The latest addition to this lineage is the Multi-Color Air Jordan 1 Low, which draws inspiration from Sashiko’s ancient Japanese embroidery technique.
Sashiko, a time-honored Japanese craft, has been previously celebrated by Jordan Brand, notably in special editions of the Air Jordan 4s and the esteemed “World Make” collection. This new rendition of the Air Jordan 1 Low takes this homage further. Instead of strictly adhering to traditional Sashiko textiles and colors, this design disrupts convention. It blends smooth and tumbled leather uppers, replacing the intricate textile patterns with a sleek, modern finish. The shoe’s pastel color palette, both subdued and striking, breathes fresh life into this iconic silhouette, ensuring it stands out in any sneaker rotation.
The meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the shoe. Every stitch underscores Jordan Brand’s unwavering commitment to craftsmanship, from the iconic Wings logo on the heel to the Jumpman silhouette on the tongue. An added touch is the insole, adorned with a unique graphic teeming with Jordan symbols, serving as a nostalgic nod to the brand’s illustrious history.
