StockX provides a market to cop a wide range of kicks in varying in levels of rarity, including the newly released Union LA Collab X Air Jordan 1 in the Blue and Black toe.

At first glance, the duo appears to be a Frankenstein-esque mashup; however, Chris Gibbs, for this collaborative effort, wanted to a take a design approach that would elicit an emotional response. Allusions to Michael Jordan’s rookie year — alongside incorporating aesthetics referencing the long history AJ1 iterations — appear throughout. A worn-in look has been fostered, as the sneakers feature: nubuck Swoosh, thicker leather, yellowed midsole, exposed foam and curled edges. Additional accents from the graphics printed on insole and tissue paper and the larger-than-normal “WINGS” logo pays tribute to the shoe’s legacy.

Head over to StockX to buy the Union LA Collab X Air Jordan 1 in the Blue and Black toe now.
