3:22 Review of sneakers
Just like the Chicago and Europe exclusive all-white pairs, this new iteration of the Air Jordan 1 has been deconstructed by Virgil Abloh and is done in the OG UNC colorway.
The OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 comes dressed in a classic UNC color scheme, but that’s where the traditional aspect of the shoe ends. There’s plenty of things that make the shoe stand out from your regular-constructed Air Jordan 1 High. Think of it as a deconstructed version of the model. For starters, the medial side gets rid of the Swoosh in favor of OFF WHITE branding that reads ” Off-White TM for NIKE “AIR JORDAN 1″ Beverton, Oregon USA c. 1985”. Although that may be the case, if you take a closer look, you will notice that the perforation/stitch holes of the Swoosh are still intact. The lateral side of the shoe does have a Swoosh on it, but it appears to only be connected to the shoe by the visible Blue stitching noted on both ends of the Swoosh. When it comes to construction, it appears as if leather, suede and mesh are all in play. The shoe will also come with a total of four different lace options, a frayed White tongue and various words in double quotation marks (including AIR on the midsole and SHOELACES on the laces).
An international release took place on May 30th, followed by an official stateside release on June 19th. The retail price tag is set at $190 USD.
