Back in April, Zion Williamson introduced Jordan Brand to the world of Naruto, using the series as inspiration for not only apparel but also a couple Zion 1s. And the two's nods to the iconic anime manga don't stop here, as a Jonin-inspired Air 200SE SP will also be dropping on May 18th. The instinct to change her message based on different audiences would be an easy impulse. Some highlights include reflective silver underlays, a burnished leather Wings logo, two-toned dyed laces, and exposed stitching throughout the genuine nubuck leather upper. The shoe has two Zoom Air pods in the forefoot and a supportive TPU plate running through the midsole. As previously stated, Nike Air is what Custom Air Jordan 1 takes the throne, giving this upcoming iteration a quality more like that of the original from 1988. That's OG everything - leather upper, mudguard, carbon fiber Air Jordan 1 Zoom shank plate, everything. Though said to be inspired by the Air Jordan 11 Concord, the upcoming release essentially blends Grape with the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, the latter of which clearly inspires the pair's color blocking. Across many of the overlays, the same shade of grey takes the helm, layering over a backdrop dressed equally subdued. The shoe has two Zoom Air pods in the forefoot and a supportive TPU plate running through the midsole. Both technical elements are housed within a plush foam and Air Jordan 11 help create a new underfoot experience and sensation. The silhouette, stance, material choices and detailing celebrate Nike's irreverent approach to performance design, with an eye to progressive solutions for all athletes.
