What would happen if BAPE collaborated with Jordan Brand atop the iconic Air Jordan 1? The Japanese streetwear staple did hook up with Mike’s son Marcus and Trophy Room for a limited apparel collaboration not too far back, so it’s only right that we start fantasizing what could be. Customizer Jack The Ripper is already a step ahead of us, as he’s imagined the BAPE x Air Jordan 1 “Royal” featuring premium touches of calf leather on the lining, a canvas printed ape camouflage in the recently released retro Royal look, and a star graphic instead of the Nike Swoosh on the side panel. JTR was selling pairs starting at $1,200 USD with the base shoe provided which would probably be what this collaborative pair would fetch in the reselling market if it ever happened. Check out more detailed shots below and let us know what you think of this custom BAPE x Air Jordan 1 “Royal”.
