It’s been a decade since we discovered a new love. A new love for a dope Jordan I Mid (never thought you’d hear “dope” and “Jordan I Mid” in the same sentence, did you? that released way back in 2007 as part of the “Old Love, New Love” pack.
Yes, the “New Love” I mids are getting a retro, and we couldn’t be more hyped. The re-release isn’t 100% true to the original (of course), as it doesn’t feature the transparent plastic Wings logo on the ankle color, just a regular embossed one, and it doesn’t come laced up with the yellow strings … but at least that’s an easy fix.
As mentioned above, it’s rare that we’re fans of a Jordan I Mid, as the highs just flat-out look better, but these are a clean, classic shoe. It’ll be very interesting to see how they sell whenever they release (there isn’t an official date just yet), as the hype for Jordan I’s is high right now with the impending release of the Royals this weekend. Will the thirst for Jordan I’s outweigh the fact that nobody really cares about the mids nowadays? We’ll just have to wait and see.
On a personal note, I know I’ll be getting a pair though. My last pair was left in a storage locker in Arizona … and I have no idea what my ex-girlfriend did with them. I think it’s due time for a re-up.
