One cheeky sneaker method that Michael Jordan‘s imprint will indulge in is utilizing the color palettes of his basketball rivals to create newer footwear colorways. His iconic battles against Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics have been immortalized through various “Lucky Green” Jordan iterations. The motif has been seen on models like the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG and the Air Jordan 13, and now the Air Jordan 1 Low Elevate is being cooked up with the same presentation.
Its shamrock-like, titular hue does most of the talking here as it wraps the upper half’s overlays and the treading down below. Neutral contrasting arrives by way of white accents that sprinkle towards the toe boxes, quarter panels and the chunky platform midsoles. Solid black notes then follow as they land on the laces, tongues and Swooshes while the interior liners are done up with a soft beige hue. Insoles have been adorned with parquet patterns to channel the look of the hardwood court TD Garden, and special ankle chains that include a Jumpman logo, shamrock, “23” logo and “1986” charms come packaged with the shoes.
Official images of the pair can be seen in the gallery above, and you can find Nike and select retailers dropping these in the coming weeks.
