1997 is the year that Jordan Brand veered off to become its own brand separate from Nike. And to celebrate its 25th anniversary, the six-time champion’s sportswear company is crafting celebratory footwear like this Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT colorway that has just been unveiled by way of official imagery.
Playful and vivid patterns are what give these sneakers their spirit. The cut-out Swoosh logos on the lateral and medial walls as well as the collars have been fashioned with multiple brushstroke patterns that come in retro-inspired purple, pink, blue and teal hues. Bold royal blue accents also show up here as they fall on the ball-and-wings logos, the interior liners and the outsoles. If you peep a look at the tongue branding, the Jumpman team has slightly modified it so that the usual “Zoom Air” hits land on the right shoe and the left side sports a “25” adjacent to a tiny Jordan insignia to call out the aforementioned anniversary. Elsewhere on the upper, you’ll find smooth leather panels that come dressed in a muted shade of white.
Check out a detailed look at the pair above and be on the lookout for Nike and other retailers to drop these in the coming months.
