Although 2022’s Jordan Brand Classic event has come and gone, the high school all-star basketball game has left the sneaker world with something to talk about given that participants have taken to social media to showcase their player-exclusive Air Jordan 1 Low OG.

Unlike past years’ exclusive Air Jordan retros, the newly-surfaced pair abandons any Chicago Bulls-friendly color palette in favor of arguably one of the signature sneaker series’ most experimental takes yet. While not a Swarovski collaboration, the low-top iteration of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe indulges in a shimmering take made possible by the dozens of glitter-like details placed atop the iridescent panels found throughout the upper. Toe boxes and profile swooshes deviate from the eye-catching arrangement in understated black tones, just as the Nike Dunk-reminiscent tread underfoot. “NIKE AIR”-branding takes over the tongue’s label, while an event-specific “Jordan Brand Classic” logo is stamped onto both left and right shoes’ sock-liners to mark the April 15th basketball game.

The low-top retro isn’t hitting Nike SNKRS, but it’s possible Team Jumpman releases a pair in a similar style at some point. In the meantime, enjoy images of the P.E. Jordan 1-variant ahead, courtesy of Instagram users @zSneakerHeadz and JBC 2022 participant @diorr.
