UPDATE 13 JANUARY 2020:
The release of AIR DIOR in low version has been announced. A total of 4,500 pieces will be available for purchase from next April in Dior boutiques around the world.
The haute couture brand Dior, after the announcement of the collaboration with the streetwear brand Stüssy, comes back to surprise us with a new collaboration. It is nothing less than a partnership with Nike. During the fashion show held yesterday in Miami, art director Kim Jones unveiled the first silhouette in the collection, the Air Jordan I High OG Dior.
To mark the 35th anniversary of Air Jordan and the first debut of the Dior men’s collection in the United States, this limited edition Air Jordan 1 High OG underlines both the timeless charm of the sneaker and the unmistakable touch of the luxury brand.
With this collaboration, once again the world of haute couture and sport come together to create a new look. The result is a perfect balance in which the charm of the iconic Jordan I is combined with Parisian elegance.
The collaboration offers a new image that combines sporty style with streetwear until it becomes a luxury product. It also pays tribute to the unmistakable iconography that distinguishes the two brands. The shoe will be made in Italy according to the standards of excellence and will be produced with a fine material or calfskin leather that characterizes the leather goods of the House.
A remix of the iconic Jumpman Wings logo is imprinted on the upper with the words “AIR DIOR“. The Swoosh is made from Dior Oblique jacquard, a unique motif that simultaneously represents both of the leading brands in their sector. The same weave is resized and laser engraved on the insoles of the shoe.
The limited-edition Air Jordan I High OG Dior will be available from April 2020 in selected Dior boutiques.
