After UNION‘s Chris Gibbs honored the Air Jordan 1 with his two fused colorways, sneaker culture quickly ran with the idea, combining many an OG however they saw fit. Custom makers dressed Highs and Lows alike with a bevy of different inspirations, and as the treatment became more and more popular within the social media space, Jordan Brand couldn’t help but get inspired themselves. Born from the pure template of the aforementioned, the forthcoming “Light Smoke Grey” offering effectively mimics the collaborative style sans the pronounced DIY mending. At the ankle — where one scheme meets the other — there is only distinct color blocking: a line that visually divides the top half’s “Bred” inspirations and the bottom’s neutral grey shading. Wings insignia and patch branding are as ordinary much like that of the core construction whose suede and smooth leather panels are without any vintage finish or subtle distressing. Grab a detailed look at the pair here and expect a release to land on July 11th of this year.
