The demand for the Air Jordan 1 is at an all-time high, and it only seems to be growing. As a result, colorways have been careening off of the house that Mike built into customers’ eager arms. The seminal silhouette flies off shelves regardless of color scheme – though, a simple execution is almost always preferred.

Later this month, Jordan Brand is slated to release a shiny new take on the sneaker with the Air Jordan 1 Mid SE “Metallic Gold.”
It follows in the footsteps of previous gold-dipped Air Jordan 1s, like the “Gold Toe” and “Gold Top 3,” but bears more resemblance to Kawhi Leonard’s “Pass The Torch” colorway. This “Metallic Gold” pair features strikingly similar colorblocking, but upgrades the silver sheen to a golden glow.
The upper is comprised of white leather, which appears on the side panels, toeboxes, and tongues. Luxe “Metallic Gold” patent leather overlays dress the mudguards, eyestays, heel panels, and ankle-collar flaps. The upper is completed with flat black-leather ankle collars, side-panel Swooshes, and Wings logo stamps on the lateral ankle-collar flaps. The sneaker is anchored by a crisp, white-rubber midsole atop a black-rubber outsole.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid SE “Metallic Gold” is set to release November 30th on Jimmy Jazz.com in full family sizing. Visit the site early to secure your pair.
When styling the Air Jordan 1 Mid SE “Metallic Gold,” it’s important to highlight the clean black, white, and gold color scheme. For the first outfit, start with the Midas Swingman Bulls Rodman Jersey from Mitchell & Ness. This gold-plated game changer will accent the “Metallic Gold” paneling of the sneaker perfectly. Pair the jersey with the Nike Sportswear Club Fleece Joggers in black. These cozy sweats add nice contrast to it, while highlighting the black details of the sneaker. Tie it all together with the Bulls DMP Rings Snapback Hat from New Era. This black hat boasts shimmering gold branding, subtly matching the sneaker’s color scheme.
For the second outfit, start with the Nike Sportswear Full-Zip Tech Fleece Hoodie in black. This lightweight hoodie is composed of an ultracomfortable cotton and polyester blend, and matches the black accents of the sneaker. Pair the hoodie with the Satin Nylon Cargo Pants from Decibel. These stylish black cargos feature tapered ankle cuffs to help accentuate the shape of the sneaker. Complete the outfit with Jordan Jumpman Crossbody Bag. This black-and-white-bag adds an interesting dynamic to the outfit, while providing additional storage.
