The 2022 season of Air Jordan releases shows no signs of slowing down, with a brand new mid-cut masterpiece, the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Lakers,” debuting online today and reuniting one of Mike’s favorite rivals.
Joran Brand has paid tribute to the Lakers’ home and away uniforms by using the team’s primary colors—purple and gold—for the majority of the designs. The kits have striking white mid panels and Wings patterns, while the laces and tongues are made of black nylon. The two complementary tones extend down to the sole, which is otherwise all-black. The leather tongue tags are also a combination of the two colors, and the design is rounded off with gold accents on the toes, collars, and Swooshes.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Lakers,” as shown in the official photographs below, will be available soon at a variety of retailers and Nike.
