'Bison' and Carnivore Collide on the SoleFly x Air Jordan 1 Low
Miami's SoleFly are no strangers to Jordan Brand collaborations, and their latest is a real humdinger: an Air Jordan 1 Low that draws from Nike SB's Dunk Low 'Bison' and the Air Carnivore, a 1993 Nike cult classic.
First teased by none other than Travis Scott, the shoe's most vivid accents appear on its forefoot. 'Bison' and Carnivore details battle for prominence thanks to a red suede toe box and a patterned mudguard, both of which were seen in Scott's original teaser post. What wasn't shown in La Flame's reveal, however, was the midfoot and heel.
Made of black suede and equipped with black pony hair Swooshes, the midfoot is all 'Bison'. Further back, the heel returns to Carnivore inspiration with a jagged tan pattern of its own and tan Air Jordan ball-and-wings branding. 'Bison'-style black midsoles and gum outsoles wrap up the look.
Nike and Jordan Brand have a penchant for mashing models together to create new ones – think hybrid Air Maxes like the Air VaporMax Plus or even Jordan Brand sneakers like the Spiz'ike – but what sets this SoleFly x Air Jordan 1 Low apart from other melded models is the sheer specificity of the shoes it was inspired by: neither the 'Bison' nor the Carnivore are at the forefront of Nike's current lifestyle push.
A release date for this low-cut Air Jordan 1 has yet to be revealed, but we'll be sure to key you in with more info as soon as we have it.
