The sought-after Nigel Sylvester colourway, originally released in 2018, returns as an exotic masterpiece thanks to the renowned sneaker customizer. The AJ1‘s upper has been hand-crafted from beige premium python leather, which has been marked up with distressed details. A half-white, half-brown leather Swoosh branding can then be seen wrapped around the shoe, while black leather dresses the inner lining, tongue and laces. Finally gold Shoe Surgeon logos have been embossed on the tongue tabs.
On his new creation, The Show Surgeon stated:
“I thought Nigel had the best AJ1 of 2018. Just from riding BMX, Nigel has paved his path of opportunity, from creating amazing videos, to getting his own colabs with Nike, to sitting front row at the fashion shows. These are my nod to him and all his success. This shoe entails a lot of manual labour, but it’s worth every bit.”
Interested buyers can head over to the Shoe Surgeon’s online store to purchase the remastered Nigel Sylvester’s Air Jordan 1 “Lux” for $3,000 USD this Saturday, February 9. Only 11 pairs will be made available.
