Anna Wintour & 'Vogue' Edit Nike's Air Jordan 1 and 3 Silhouettes

The Editor-In-Chief gives each sneaker the “Anna Wintour Okay (AWOK).”

By //Footwear

Vogue and its Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour link up with Nike for the first time ever to “edit” the brand’s iconic Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3 silhouettes.

Each of the four models — a sail AJ1, university red AJ1, black tweed AJ3 and red tweed AJ3 — feature the script “AWOK,” something that’s all too familiar, or maybe not, to Anna’s colleagues. “When Anna Wintour gives her approval for editorial or creative, she simply writes ‘AWOK,’ which stands for ‘Anna Wintour Okay,’” reads the accompanying press release. “The Vogue editor-in-chief teamed up with Jordan Brand to put this approval stamp on two iconic silhouettes for the ultimate co-sign.”

Additionally, the AJ1 pairs feature ultra-soft leather uppers with bold metallic zippers and an “Edited by Vogue” Nike Air tag and the “AWOK” signature on the sole and tongue. The AJ3 models however come constructed with a tweed encasing and glimmering black heels, a nod to Anna’s signature Chanel tweed suits and sunglasses (Nike has yet to provide a full set of photos for the AJ3). All come in a premium box with two suede dust bags.

The AJ1 “High Zip AWOK” will be available on July 21 at Hirshleifers, Kith, Nordstrom x Nike and North America Jumpman stores (306 Yonge in Toronto and 32 South State in Chicago) as well as on SNKRS app on July 23 in North America. The AJ3 “AWOK” will be available September 7.
