After a first preview of the Air Jordan 1 High “Shadow” in a satin and corduroy construction last week, the full story behind the intriguing colorway now comes into focus. The shoe is actually a collaboration with Aleali May, a model and fashion consultant known for her love of sneakers. Aleali builds on the previous Air Jordan 1 Satin constructions for the coveted “Banned” and “Royal” versions, adding her own details to the original black and grey colorway. Instead of a full satin build, the shoe also features corduroy inspired by the house slippers that her father and uncle used to wear, and also adds chenille Swooshes to reference vintage sportswear jackets.
Available in both men’s and youth sizing, the Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 High will be available globally on October 28th at select Jordan Brand retailers.
