Jordan 1 Retro High Union Los Angeles Black Toe
LA based streetwear staple Union has official unveiled their upcoming project with Jordan Brand – a full cozy capsule inspired by vintage wear of the turn of the 80s. While the silhouette of the shoes is that of an Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, shop founder Chris Gibbs referenced several of the model’s original colorways, using a very obvious stitch pattern to create a mash-up like we’ve never seen before.
Two different colorway styles represent the Union x Air Jordan 1; one takes on the classic “Black Toe” with the ankle collar of the mythical white/grey, while another makes use of the equally elusive white/blue with the iconic Black/Red ankle. To communicate the vintage feel, Gibbs opted for a super-soft leather upper, while the ankles themselves are a weather suede to reflect the aged nature of the shoes. Both feature the aforementioned exposed yellow stitching as well as a UN/LA flap situated just below at the “Wings” logo.
