Known for his custom-made high fashion and streetwear hybrid shoes, New York sneaker customizer Ceeze has remixed Travis Scott’s forthcoming Air Jordan 1 “Cactus Jack” with another cultural heavyweight in mind. Taking cues from Michael Jordan’s legendary 1985 Nike-sponsored game in Trieste, Italy, Ceeze has transformed Scott’s AJ1 into the luxe “Shattered Jack.”

Drawing directly from the iconic Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard,” Ceeze’s bespoke sneaker incorporates cracked white suede atop the upper, symbolizing cracked glass and also lending the shoe a great deal of visual texture. Akin to the colors of the “Shattered Backboard,” glistening orange leather sports an iridescent finish to reflect the movement of Jordan‘s jersey in the air as he destroyed the hoop’s backboard back in ‘85.

As the base of the shoe is Scott‘s AJ1, however, the sneaker artist has retained some key visual signifiers, including the reversed lateral side Swoosh. Near the ankle, Ceeze used high-frequency welding to create three-dimensional “Wish You Were Here” in the leather, reinforcing the premium motif with ostrich leather on the toe box, Swoosh and eyelets, finishing the design off with a black Napa leather for the heel.

The bespoke Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Jack” will drop on May 11 — the same day that Nike launches Scott’s AJ1 — via Ceeze’s website for $2,300 USD.
