Jordan Brand is cooking up a duo of Air Jordan 1 Highs that feature GORE-TEX membranes for protection against the toughest winter conditions.

Long-revered as a durable and versatile mainstay in sneakers, it’s no surprise that Jordan is experimenting with GORE-TEX tech on such a prolific model. Dubbed the Air Jordan 1 Element, the shoes will come in relatively unassuming colorways despite the tough tech underneath the shoes’ leather and synthetic mix uppers.

According to mockups, the first colorway will echo the Air Jordan 1 “Shadow” with grey leather heel and wing paneling giving way to a black Swoosh, black upper, and sail midsole. The second colorway is a bit less traditional and features a dark grey toebox, eyestay, and ankle material with a lighter gray heel and wing setup. The model is completed with a speckled midsole, a powder blue Swoosh, and a guava-colored Air Jordan wings logo. Both colorways feature contrasting GORE-TEX branding at the heel.

Current info places the black Air Jordan 1 Element as a November 2021 release with the sail colorway following in December, each coming in at a slightly elevated MSRP of $200. You can check out the provided mockups down below, but actual colorblocking could be subject to change. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for first looks and release updates.
