Original Story (09/03/21): It appears that Nike will be releasing a footwear collection this year with a theme of “Familia” (family) and design cues inspired by ancient Mayan and Aztec civilization. This could be for the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), or possibly in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Following a look at the Dunk Low in this collection, we now have a look at an Air Jordan 1 Mid.
While the Dunk Low had a lizard theme, this Air Jordan 1 Mid appears to draw inspiration from the black jaguar and Aztec jaguar warriors. It comes dressed in black suede on the quarter panels with overlays featuring an embossed jaguar print. The toe box comes in red and is surrounded by small tooth-like embellishments. The Swoosh is embroidered and features a colorful arrow design. The Jordan Wings logo features a similar colorful design. Additional features include an animal glyph on the lateral heel and and “Familia” under the Jumpman on the tongue tag.
Check out photos of the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Siempre Familia” below. Expect a release this fall via nike.com and select retailers.
