There’s a stretch of Curtis St. in Boston colloquially referred to as ’7ave’ or ‘Cats Alley’ where abandoned freight lines and isolated bridges make for an ideal place to practice your graffiti skills. It’s there that sneaker customizer Sab-One got his start and it’s this unique place that he commemorates with this new Air Jordan 1 Retro custom. Sab’s AJ1s reflect the look of tags that never got covered by anything but time, the rusty, faded look of these combining with the classic handstyles to capture an artform that’s seen radical shifts in recent years.

Click though to see more angles on these and if you can’t wait till the limited retail release, grab a pair early from Kicks-lab.
