Earlier this year, renowned artist Dave White collaborated with Jordan Brand to create a limited edition Air Jordan 1, plastered in all-American visuals and detailing in White’s signature styling. Created for the Jordan Brand WINGS For The Future program, the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 was the perfect embodiment of the American dream, exuding notes of patriotism, hope, and the revolutionary spirit that is the driving force of both American culture and the Air Jordan legacy. This Fall 2011 season, Dave White teams up with Jordan Brand once again; this time around, White focuses on the heritage of the Air Jordan Legacy, combining iconic detailing like elephant print and the classic red/black/white colorway with his signature brush strokes. These also feature a ‘WINGS For The Future’ label on the shoe laces and insoles, which may or may not signify another auction-style release, but let’s hope this time a limited release to the public occurs as well.

As part of the WINGS program, Jordan Brand employees will conduct weekly workshops and participate in activities involving graphic designs, essay writing, and career planning while providing a complete refurbishment of the school basketball court and classrooms. To commemorate this honorable partnership, Jordan Brand has collaborated with well-known artist and sneakerhead Dave White of the UK, who is best recognized for his amazing canvas paintings of classic sneakers. This time around, he gets to work with the original Air Jordan shoe that is the foundation of Jordan Brand – the Air Jordan 1.

The Dave White x Air Jordan 1 Retro features White’s sublime graphic touch on the upper, using red brush strokes and copious floods of metallic gold in White’s personal style of layers and splatters. Premium canvas, call-out to White’s ‘canvas’ of choice’ can be found on the tongue tag, with a pristine lasered inner lining. Environmentally Preferred Mesh is also utilized on interior walls of the shoe. White furthers his reach beyond the shoe with a special Air Jordan ‘Wings’ logo on the box painted in his trademark motif as well.  The Air Jordan 1 is a perfect way to launch the Jordan Brand WINGS for the Future, and no other than Dave White can exemplify the creativity and artistic talent that the WINGS for the Future program aims to promote.  Continue reading for a detailed look at the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 Retro and let us know what you think.
