Dior & Jordan brand unveiled the long-awaited Air Jordan 1 High OG collab at the Dior pre-fall 2020 show in Miami. In this article, we cover official pictures, the release date as well as the price tag.
Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior
Three weeks ago rumors of an upcoming Air Jordan 1 collab with Dior were spreading everywhere. After weeks of waiting, Nike confirmed the collaboration. And now, we have official imagery of this upcoming grail.
Arriving just in time for AJ1’s 35th anniversary, the sneaker is the perfect match between Dior’s expertise in leather goods and Nike’s sportswear aesthetic. The result is a familiar AJ1 made with Dior’s luxury level of quality and detail.
In the details, the upper features one of Dior’s first shades called “Dior grey” introduced in 1947. This particular color used to represent the sky above Christian Dior’s childhood home.
Then come a number of co-branded details. First, the lateral heel features a remixed Jumpman “Wings” logo where Air Jordan is replaced by Air Dior. Second, the shoe also features a co-branded “Air Dior” tongue tag. Third, the AJ1 Swoosh is branded with Dior’s Oblique monogram.
Finally, the sneaker comes with a translucent icy sole and a Dior logo appears underneath. Subtle contrast stitching and a metallic chrome hangtag complete the pair. Take an official look at the long-awaited Dior x AJ1 High OG in the gallery just below!
