metallic Silver, the brand is going further back to 2001 as they honor the standout Air Jordan 1 co.jp “Midnight Navy.” A close replica with subtle tweaks, the offering brings back certain memories of its original run, specifically its favor with the skate crowd back in the day and its momentous place as one of the first Hi OGs to feature navy coloring.
This titular shade dresses near all of the overlays in a premium suede, running against the side of white panels built of a tumbled leather. Swooshes, which don a finish similar to the Wings emblems adjacent, stand apart thanks to a silver metallic, while the branding at the tongue contrasts in its reserved “Nike Air” embroidery.
