Last year, we saw EJDER shine its editorial spotlight on some M+RC Noir pieces. The London-based retailer is back, this time with a custom pair of SB sneakers that mash up Nike’s AF1, Dunks and Air Jordan 1 silhouettes in one.

Made with Ziv Lee, the idea behind the custom sneaker was to create a deconstructed mosaic of East meets West references that look back at earlier footwear design cues. The uppers are mostly dominated by blue and white, with hits of orange appearing at the heel and the laces. The tongue tab is marked with Nike SB and “Dunk Low Pro.” Black laces are looped through the suede white lace cage that continues through to the edge of the toe box as well as heel. Blue leather panels appear at the sidewalls with half of the Swoosh logo done up in perforations — the other half is made with extra suede fabric that gets tucked under the embroidered heel cap. Next to it is an orange AJ1 collar complemented with a Jumpman pull tab. As a finishing note, the perforated toe cap is graced with a white Swoosh, while a black and blue sole round out the sneakers.

This footwear piece comes with the debut of EJDER’s in-house collection during LFWM. A collaborative pop-up with the British Fashion Council will be held, showcasing its assemblage of cut-and-sews titled “‘A NAIL THAT STICKS OUT GETS HAMMERED.” The collection draws inspiration from communities of Harajuku and Northern British Estates.

Stay tuned for more information on the release.
