Michael Jordan Holograms Appear on This Duo of Air Jordan 1s!

News on this release was first posted June 2, 2022.

Update June 6, 2022: Last week, official images of an Air Jordan 1 Mid with holographic Michael Jordan embellishments surfaced! Now it looks like a low-top counterpart (also for kids) will be hitting the shelves. Check out the pics here and keep it locked for a release date.

Jordans may be ubiquitous in the scene, but younger sneakerheads may not realise there’s a man behind their favourite sneakers. This new Air Jordan 1 Mid plans to teach them early, as this kids’ pair straight up has a big hologram of Michael Jordan on the side.

Starting with the familiar black and white combo (something the new generation has seemingly suddenly started calling ‘Panda’ – please stop), the lateral sides of these AJ1s depict a young MJ in full flight. Interestingly enough, he is not in the iconic ‘Jumpman’ pose that came to represent the brand. While the official shots don’t clearly show it, it looks like the other side of the hologram changes to a cartoon version of the GOAT, with additional patterns behind him.

On the design front, these tiny Jays naturally have to make some compromises. There’s only enough room for six eyelets (versus the nine of adult high-cut pairs), but it gets a snazzy heel pull tab to help little hands put them on. The tongue logo is finished in purple – perhaps it’s ‘Concord’, which would be a nice detail.

Stay tuned for release info. While this pair appears in very smol sizing, it’s likely there are enough interested adults to warrant releasing these 1s in bigger sizes.
