Hot on the heels of Virgil Abloh’s collaborative Air Jordan 1 model being named “Shoe of the Year” via the Footwear News Achievement Awards, The Shoe Surgeon thought to commemorate the Off-White™ designer with a creation of his own. The sneaker artist fashioned a bespoke iteration of the famed AJ1 model — infusing his own signature twist into the fold.

Adopting the same tricolored black, red and white color scheme Abloh used, the custom design, instead, spotlights premium python leather, which envelops the entire upper. The word “PYTHON” lands on the midsole, the same area where the word “AIR” appears on the award-winning version. What are your thoughts on The Shoe Surgeon’s design?
