On-Foot With the Union x Air Jordan 1 ‘Woven’
News on this release was first published on April 24, 2023.
Update May 24, 2023: On-Foot shots of the Union x Air Jordan 1 ‘Woven’ have surfaced. A release has also been rumoured to occur in August this year. Stay locked for further updates.
Over the years, Union has become one of the most prolific Nike and Jordan Brand collaborators, so it makes sense that leaks of their co-branded ventures are perpetually circling the internet. Now, the latest news to seep out of the Beaverton stronghold is the duo’s reworked Air Jordan 1, and a fresh on-foot look is here for everyone to enjoy.
The word on the street is that this pair is a three-way collaboration between Nike, Union and Bephie's Beauty Supply, and while neither party has confirmed that this news is legit, constant leaks hint that it may be.
This build may look familiar to hardcore sneakerheads, despite this being a new version of the Air Jordan 1, and that’s because the trio took inspiration from the legendary Air Footscape Woven – a lifestyle model prominent in the early 2000s. The upper takes a full-white leather build, utilising canvas-like woven details throughout the entire shoe. Yellow and grey toned accents further accentuate the upper, alongside Union lateral tag branding and Bephie's Beauty Supply heel embroidery.
If history has taught us anything, leaks aren’t the confirmation of a silhouette, but this could possibly be Union’s latest Air Jordan 1. A release date has been rumoured for August this year, stay locked to Sneaker Freaker for confirmation.
