The Shoe Surgeon Lights Up a Trio of Air Jordan 1 Lows for 4/20
The global ganja celebration known as 4/20 has grown to become quite a festive period for the sneaker community, including customisers. Regarded as one of the best, The Shoe Surgeon has used the occasion to light up three Air Jordan 1 Lows, all blessed with innovative materials and unique stories.
First up, we have the Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Rasta’, inspired by the rasta colours. Made up of textural materials from suede, hemp, and multi-coloured embroidered Swooshes, the colourway is completed with matching neutral cream rope laces and sail gum soles. Complementing the ‘Rasta’ is the ‘Light One’, which is inspired by the literal action of lighting up a blunt. Constructed with heat-changing leather, the upper’s olive tone turns into yellow when heat is applied, while a crinkled texture is used to mimic wrappers used in packaging.
To complete the trio, we have the Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Roll One’, which comes through with a very in vogue tear-away exterior. This specific design makes use of a plant-based/vegan-friendly upper made from hemp. Of course, the top layer can be torn away to reveal the tobacco-leaf-style pattern on the material underneath.
No release information regarding these 4/20 Jays has been revealed, suggesting they’re all one-off creations for the unofficial holiday. Nevertheless, be sure to check out the Dopest Weed-Themed Sneakers for more ganja goodness.
