Jordan Brand launched its WINGS For The Future program in 2011 with Dave White, a world-renown artist recognized for his trademark works of art with classic Nike and Air Jordan shoes as the muse. Not only did White design a limited-edition pair of the Air Jordan 1, he played the role of ‘mentor’ by attending the program’s event at Inglewood High School. Later in 2011, Sneaker News broke the news of a release-version of the Air Jordan 1 Dave White; remember, the first version was limited to just 23 pairs, handed out the public via an online auction for the purpose of raising dollars for the WINGS program. This time around, the shoe will release to the masses – Jordan fans, philanthropic members of the community, Dave White aficionados – and is expected to quickly disappear from shelves once it hits stores on February 11th. However, Jordan Brand will also re-release a run of the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 on February 24th in conjunction with the 2012 NBA All-Star Game and the WINGS program. A graphic tee will also be available with the Air Jordan 1 DW release. Check out the detailed gallery below because these will be a highly sought-after issue, but if you want to ensure yourself a pair and are willing to pony up the cash, get a pair now on eBay.
