Social justice, activism, and protests have been focal points through sports, pop culture, and public discourse for decades. While this year is no different, the combination of COVID-19 along with more instances of racism (there systemic or systematic), has placed a larger emphasis on addressing the atrocities that continue to face Black Americans at a disproportionate rate.

Sneaker brands, athletes, boutiques, and many other entities within the industry are making statements and lending a hand to do their part.

Custom sneakers are using their platforms and art to bring more light to the issue. The Sneaker Journalists envisioned a custom Air Jordan 1 that combines social justice and activism through the years. From MLK to Colin Kaepernick to Ahmaud Arbery, this AJ1 is meant to be provocative above everything else.

Take a detailed look at the pair below, and be sure to follow The Sneaker Journalists on Instagram.
