Air Jordan 1 To Release ‘Fearless Ones’ Collection In Time For The HolidaysBy Rachel Tooley | October 20, 2019
With the festive season looming, Christmas has come early for Air Jordan fans, as Nike have unveiled their upcoming release of Air Jordan 1 collaborations, which are due to launch throughout late October, November and December.
As part of their ‘Fearless Ones’ collection, Air Jordan 1 have teamed up with various brands to reinvent the classic sneakerhead must have. The line-up features all Air Jordan 1 silhouettes, including the AJ1 Low, AJ1 Mid, AJ1 High and the AJ1 FlyEase, which are being redesigned by labels such as Ghetto Gastro, Blue The Great, FACETASM, Maison Chateau, Melody Ehsani and CLOT.
One of the earliest collaborations to release from the series, is the first ever Air Jordan 1 High FlyEase, which features specialised ‘FlyEase’ technology, allowing athletes to take the shoe off/on quickly and easily, whilst offering a comfortable, secure fit.
There are some unusual takes on the AJ1 silhouette from ‘Fearless Ones’ collaborators, suiting the more adventurous AJ1 enthusiast. Los Angeles based designer, Melody Ehsani has developed a design with pink and orange leather panels on the upper, and a gold watch face which threads onto the bottom of the laces.
The silhouette also features a handwritten message on the midsole which quotes “If you knew what you had was rare, you’d never waste it”.
An iteration from Blue The Great features a primary colour mixture of suede and corduroy which sit on the upper of the shoe. Designs from Japanese brand FACETASM go back to its heritage using its signature crinkled leather in a teal blue hue.
Other sneakers which feature in the line-up include Ghetto Gastro x Air Jordan 1 React, Maison Chateau x Air Jordan 1 Mid, CLOT x Air Jordan 1 Mid, Air Jordan 1 High OG and Air Jordan Retro High ‘Bloodline’.
