There hasn’t been any doubt that the Nike Flyknit is perhaps the label’s lightest running shoe mixing breathability with flexibility and durability.
The Air Jordan 1 is seen as the most iconic Jumpman with the sneaker still among the favourite of many sneakerheads and basketball players. A particular favourite colourway was the infamous “Banned” shoe. It’s timeless.
And now, the Flyknit and Jordan have come together for a collaboration that will have all sneaker fanatics salivating.
The NBA initially banned him from wearing the particular colourway because they broke the league’s dress code. But between Michael’s aerial showmanship and his refusal to stop wearing them, the 1 launched ‘His Airness’ into both the sneaker and basketball stratosphere.
The Jordan 1 has become a cultural staple, transcending the hardwood and becoming a popular street shoe with famed sneaker collectors such as DJ Clark Kent and Mayor rocking the silhouette.
The Flyknit 1, paying tribute to MJ’s first colorway that got banned, releases on September 9.
