The Air Jordan 1 is as of now a symbol, an all around darling shoe with 35 years of history and a propensity to sell out with each resulting discharge. How would you top that? Simple: Just chat with Kim Jones.
The inventive chief of Dior Men is a performer of the high-low collab. He’s done it once as of now, at Louis Vuitton, tossing the French design house together with Supreme and in-spiring overnight lines—and galactic resale costs—the world over. In any case, that return in 2017, when everybody was high as damnation on in-your-face streetwear vibes. Presently, in a progressively quieted 2020, he’s accomplished the equivalent catalytic promotion by taking the AJ1, in addition to a lineup of Jordan Brand clothing and frill, in a pared-down course.
Basketball shorts fall into cotton twill from trial. On a sweater — Carolina blue, of course — appears an Air Dior emblem that wouldn’t stand a chance in the color. A satin flight jacket, a reference to MJ’s airtime heavy game, isn’t what you should be putting on after warm-ups. It is polished stuff, better than hardwood for the pregame tunnel.
And then there’s the sneakers: both high- and low-tops, made in Italy, dressed in Dior gray and finished with a swoosh jacquard. Sneakerheads giggle over them. There are fashion lovers. They cost more than ten times what you would pay for in-line Jordan 1s, and when they arrive — the original launch was planned for this month, but due to the ongoing global pandemic, the timeline has been postponed—they’re going to sell out similarly as quick (or quicker).
