With DIY designs as popular as ever, it's no surprise to see it cross over from the streets onto the commercial landscape. Customs have been a staple in streetwear culture dating back to the early 80s. Today with the advancement in technology and artists honing their craft in ways we have never seen before, we see everything from unique 1-of-1 designs to others creating sneakers from the ground up.
For Jordan Brand, they need not look any further than their classic lineage. As a result, they have created one of the most unique Air Jordan 1 Retro’s to-date. Nicknamed the “Handcrafted” edition, this pair comes in a seasonal themed black, archaeo brown and dark chocolate colorway. Sporting a genuine nubuck leather upper with exposed stitching and 3M reflective underlays. The shoe is predominantly brown-based with green, black and purple accents. A leather collar, burnished Wings logo, two-toned dyed laces and custom packaging complete the do-it-yourself vibe.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Handcrafted” is set to release on December 18th, 2021. It will launch at Nike as well as select retailers in-store and online. They will be available in mens sizing, coming in at the usual $170 price tag.
