Model: Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT
Release Date: 2022
Editor's Notes: Nike's Air Jordan 1 is undeniably one of the most recognizable sneakers in the world. Whether or not you're a dedicated sneakerhead, thanks to the monumental legacy of Michael Jordan – the center point of Netflix's The Last Dance documentary series – you'll have definitely spotted the AJ1 Bred once or twice.
It'd be unfair to solely place the popularity of the Air Jordan 1 on its history; the sneaker has and continues to have some of the strongest colorways and collaborations of the Jordan Brand lineup as a whole.
Just recently, we saw the launch of the A Ma Maniére collab, which showcased the silhouette at its best with strict attention to detail. The drop closely followed the "Patent Bred" and fragment team-up pairs which, similarly rocked the secondary market.
Within the AJ1 family itself, there are plenty of variations, such as the Low, Mid, and Zoom CMFT; each has its fans, but none quite like the OG High. It is, however, the Zoom CMFT that is turning heads with its upcoming "Washed Blue" colorway.
The sneakers' blue and purple marbled suede overlays are the focal point of the design, creating one of the strongest Spring/Summer colorways since the AJ1 "Hyper Royal." Underlays create a balanced palate with creamy white and pale blue leather, while the Swoosh is filled with deep navy.
Despite not being the flagship product of Jordan Brand, this take on the Zoom CMFT is definitely going to be highly-desired thanks to its perfected color blocking.
