The Air Jordan 1 Mid LX Opti Yellow brings fresh suede to the famous retro.Reserved in the way that the pair presents in a simplistic tonal bone suede build and one-color sole unit, but bold in its overlaying TPU translucent piping Opti Yellow tint. The unique finish is applied to the pair’s stitch lines but also fully-covers the midfoot and collar eyestay panels, the tongue tag, Swoosh, and Wings. Insoles, too, are tinted in the titular hue, while branding is done in black to complete the design.
Having already been debuted by The King himself back in September, the forthcoming Nike LeBron 7 Dodgers sports the same “White,” “Rush Blue,” and “University Red” color scheme of the baseball team. Similarly to the PE, the sneaker boasts a white upper paired with blue patterned patent leather overlays and a translucent shroud. Contrasting red hits appear on the sock liner and outsole.The translucent, Flywire containing translucent side panels are overlaid with white leather trim, which is, itself, overlaid by a rush blue rand that sports a pattern of fern-like leaves. A large rush blue bordered white Swoosh is present on the lateral side, opposite a smaller rush blue one on the medial side. Lebron signatures and logo are present, respectively, on the tongue lateral and medial heels.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid Light Smoke Grey has gained popularity in sneaker culture for its unique mid-top shape and range of desirable colorways. Both aspects come into play on the “Light Smoke Grey” colorway. White leather forms the base of the upper, appearing on the perforated toe, mid-panel, and collar. Light Smoke Grey leather overlays can be found on the forefoot, eyelets, collar, and heel. A black leather Swoosh is located on each side and black “Wings” branding dots the collar. Jordan Brand finishes off the look of this subdued design with a grey nylon tongue, black laces, and black nylon tongue tab with grey Jumpman detailing.
