First Look: BMX Rider Nigel Sylvester's Air Jordan 1
Jordan Brand and world-renowned BMX rider Nigel Sylvester have unveiled what they have been cooking up recently. While the duo collaborated on a pair of Nike SB Dunks back in 2014, their latest brainchild is a pair of Air Jordan 1s.
Designed to look worn and be worn, the model is stained with a sepia-esque sail tone and distressed markings along the toe and heel. The traditional leather Swoosh appears to have been stripped away, leaving only stitch holes and an unstained white outline to distinguish the iconic logo. An embroidered mini Swoosh on the forefoot, red bottoms, and a black tongue and laces round out the look.
Pairs are said to be releasing August 22 at Jordan Brand retailers and Nike Online!
