Earlier this year, sneaker enthusiasts were treated to a preview of the captivating “Sashiko“-themed Air Jordan 1 Lows. This unique design draws inspiration from the Japanese needlework technique, showcasing intricate stitching that elegantly extends from the toe to the heel. The result is a visually striking pair that pays homage to the art of Sashiko.
The upcoming Air Jordan 1 Lows embrace the essence of Wabi Sabi, an important Japanese concept that finds beauty in imperfection and the passage of time. The shoes boast a combination of white canvas and distressed denim uppers, with exposed stitching stretching over the raw-hemmed overlay panels, adding a touch of artisanal charm.
The iconic Jordan ball-and-wing logos are tastefully embroidered on the heel, while black tumbled leathers grace the lateral Swoosh and heel counter, adding a touch of contrast and refinement to the design. For a playful twist, cork insoles feature mismatched graphics, and debossed Jumpman logos adorn the tongue tab, further showcasing the attention to detail in this collaboration.
Completing the overall look are aged midsoles, adding a vintage allure to the shoes, and black rubber outsoles for durability and style.
Although a firm release date for the Air Jordan 1 Low “Sashiko” has not been officially announced, sneaker enthusiasts can anticipate their arrival on shelves in the coming months, courtesy of Nike and select retailers. The anticipation for this distinctive pair is already building, and fans of the Air Jordan series and Japanese-inspired designs alike are eagerly awaiting further details.
