UPDATE: Last week, Off-White head honcho Virgil Abloh took to the Met Gala’s red carpet with his upcoming Air Jordan 1 collaboration on foot, equipped with a less-than-OG pair of blinding neon green laces. Now, we have another look at the hotly-anticipated collaboration and it seems that not only will those laces come standard, but an additional three sets will come included as well. Along with traditional white and black lacing options, a fluoro orange pair is also present – matching the small patch equipped under the Swoosh.
There is still no confirmed release date for the Off-White x Air Jordan 1, but we’ll keep you up to date!
A few shoddily cropped and washed out images of an alleged Off-White x Air Jordan 1 colab have been doing the rounds for a while, but now we’ve finally got a decent look at the highly anticipated collaboration. These new pictures that come from WeChat show tooling and styling similar to what we’ve seen from Off-White in the past. The text branding has ‘AIR’ sitting under the heel on the midsole, with a description of the shoe printed across the medial side replacing the missing Swoosh.
The stitching has been accentuated just as Virgil Abloh did with the Air Force 1, but this Jay has been tinkered with even further – overlays have been pulled back, folded over and even doubled up in various places as a nod to the design process.
As these are leaked images, nothing about the release of this Off-White x Air Jordan 1 is official. Stay tuned and we’ll update you as soon as more info comes in.
