If the “Panda Pigeon” was too much of a hybrid for your tastes, Nike has prepped a furry take on the Air Jordan 1 for the panda purists. Thanks to sneakerheads @hanzuying, we have a variety of close-up looks at the unusual silhouette.
Unsurprisingly, the AJ1 “Panda” is executed in monochrome, like its namesake animal, with alternating black and white panels blending fur (black) with grain leather (white). A black outsole, sockliner and laces keep the shoe understated, while the white “AIR JORDAN” badge offers a splash of contrast against the rear patch of fuzz. A normal “NIKE AIR” tag on the tongue completes the playful design.
Stay tuned for more information about the release date for the distinctive “Panda.”
