With only 8,500 pairs of the Dior Air Jordan 1 releasing for world consumption, and a price tag of $2000 the Air Jordan 1 Mid 'Smoke Grey' for only £95, is the next best thing.
Made up of three greyscale colours; black, white and grey, the Jordan brand may have found the perfect balance. Premium grey leather adorns this silhouette, from front to back. A grey toe wraps around a white toe box and winds its way up the lace guard. A solid black swoosh sits against a white middle on both lateral and medial sides, almost acting as a transition between the three colours.
Black wings settle against a grey collar on the ankle, the exact opposite of the grey Air Jordan logo stitched into the black material at the top of the tongue. With white appearing on each section of this silhouette, the toe box, middle and collar; it's no surprise to see a white midsole above a grey outsole to complete the look.
