The OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 comes dressed in a classic Chicago color scheme, but that’s where the traditional aspect of the shoe ends. There’s plenty of things that make the shoe stand out from your regular-constructed Air Jordan 1 High. Think of it as a deconstructed version of the model. For starters, the medial side gets rid of the Swoosh in favor of OFF WHITE branding that reads ” Off-White TM for NIKE “AIR JORDAN 1″ Beverton, Oregon USA c. 1985”. Although that may be the case, if you take a closer look, you will notice that the perforation/stitch holes of the Swoosh are still intact. The lateral side of the shoe does have a Swoosh on it, but it appears to only be connected to the shoe by the visible Blue stitching noted on both ends of the Swoosh. When it comes to construction, it appears as if leather, suede and mesh are all in play. The shoe will also come with a total of four different lace options, a frayed White tongue and various words in double quotation marks (including AIR on the midsole and SHOELACES on the laces).
When it comes to the packaging, it’s done in OFF-WHITE fashion. The packaging comes with an inside-out theme. The usual outer portion of the box is placed on the inside, while the inside is now found on the outside. The inside consists of a Black base with a Gold Jumpman, while the inside consists of a Brown surface with “JUMPMAN” branding on it. The packaging will also include dual branded (Off-White & Nike) wrapping paper.
