One Block Down presents Air Jordan 1 Mid Milan with a worldwide exclusive

One Block Down presents the worldwide exclusive of the Air Jordan 1 Mid Milan this February 19th at 11:00am CET at its brick and mortar store in Milan.

Milan is a city that’s famous for blending modern and iconic heritage styles, and the Air Jordan 1 Mid Milan is no different. The iconic Duomo, the baroque marble, the waves, the ripples—all of Milan’s unique and famous architectural heritage gets remixed and updated in this stand-out look that captures all that creative energy.

The Air Jordan 1 Mid Milan captures the timeless appeal of the OG and re-engineers it, Milanese-style. Embossed touches are inspired by Milan’s stonework and integrated leather, suede and canvas in bone white, beige and caramels evoke a close resemblance to the tones and design elements found throughout the city. A leather tag reading “MLN” hangs along the right side of the lateral panel.
