After a selection of teasers made its way on to social media, the Union x Jordan Brand capsule has officially been revealed. Union‘s own Chris Gibbs took inspiration from discovering special vintage pieces for the range, namely digging up old Nike sportswear. Retro graphics and logos are utilized for the apparel as well as giving the fabrics a well-worn feel for that true vintage vibe. As for the kicks, the Air Jordan 1 also gets a mixed-and-matched makeover to echo a special DIY aesthetic – stitches are exposed and soles are slightly discolored to mimic aging.

In the closer look above, you’ll get a better sense of the details and thought that went into the collection. Washed fabrics and cracked screen prints elevate the whole theme, making the collective a must-have for any die-hard vintage sportswear aficionado.

See detailed shots of the Union and Jordan Brand range here and let us know which ones are your standouts. The capsule is expected to arrive on November 17 at select Jordan Brand retailers as well as Union LA. Stay tuned with us for additional pricing information.
