Model: Air Jordan 1 Lux “Menta”
Key Features: The sneaker is constructed using Paloma gray matte python, light gray suede, and white Japanese plonge leather. A green, blue, and red gradient Swoosh recalls Virgil Abloh's “Menta” OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Max 97, with deconstructed and text elements pulled from "The Ten."
Release Date: January 12
Editor’s Notes: Following last week’s Travis Scott-themed “Cactus Jack” Air Jordan 4 custom, Dominic Ciambrone aka The Shoe Surgeon has unveiled his latest project: a “Menta” Nike Air Jordan 1 Lux.
Directly inspired by the “Menta” OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Max 97, the luxurious custom Air Jordan 1 features python skin (a staple on many of Ciambrone’s creations), as well as high-quality suede, calf leather, and Japanese plonge leather.
The custom pair will be available for $3,500 online at theshoesurgeon.com on January 12 at 8 a.m. PST.
If you’re looking to splash the cash, but want to see what the sneakers look like on foot, Ciambrone has you covered. The master customizer was seen wearing the pair courtside at the recent LA Lakers vs. New York Knicks game.
Who did the “Menta” colorway better, Abloh or Ciambrone? Let us know in the comments below.
