Last week images of The Jordan 9 LA All-Star Shoes surfaced and now photos of the "Guava Ice" colorway have also appeared. Unlike the "Off Noir" colorway, the "Guava Ice" is still more summery.The Union first opened its doors in New York City in 1989. Not much later, the doors of the Los Angeles store were opened. The Los Angeles store is currently the only store open.With this colorway there is a chosen base that is made of nubuck in a "Light Bone" color. This is complemented by translucent wings and off-white nets. Under the translucent wings is a bright pink color that gives the sneaker even more life. The sockliner is processed in a blue color. The upper is increased by the thick yellowed sole that gives the sneaker a vintage look.The vintage box of the time, the shape, the hangtag, a production made in Vietnam ... In short, the team behind the remastered version has done a great job to reconstruct the sneaker designed by Tinker Hatfield.
2020 is definitely a year full of events! If we would have gladly done without Jordan 1 High Premium Blue Void, starting with the COVID-19 epidemic which unfortunately seems to be regaining ground, others have turned out to be much more positive, at least if we refer to our sector. favorite: sneakers. This is the case with the "Move To Zero" program that Nike developed a few months ago in order to completely reduce its carbon emissions within 5 years. More than a program, this is a real revolution that has started to impact the historical manufacturing processes of the equipment manufacturer. Thus was born the “Space Hippie” collection, a series of sneakers designed mostly or almost from recycled materials, like the Converse All Star “Crater”. After Chuck Taylor's legendary shoe, it's now the Air Jordan 1's turn to take on an ecological dimension and an equally futuristic style. Without transition, room for presentations of what looks like the future of sneakers.The 30th anniversary edition is no exception to the game of comparison.Purists don't care about promises.They did not hesitate to point out slight differences that are almost invisible to ordinary people: the narrower bubble, the shade of blue, the style of mesh… These seasoned sneakerheads nevertheless salute the quality of the work accomplished.One last thing.
However, it is. 35 years after its introduction on the floors of the NBA, the Mens Air Jordan 1 manages to surprise us again, this time thanks as much to its durable construction as to its design that is both vintage and futuristic. True to the original silhouette imagined by Peter Moore in the 1980s, the AJ1 ‘’ Space Hippie ’has a high cut on which the leather has disappeared in favor of a black and gray recycled canvas finish. You will also have noticed the presence of red stitching on the back of the foot as well as the unstructured look of the neckline and the tongue of the laces which should appeal to fans of Virgil Abloh. To conclude, it should be noted that the design of this new Jordan 1 is enhanced with an outsole that stands out as a perfect reminder of the colors of the upper.The pair is also equipped with the Nike Air Zoom cushioning system that the creative teams of the brand at the Swoosh and the Jordan Brand have inserted into a midsole, also made from recycling.
