Paying homage to one of MJ's early partnerships.
Nike is certainly no stranger when it comes to New York Knicks-inspired sneakers. After unveiling a Dunk High and Dunk Low Scrap earlier this year, the AJ 1 Mid is now getting a familiar Knicks-themed makeover, as a part of the upcoming "Wheaties" Collection
Arriving in the General Mills cereals signature colors, this Air Jordan 1 features an all-leather construction that's smooth and slick to the touch. Working on top of a crisp white base, game royal panels wrap around the toe box, lacing system, and heel. This is all contrasted by fiery rush orange hues that hit the Swoosh. The legendary Jumpman symbol is placed in the center of the tongue, while Jordan Brand's iconic winged basketball insignia is finely stamped on the collars for the recognizable AJ 1 aesthetic. Down below, you'll find a clean Nike Air midsole which offers unrivaled support and comfort both on and off the basketball court.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid Wheaties is set to release in February 2023. Set to be available in men's sizes for $125, it will drop at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select Jordan Brand retailers. Check out our Jordan release calendar and keep it locked to our Twitter and the Mobile App for your best chance to cop.
