Ceeze, a bespoke designer mostly known for his footwear concoctions, has teamed up with North Carolina-based aircraft recycler Aircraft Solutions USA Inc. to reimagine the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 “The Ten” with airplane trash.

Aircraft Solutions provided scrap material from a set of Lufthansa seats for Ceeze to produce 12 pairs of upcycling kicks. Maintaining much of Virgil Abloh’s original design, the shoes dawn a white patent leather toe box and quarter panel, contrasted by grey seat leather with hand-painted yellow edging and a 3M Swoosh.

Best of all, they were made to give back. Ceeze, Crep Protect, DJ Skee and jeffstaple have come together to raffle off a single pair of the above shoes with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the NAACP’s legal defense fund and the Philando Castile Foundation. For a single $5 USD donation, you can enter for a chance to win the $3,500 USD upcycled shoes, in addition to one of Ceeze’s ceramic SS001 Yeezy Sneaker Candles and a VIP Care Kit courtesy of Crep Protect.

Head over to ceezemc.com to make a donation and enter the raffle, which will close on Monday, June 22, at 6 p.m. EDT.
