air jordan 1 discoball: your dream dancing shoes this new year's eve

if you’re planning on putting on your dancing shoes this new year’s eve, the NIKE air jordan 1 mid discoball would undoubtedly be a flashy and festive footwear choice for the occasion. very little has been shared about the release date or availability of the sneakers yet, but official images reveal that the entire exterior of the shoe — save the sole — is canvased in tiny mirrored squares, just like the retro party prop.

while the soles are bright white with a black base, the colorway of the air jordan 1 mid ‘discoball’ is limited to a single palette of metallic silver, including the NIKE swoosh. a shimmering finish and matching silver laces gives the sneakers the classic, 70s style sensibility – when the disco ball was a nightlife staple.


in other NIKE news, kim jones, maison dior and dior men artistic director, debuted the ‘air jordan I high OG dior. available for purchase at select dior stores in april 2020, the sneakers are rumored to be the most expensive air jordans to date. while taking the silhouette of the classic NIKE air jordan 1s, the fine details of the graphic elements and material choices feature dior’s blueprint.
