Tan Lands On the Air Jordan 1 LV8D

News on this release was originally published on January 14, 2022.

Update February 11, 2022: Official images have now landed for the upcoming Air Jordan 1 LV8D in the tan/white colourway! There is still no release date locked in for these elevated AJ1s, however you can expect to see them land this year. Stay locked to SF for all of the incoming updates.

The Air Jordan 1 LV8D (a fancy way to spell 'elevated') combines the top half of an Air Jordan 1 Low with an ultra-thick platform sole, 'elevating' its look both literally and figuratively. It's been seen in an OG-inspired 'Bred' colourway as well as a simple white and grey, and now a third pair has joined the party – namely a mixture of white and tan.

Uppers are without frills, offering a timeless two-tone colourblocking scheme and a mixture of tan and white leathers. The two main differences from a normal Air Jordan 1 Low, however, are seen on the tongue and the heel tab: the former features no tag, while the latter is equipped with a minimal outlined take on Jordan Brand's ball-and-wings logo.

Midsoles, of course, are enormous, likely more than twice as thick as a normal Air Jordan 1 midsole. They're also smooth in texture, a departure from the standard texture rubber used on Michael Jordan's first signature sneaker. A finishing dash of flair is supplied by premium cork insoles.

At the time of writing, a release date for this white and tan Air Jordan 1 Low LV8D is yet to be announced. However, it – and the other above-mentioned colourways – are likely to hit retailers sometime in 2022.
