The Jordan 1 Off-White Chicago is single-handedly responsible for changing the way sneaker collaborations are done. In the past, a sneaker collaboration meant adding new colorways, different materials, and specialized branding to a pre-existing design. Virgil Abloh tore down these expectations with The Ten capsule collection and more specifically the Air Jordan 1.
Prior to 2014, the Air Jordan 1 was strictly known as a legacy shoe. Any colorway that wasn’t OG was ignored and sat on shelves. Once Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment was given the opportunity to design his own Jordan 1, the climate quickly changed. This release ended up being extremely limited and sent shockwaves throughout the after-market. For the first time, a non-OG colorway was on top and the power of exclusivity was exposed.
The story behind these sneakers is what transforms this from a product into a monument. Opening its doors in 1997, Colette became Paris’ first concept store and quickly became known for pushing the cultural needle, building a foundation rooted in change. After 20 years of breaking fashion’s newest talents and inspiring the next generation, Colette closed its doors in 2017. To celebrate Colette’s cultural impact, Jordan Brand gifted the store it’s own Air Jordan 1.
Dior x Jordan 1 High
Luxury meets streetwear in one of the most premium Air Jordan 1s ever to release. Arriving to celebrate the silhouettes 35th anniversary, this rare and seriously expensive sneaker got revealed during the Dior Men’s pre-fall 2020 show in Miami. The internet was quick to react not least due to the £1800 price tag which also makes it one of the most expensive Jordan 1 Highs. The detailing might justify the cost though as these are hand-made in Italy complete with fine calf-leather uppers.
Off-White x Jordan 1 High “White”
Not quite as hyped as its predecessor but this all-white rendition from Virgil Abloh still stands apart for its unconventional styling. The clean colourway seems to put even more focus on those deconstructed panels. A UNC-inspired colourway would soon follow but we think this was the best from the 2020 Off-White x Nike line-up.
Solefly x Jordan 1 High
Several Jordans were designed at the hands of Miami based sneaker store, Sole Fly. It seems each one was more limited than the last. Although it’s not easy picking a favourite, many consider the best to be a patent covered green and black rendition that released in 2018 as part of a wider “Art Basel” Pack.
Jordan 1 High Strap “A Tribe Called Quest”
Midnight Marauders, the third album from A Tribe Called Quest provides the inspiration for this cosmic coloured release. Not only is the conventional use of leather switched out in favour of soft fabric but a chunky strap gets hit with that same red and green detailing. Only 25 pairs released in 2009 making them priceless amongst collectors.
Just Don x Jordan 1 High
Don C, Kanye West’s former manager and owner of boutique store RSVP, unveiled this snakeskin-crafted Jumpman as a celebration of Black History Month in 2013. Don’t feel bad if you missed it, only 37 pairs got made in a construction so premium it makes sense that these were auctioned off to the highest bidder. All proceeds went to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Of America charity.
Levi’s x Jordan 1 High “23/501”
Most of today’s sneakerheads will only remember the Levi’s x Jordan 4 collaboration but long before this came something even more limited. The first ever collaboration from Nike and the denim brand came back in 2008. Only 2,323 pairs were produced, each one sold with an accompanying pair of co-branded jeans and t-shirt. With the shoe somehow working in Nike’s iconic elephant print, it’s not surprising these are considered by many as the ultimate grail.
