Tan Lands On the Air Jordan 1 LV8D
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.
