Closer Look: The Union x Air Jordan 1 is a Special Vintage
Union LA got their troll on with the teasers for their upcoming Air Jordan 1, but there’s certainly nothing shifty about these fresh pics from Hypebeast. In the best look of the collaboration we’ve seen so far, the pictorial smorgasbord gives us an up-close with the sneaker’s unique vintage-inspired details.
Inspired by special vintage pieces from the Nike Sportswear range, this Air Jordan 1 features a mixed-and-matched build for a DIY-style aesthetic. The stitching is exposed and soles are slightly discoloured for well-worn look, while the accompanying apparel makes use of washed fabrics and cracked screen-printed graphics and logos to match the vintage vibes.
This Union x Jordan Brand collaboration is scheduled to drop on November 17 at select Jordan Brand retailers and Union LA. Stay tuned for more release details!
