Whether the latest Air Jordan ends up on your Wish List or between a Cop or Can decision, we are still talking about the Jumpman shoes. A burning debate within the sneaker streets is always "Does it make sense when our beloved classics crossover with high-end fashion?" A root cause for the questions is because we are connected through these silhouettes by sports and watching the greats play (giving away my age here). I have always said I can appreciate a bold new design because it takes creativity and courage to step out the box. Successful collaborations have proven true with the WMNS Vogue Jordans and also the latest Aleali May Air Jordan 1 which incorporated details from her love for high fashion.

Does it always work? This is left to perception and preference. The latest Air Jordan spotting at Paris Fashion Week had the internet buzzing with questions. The COMME DES GARCONS x Air Jordan 1 is dipped in black with details that will remind you of a goth vibe. Embellished with silver studs, an enlarged tongue with Jumpman branding, and an ankle strap with metal detailing. It does remind me of a motorcyle boot spliced with a sneaker.

A white pair has also been circulating the e-streets, and I have questions about this take on the AJ1. While I am a fan of CDG as a brand, I am also intrigued by what was strutting down the HOMME Plus runway. Will this shoe make it to the public? Time will tell. Stay locked for more details and let us know your thoughts on the CNKDaily Instagram.
