Nowadays, it isn’t uncommon to spot Jordan Brand kicks in non-basketball sport settings. In the NFL, many players wear rare Air Jordan cleats — featuring everything from the 1 in its iconic colorways to team-themed Air Jordan 14s. Another sport that has seen an uptick in Jumpman appearances is golf. A favorite activity of Michael Jordan’s, it’s no surprise that he enlisted his design team to tap into the greens. Recently, a greater focused has been placed on skateboarding with launches such as the Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 “Pine Green” bringing sneakerheads and skaters together.
In continuation of this crossover, Nike revealed a new “Born to Fly” theme in white and “University Blue” earlier this month on the Air Jordan 1 Low. Now, it has appeared with a black and “Fitness Red” combination. Utilizing a color palette fitting for fans of the red-hot Miami Heat, the sneaker utilizes a leather construction that sees red and orange light up its white Swooshes. A striking red lining and metallic-colored tongue also enliven the pair while various skate-themed drawings and phrases appear at the medial and interior.
Nike has yet to disclose any release information regarding the Air Jordan 1 Low “Born to Fly” in this black and red colorway. Stay tuned for official launch details as we expect it to arrive via the Swoosh and select Jumpman retailers in the coming months at a price of $120 USD.
