We’ve seen Michael Jordan’s signature first sneaker in a number of variations but this one is looking like a dream.

No one expected the Air Jordan 1 to be the cultural phenomenon that it is today when it first dropped in 1984. Decades of dominance has led to Jordan Brand dropping multiple iterations of the Air Jordan 1 from low-tops and mids to sole-swapped versions like the Air Jordan 1 React. According to leaked images surfacing online, the sneaker will undergo yet another sole swap, this time with Nike’s Zoom Air midsole. Get a closer look at the sneaker dubbed the Air Jordan 1 Zoom.

Reflective material lines the uppers of the Air Jordan 1 Zoom.

The indication of a Zoom Air unit can be seen from the insole and tongue branding as well as the “Zoom” tab just below the ankle overlay. The Zoom Air adds that extra bit of cushioning and responsiveness. But that’s not all. The Air Jordan 1 Zoom also features a striking makeup of reflective, iridescent uppers that will undoubtedly win over fans of the iconic silhouette.

According to @Kickwhoshow, the sneaker will drop sometime in December 2019. Whether that’s true remains to be seen. Check back with us when more details arrive soon.
