Release Date: October 27

While announcing the newest member of the Jordan brand fam, the WNBA's Dallas Wings forward Isabelle Harrison, the brand also softly debuted first looks at its upcoming Air Jordan 1 "Starfish" sneakers.
The women's Air Jordan 1 "Starfish" colorway is reportedly inspired by the iconic Hermès Birkin bag — the wildly expensive handbag that'll leave you waitlisted for months to years. And in rare cases like Julia Fox's, you may even find it quite stressful when you finally get your hands on one.
The Starfish 1s — better yet, the Birkin 1s — indeed supplies big Birkin energy, boasting a smooth leather upper that nods to the renowned Hermès bag's thousand-dollar skin. Lucky for you, the Birkin AJ1s will only cost you $180 for retail.
Then, of course, there's the AJ1's noteworthy burnt orange shade, which instantly reminds you of the Birkin's rich Poppy color option.
In addition to the Hermès Birkin bag, the women's Air Jordan 1 "Starfish" colorway piggybacks off of the Air Jordan 1 Low "Starfish" and Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard," expanding on the shoes' recurring orange, white, and black theme through White, Sail, and Cacao Wow.
The Birkin 1s won't be as hard as copping the famed Hermès handbag, but we can't guarantee a release experience free of stress, waiting rooms, or Ls. But, look at the bright side; at least you won't be dropping $175,000 for retail or resale (hopefully).
