The greatest cop of 2020 was so haute, it went back and forth while never hitting store floors.
After the Air Jordan 1 OG Dior shoes appeared during Dior’s pre-fall 2020 show in Miami in December, sneakerheads and industry insiders the same went into a fashion fit about the first-ever streetwear-meets-extravagance mashup from the celebrated couture house and Air Jordan.
The coordinated effort commends the 35th commemoration of the arrival of the Air Jordan 1. The makings of that notorious pair are all there on the enhanced one — a ’80s-propelled high-top outline, the Jumpman Wings logo, that mark swoosh — while the hand-painted shade of Dior dark is a gesture to the French name’s mark tint (and a most loved of the establishing couturier, Christian Dior).
Initially planned to drop in the spring, the coronavirus pandemic caused a postponed discharge.
On June 25, the general population had the option to enlist to shop the drop. As indicated by a report from WWD, 5 million individuals joined regardless of the creation of just a few thousand tennis shoes.
With a retail sticker price of $2,200 (the low-top adaptation retails for $2,000), the restricted version high top is currently exchanging on locales like StockX for over $14,000.
Handling a genuine pair is mission unthinkable, yet a recently discharged video — which takes advantage of Dior Creative Director Kim Jones’ profound established love of the Air Jordan — offers swoon-commendable close-ups of the current year’s most pined for tennis shoe.
