Jordan Casts Another Voodoo Spell With This Alternate Air Jordan 1 For Zion Williamson

But will we see a retail release?

Just over a year ago, Jordan Brand crafted a special Air Jordan 1 Low OG release inspired by Zion Williamson’s roots in the Bayou. Now, the team at the Jumpman casts an alternate spell, reviving this past release with new colors.

Featuring the same materials, details, and design touches inspired by voodoo dolls, Jordan Brand delivers this spooky take on this modern classic with purples, greys, and other swampy shades that reflect the culture of New Orleans. A bright, light volt green dawns on the logo hits on the upside-down Nike Air tongue logo as well as the gigantic Wings at the heel, while threads of hemp make up the thick roped laces as well as the delicate stitching that attaches each body part of the sneaker. Pony hair appears on the toe-boxes (not Zion’s actual hair), while images of skulls provide an even creepier, macabre outlook.

It’s not clear whether or not these will hit retail, but given that they were shared by Jordan color designer Kelsey Amy, who is typically tasked with creating one-offs for athletes, a retail drop doesn’t seem likely. Hopefully we’re wrong on that guesstimate, but for now, enjoy the images ahead.
