This Air Jordan 1 OG "Bred" Is Covered in 20 Years of Paint Splatter

See what they look like now.

After being bombarded by pairs of pre-distressed and deliberately scribbled-on sneakers, it’s refreshing to spot a special pair that has years’ worth of being worn and torn. Acclaimed British artist Dave White has taken to Instagram to post his beloved pair of 1985 Air Jordan 1 OGs and it’s peak DIY.

“These are original, for the past 20 years have been the shoes I’ve painted in. Echoes and memories of past paintings are reflected in them,” said White in the caption.
