This holiday season, Jordan Brand celebrates the power and impact of the Air Jordan 1 franchise with new interpretations and collaborations in the Fearless Ones collection, along with fresh articulations of contemporary classic color schemes. Each pair serves to extend the defining spirit of the pioneering silhouette.
Designed in collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Blue The Great, this Air Jordan 1 leans on his love for primary colours on a suede and corduroy upper with his BTG artist signature featured on the heel. BTG started his art career in high school by hand-painting sneakers for friends and has used the Air Jordan 1 as a canvas in the past, but never like this.
As often seen in his work, each primary colour plays off the one next to it to accentuate its individual impact. His red, black and white-coloured suede overlays in this special-edition Air Jordan 1 are a familiar colour-blocking scheme to any Air Jordan 1 fan, but that combination sets the rest of the sneaker up for tasteful experimentation with royal blue, golden yellow and green suede overlays that are worthy of a double-take in the streets. There may be six distinct colours in this Air Jordan 1, but they all come together for one cohesive design thanks to perfect placement.
Look out for Blue The Great x Air Jordan 1 Mid “Fearless” to release on Saturday, 09 November 2019 via SNKRS (at 1:00pm), for the retail price of R 2,099.95.
