Taking to Instagram yesterday, Austin Scotti of KITH fame posted a self-designed Nike Air Jordan 1, created in collaboration with The Shoe Surgeon.

The custom pair is an all Sail colorway, with a tumbled leather upper and the Air Jordan 1’s first ever Jewel Swoosh. There is also a mini Swoosh embroidered on the toe.

Scotti explained the reasoning behind his monochromatic design choice: “I wanted the design to speak for itself… and I wanted to wear them all the damn time.”

The Shoe Surgeon has reworked a lot of Nike sneakers in the past, so it’s no wonder Scotti teamed up with him for this special project.

Hopefully Nike sees the beauty in this minimalistic pair and collaborates with Scotti, or even KITH as a whole, for a wider release.
