Aside from hitting the casino, Michael Jordan was often spotted on the golf course when he was off the basketball court. Even well past his NBA playing days, the billionaire mogul still makes the leisurely sport a focus for not only him, but more recently for his Jordan Brand line under Nike. With this, a slew of models under the JB umbrella have been retrofitted to be ready for a round of 18 holes and have even been given collaborative treatments with the golf apparel brand Eastside Golf. Their mission, bringing the game of golf to the youth and those that you wouldn’t expect to see teeing off.
While Eastside Golf and Jordan Brand already have collaborated on the AJ 4 in the past, this year we’ve seen the two link up on the AJ 12 High, a golf-ready AJ 12 Low, and the AJ 1 Low. Now, expanding its offerings, the Air Jordan 1 High Golf has been given the Eastside Golf treatment.
Seen here in the “Eastside Gold” colorway, an all-leather upper takes over with the brand's favorite shade of orange, burnt sunrise, appearing on the mudguard, eyestays, and heel overlays. Accenting this, stark white shades land on the leather toebox, quarter panel, and collar with the mesh tongue joining in on the colorless option. Navy shades make their mark on the flat lace set and sockliner, both of which are located nearby the split-branded Jordan Golf and Eastside Golf logos on the orange tongue tags. On the reverse of each tag sits the opposite logo, making sure each shoe gets both brands featured. Further branding details, like the Jordan Wings logo in white and Nike Swoosh in navy, remain in their typical fashion while the insole forgoes its usual Nike Air branding in favor of “Eastside Golf” text. Underfoot, the AJ 1 midsole comes in white while the golf-ready semi-translucent rubber outsole comes in a vibrant orange hue.
The Eastside Golf x Air Jordan 1 High Golf NRG is set to release on November 18th, 2022 through Nike SNKRS and select retailers online and in-store. Eastside Golf will release the pair on November 7th, 2022. Releasing in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $200.
