For those of us who are big fans of everything related to cool kicks, there is one that we just can't seem to get enough of.

Since 1985, the Air Jordan 1 has been blazing past us on basketball courts while also bringing fun and fashion to college campuses, street sidewalks, and even in nightclubs and restaurants worldwide.

What is it about the Air Jordan 1 that makes it a shoe that we just can't seem to quit?

The Air Jordan 1 That Started it All

It was more than thirty years ago that Michael Jordan first walked onto the Chicago Bulls basketball court in the first ever Air Jordan 1 that was designed with only him in mind.

The iconic colorway of the Bull's red, black and white trademark team colors earned Jordan a lot of controversy that year.

Here is the first ever Air Jordan 1

It's been rumored that every time he stepped onto the court, he was fined $5,000 for wearing the non-NBA-sanctioned sneakers.

But little did he, Nike, or the rest of the world know at that moment what was going to come of this famed sneaker eventually!

How Did the Air Jordan 1 Mid Get Its Start?

Though the Air Jordan 1 High was the first sneaker that Nike designed in this line of basketball shoes, it soon became clear that people were beginning to beg for more.

Though the Air Jordan 1 High is a great basketball shoe, thanks to its stability and creative details that work well for a basketball player's lateral movement, it wasn't the most comfortable shoe for others to wear.

Not too long after the release of the Air Jordan 1 High came the release of two other wildly popular Air Jordan 1 sneakers - the Air Jordan 1 Mid and the Air Jordan 1 Low.

There have been some Air Jordan 1 Low and Air Jordan 1 Mid sneakers that not only sell super quickly but also earned themselves a spot in the list of favorite sneakers for years to come.

The Air Jordan 1 Mid Linen - Yet Another Air Jordan 1 That is Here to Stay

The Air Jordan 1 Mid Linen was first released in November of 2021 and right away was a collector's favorite.

Why? Well...the shoe is clearly cool.

Sporting a unique color overlay, this pair of sneakers took a classic design and made it unique - a high bar for a shoe like the Air Jordan 1 Mid that seems to constantly come out looking fresh and different.

Here is the Air Jordan Mid Linen

With the Air Jordan 1 Mid Linen, the classic Air Jordan 1 leather base sticks with the iconic white that we all have come to know and love.

But where Nike took this Air Jordan 1, Mid Linen, up a notch is that the designers added an interesting contrast with the College Grey overlays and trademark swooshes that identify this sneaker as the Nike Air Jordan 1.

Nike has confirmed its commitment to sticking close to the traditional style of the Air Jordan 1 Mid with the College Grey overlays being included in the original contrasting heel and the original box toe that we all associate with the Air Jordan 1 Mid branding.

Though these sneakers are just as durable and high-quality as any other Air Jordan 1 that Nike has manufactured, there is something about the white leather and College Grey overlays that gives it a slightly more sophisticated look.
