BMX pro Nigel Sylvester and Jordan Brand have teamed up to officially release an upcoming Air Jordan 1 collaboration set to release early September.
the Nigel Sylvester x Jordan 1 Sail perfectly embodies everything that makes the sneaker so legendary. Unique yet understated compared to other Jordan 1 colourways, this shoe takes some of Jordan Brand’s classic features and combines them with a clean and contemporary design.
The first ever AJ1 collab made specifically for a professional BMX rider, the Nigel Sylvester x Jordan 1 Sail features a distressed aesthetic inspired by the way the BMX rider’s shoes look after he has ridden in them. A yellow treatment is applied to the white leather upper to provide them with a broken-in aesthetic, and the the lateral Swooshes are deconstructed to look like they’ve been ripped off with the bright white leather showing underneath.
Look for the Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG to release on September 1st at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $180 USD.
