Model: Air Jordan 1 Mid Fearless “Blue the Great”
Key Features: The Air Jordan 1 Mid has been given a patchwork makeover in this collab with Los Angeles-based artist, Blue the Great. The shoe now boasts contrasting suede and corduroy uppers, and BTG’s artist signature has been placed prominently on the heel. The classic Air Jordan signifier can be found embossed on the ankle and the Jumpman logo features on the tongue.
Release Date: November 11
Editor’s Notes: Nike has tapped LA artist Blue the Great for its latest iteration of the Air Jordan 1 Mid. The artist made his start in high school by hand-painting his friends’ kicks, treating shoes as another canvas-like medium, which adds a sweet layer of context to the collab.
BTG’s signature style is often bold and colorful, with bright colors utilized to deliver individual impact. That aesthetic has been transferred via six color-blocked textured panels on the new AJ 1 sneaker, upping the impact of this special edition silhouette.
