The Air Jordan 1 Mid Nouveau released back in 2014. Essentially, it was a premium and luxurious version the classic Air Jordan 1. Details such a brogue-styled perforations, leather tongue tags and overall better quality made this a pretty nice silhouette. For some reason, it didn’t get a warm reception from the majority of the crowd. My guess is because it came in mid-top form instead of the more popular high-top build. Two years later the Air Jordan Nouveau returns and it appears to come in high-top form this time around.  Today we take a look at this upcoming release of the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau that will go by the name of the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau Militia Green.

The Air Jordan 1 Nouveau Militia Green comes in a Militia Green and Black colored upper. Militia Green is found on the side panels and heel, while the black can be found on the toebox and ankle collar and tongue of the shoe. Offsetting the militarized upper is the Infrared hit placed on the Jumpman on the tongue and more noticeably, the iridescent metallic Swooshes placed in the side panels. Rounding out the look of the shoe is the white midsole and gum rubber outsole. Take a look at the first images of the shoe above and let us know what you think about this Air Jordan 1 Nouveau set to release in 2016.

Author’s Take

When I think of the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau, I think if premium offerings. My first impression of this shoe doesn’t scream premium. Not sure what the upper is made out of, but it doesn’t look like it’s trying to be luxurious. No bueno.
