Recently revealed as the “Satin Shadows” but in actuality much more, the Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 is debuted by the style savant herself.
Sporting mixed materials and tones tied to a couple notable LA franchises, May tells the story of her AJ1 herself via her IG:
“Growing up in South Central, LA and receiving Jordan’s from Uncle G, a young Aleali would’ve thought having her own shoe was impossible.
One of the many things I’ve taken away from Michael Jordan is that he made the impossible, possible. This collaboration with @jumpman23 is dedicated to my city, Los Angeles.
•AJ1 “Shadow” as the foundation
•Corduroy from my dads house slippers he purchased at the Slauson Swapmeet
•Chenille, Satin and the Orange tab from the Kings Starter Jackets”
See for yourself in the styled shots below and look for the Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 to launch on October 27th in LA followed by a global drop the day after on October 28th.
