The ever-growing crossover of luxury and sportswear is inching closer to its apex this month as Nike officially reveals a first look at the hotly anticipated DIOR x Air Jordan 1. The Italian-made shoes feature a white and grey upper with ‘Air Dior’ punched into the iconic Wings logo, while an all-over print in high-quality jacquard acts as the Swoosh logo of the silhouette. A translucent icy sole with a graphic beneath, subtle contrast stitching, and metallic chrome hangtags accompanying the rumored $2,000 sneaker, while nine eyelets confirm that the canvas in question is indeed that of a High. The choice of light grey is a nod to the French atelier’s history as the hue was a mainstay of the brand since its founding in 1947.
It’s no surprise that the shoe emerged today, given Dior’s first-ever US debut of a men’s seasonal line was scheduled ahead of Art Basel shenanigans in Miami. Nike confirms that the shoes will release in April 2020 at select Dior stores; an MSRP has not been revealed. See the official images below. Continue reading “Dior Reveals Their Air Jordan 1”

In some ways, you can think of no bad days as the next step of no days off. If No Days Off was about pushing through the natural impulses to stand still in favor of making every day a productive one, No Bad Days is about pushing through the natural impulse to allow instinctual, physical reactions to dictate your state of being, and ending every day with a positive mindset.
Like the No Days Off variant, the No Bad Days 997S is fully intended for daily use, so the basic structure of the shoe, mesh uppers, leather and suede overlays, neoprene bootie, dual ABZORB and ENCAP cushioning and laminate heel counter remain the same. The transition to a mentally focused approach is marked by an inversion of placement. On the No Days Off model, The distressed suede, was featured prominently on the lateral overlay panel and wavy, 660 inspired mudguard.
These high visibility areas outwardly projected the physical results of the no days off ethos. On the No Bad Days 997S, the lateral overlay panel and mudguard are rendered in leather, with the distressed suede relocating to the medial overlay. This inversion is repeated with the dimple embossed neoprene, which also relocates to the lateral of the No Bad Days. This rearrangement keeps the results of your daily efforts evident, if you know where to look, but presents a fresh, undeterred face as a first impression.
