Editor’s Notes: Nike officially announced the release of the Air Jordan 1 Zoom High “Racer Blue,” following initial teasers late last year. Its clean grey and white colorway, which features hits of blue, closely resembles the highly-limited, $2,000 Dior x Nike Air Jordan that is set to drop in April. This has led to some people calling it the “Budget Air Dior.”
If you were thinking of picking up the Dior x Nike Air Jordan 1 later this year — and let’s face it you’ll probably take an L (we all will) — this might be a more wallet-friendly alternative.
