Back in 2018, Union Los Angeles and Jordan Brand teamed up to release arguably one of the better collaborations with two colorways of the Air Jordan 1. 5 years later, the L.A.-based boutique will be returning to Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe for another upcoming collaboration during Summer 2023.
The first Union x Air Jordan 1 releases took inspiration from thrifting and DIY culture to create a new take on the iconic silhouette that started it all giving them a vintage aesthetic. For the 2023 release, the Los Angeles retailers looks to take some inspiration from the the Air Footscape Woven – a lifestyle running shoe known for its asymmetrical lacing system that debuted in the late 2000s.
Dressed in a Sail, Wolf Grey, Muslin, Pale Vanilla, Kinetic Green, and University Gold color scheme. This offering of the Union x Air Jordan 1 High OG comes in an OG-styled “Neutral Grey” makeup constructed in a full leather build with woven detailing wrapping around the entire shoe. Other details includes Wolf Grey detailing on the Swooshes, collars, “Nike Air” tongue tags, and Wings. Union’s “UN/LA” signature tag on the lateral with exposed Green stitching and “BBS” embroidered on the heels nodding Union founder Chris Gibbs’ wife Beth and her Bephie’s Beauty Supply brand. A two-tone aged rubber sole completes the design. The shoe will also come with extra set of laces and housed in special packaging.
