Jordan Brand Gives the AJ1 a Luxurious Makeover with the ‘Heirloom’ Colorway

There have been countless iterations of the Air Jordan, and for good reason. As one of (if not) the most iconic sneaker silhouettes of all time, it has undergone one makeover after another, and the latest one is as sumptuous as ever. The robust Heirloom design puts a luxurious spin on the classic pair of kicks.

Nike claims that this colorway is inspired by a single notion: “quality inspired by the greatest player ever.” And while many who keep up with the league may be willing to debate that, not even the biggest LeBron fan can deny the remarkable refashioning Jordan Brand has done here. Its Vachetta Tan-colored leather upper that’s smooth to the touch and is bound to get better with age. Like with any wallet, jacket, or leather product in general, its natural patina will appear over time, paving the way for a seasoned look that you won’t find on just any pair of Js.

Sure, we’ve seen this particular shade of leather overhaul other Jordans, but what’s more is its stark, black denim overlays, paving the way for a mature-looking sneaker that’s built for swanky dinner parties or festive soirées — seriously, they might be as fancy as any dress shoes. The shoe sits on a tan outsole that matches the leather look, then gets rounded out with an unmistakable Nike Air-branded tongue.

The handsome Air Jordan 1 ‘Heirloom’ is available for $180 through select Nike partners. Visit the brand’s site to find local stockists.
