2018 was a banner year for Air Jordan 1 collaborations, and LA-based shop Union certainly deserves all the accolades they’ve been receiving thus far. From the way the shoes leaked at the a flea market to the full apparel capsule, Chris Gibbs certainly delivered a full-fledged homage to the late 1980s/early 1990s era of streetwear. The Air Jordan 1 was designed with one unifying concept – take a globally recognizable OG colorway with an obscure gem and stitch them together – literally. One takes on the famed “Black Toe” and White/Grey, and the second approaches the white/blue with the famed “Banned”.
The shoes will officially release on UnionJordan.com, a special microsite dedicated to this collaborative project, on a first come first serve basis. Additionally, the shop will be hosting a raffle on November 10th and November 11th at a special location in Los Angeles (location TBD). For now, check out these exclusively images of the UNION Jordan 1 Retro High OG in both colorways, and stay tuned for the official drop on November 17th.
