The shoe that started MJ's legacy transcended the idea of what basketball sneakers could become when it first hit the court. Known as ‘Couture’, these Jordan’s are thought to be inspired by the luxury detailing on high-end sports cars. It all starts with the ultra soft and premium leather which extends across the upper. Whilst the look stays true to the original Nike Jordan 1, that colourway is definitely a one-of-a-kind.
The predominant shade of black gets contrasted by hits of red in the form of a bar that travels across the rear of the shoe. This extends across the sidewall, covering the entire Swoosh.
