Jordan Brand’s collaboration with Chris Gibbs of Union LA officially dropped on November 17 in two colorways. The limited retail drop followed an extremely low-key secret release at the Rose Bowl flea market a few weeks ago, and having been whipped up in a flash, can now be copped via resellers at StockX.
Arriving in “Varsity Red” and “Storm Blue”, the two new leather AJ1s come highlighted by exposed stitching and dual laces, plus a Union LA tag on the side of each pair. Gibbs revealed that the pack references late ’80s and early ’90s vintage footwear while also celebrating DIY culture.
Having dropped to lucky sneakerheads passing by a questionable booth at the Rose Bowl flea market alongside a selection of collaborative washed out and distressed apparel, you had to be quick to cop the shoes at retail. Luckily, those with eyes on either of the two sneakers can still get hold of a pair at StockX, albeit for a much higher price tag.
