Air Jordan 13 x SoleFly

December 29, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 13 x SoleFly • Celestine Blue

SoleFly is back again, celebrating the beauty of Florida and the joys of yacht life with a fresh AJ13. The original pair propelled MJ to his 6th championship win—but this edition is all about off-court (and on-deck) ease. Big details like the holographic cat’s eye, woven tongue and toe box, and Celestine Blue dimpled upper are grounded in neutral hues for a shoe that’s just as at home on the boat as it is on the streets of South Miami. And with a plush padded collar and two Nike Air units underfoot, you’ll get your sea legs in no time.





Air Max 1 • Ugly Duckling Pack

December 19, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Max 1 • Pecan Ochre & Honey Dew

Meet the leader of the pack. Inspired by French architecture, celebrated in sport and revered by fashion, this was the first shoe in the family to reveal Air to the world. Smooth leather contrasts with airy mesh to update this long-standing icon with visual texture. With a fast-paced look, tried-and-true cushioning and classic wavy mudguard, it’s no wonder these kicks have reigned supreme since 1987.

Momma duck said, “quack, quack, quack”—and a new ugly duckling came running back. Inspired by the coveted Dunk collection, the leader of the pack returns with its own eccentric flair. From colors to materials (wait ’til you feel the pigskin nubuck), the Air Max 1 brings all the rebellious details from the original pack and then some. And that embroidered duck on the heel? It calls, “that’s right, keep on staring.”

Air Max 1 • Ironstone

Meet the leader of the pack. Inspired by French architecture, celebrated in sport and revered by fashion, this was the first shoe in the family to reveal Air to the world. Smooth leather contrasts with airy mesh to update this long-standing icon with visual texture. With a fast-paced look, tried-and-true cushioning and classic wavy mudguard, it’s no wonder these kicks have reigned supreme since 1987.

Following the release of a similarly-toned Air Max 95 iteration earlier this year, Nike now readies its classic Air Max 1 runners in “Ironstone.” The upcoming pairs continue to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the iconic Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette, arriving in clean white perforated mesh and light “Sail” suede panels.

The definitive “Ironstone” hues are strewn across the side Swooshes, heel embroidery, and upper eyelets while subtle neon hits decorate the insoles and special tongue tab patches which feature the text: “Nike Air consists of a special gas, pressurized inside a durable, flexible, urethane skin. After each step or jump, Nike Air cushioning springs back to its original shape.” Rounding out the look are retro-toned sole units featuring clear Air bubble windows.






Air Jordan 11 • Varsity Red

December 8, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 11 • Varsity Red

Let’s cut to the chase—the AJ11 is all-time. MJ won 72 games and a title while wearing ’em. Now, the icon returns in classic Chicago colors: Varsity Red and White. From its slick patent leather mudguard to the frosted outsole, this Tinker Hatfield design brings the off-court allure. And for the final touch? Full-length Air cushioning is the cherry on top (er, bottom).

December 3, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 5 x DJ Khaled • Crimson Bliss

Who’s the best? Sure, it takes a community, but we’re just gonna say it—with kicks this fresh, it’s gonna be you. As part of DJ Khaled’s “We The Best” collection, this AJ5 takes your game to the next level. The pastel colourway with Leche Blue accents, a luxe quilted liner and original details (check out the lace toggles and spiky midsole) showcase your style. Inspired by MJ to KEEP GOING and never stop, Khaled put his own touch on the classic with the “We The Best” logo on the heel and removed the upper pod for a slimmer fit. And don’t forget to flip the tongue—a hidden message reminds you to push through all the noise.





Air Jordan 1 • Lost and Found

December 1, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 1 • Lost & Found

You already know what the Air Jordan 1 is all about. It’s a staple of sneaker culture. The Air Jordan 1, however, wasn’t destined to be an all-time classic.

When it first debuted in 1985, there weren’t grand expectations. Instead, there were critics loudly chirping about Nike’s decision to give Michael Jordan a large sneaker deal before he played a single game and the rookie’s choice to sign with a company that, up to that point, was best known for running shoes.

Jordan quickly flipped the narrative on the court by winning Rookie of the Year, averaging 28.2 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 5.9 APG in 1985 while donning Air Jordan 1s. MJ’s meteoric rise propelled the Air Jordan 1, resulting in nationwide demand and making the sneakers a must-have for hoop heads. The AJ1 “Chicago” was inspired by the high top Air Jordan 1 original colorway, first released in 1985. The shoe harkens back to a time when shoe boxes were often lost in inventory stockrooms, only to be found again years later. Before the advent of sophisticated inventory systems, products were typically tracked with pen and paper. Human error was inevitable and frequently resulted in shoe boxes with mismatched lids.

The AJ1 Chicago is a throwback to this era, drawing inspiration from what an original 1985 Air Jordan 1 would look like if found decades later in a dusty stock room.

According to the Jordan design team, the goal of this shoe was to create a “time travel moment,” especially for a new generation of consumers. The process of buying a shoe today is very different from what it was like in the 80s. This sneaker attempts to capture that lost and found feeling, giving consumers a taste of what a box-fresh, vintage AJ1 would have looked like back in the day.

The Jordan Brand team responsible for developing the AJ1 Chicago obsessed every detail of the shoe’s design to bring this nostalgic story to life. Jordan designers studied multiple pairs of original AJ1s in varying states of distress to capture the nuances of the shoe’s look, described as having “light to no wear but with materials that sat for years in a box and didn’t withstand the test of time.”

In a nod to the “lost and found” nature of the colorway, the updated Chicago comes with a mismatched box lid that speaks to the shoes being misplaced in back rooms and basements.

Designers added extra details both inside and outside the box that serve as a shout out to shoe promotions created once upon a time. According to the Jordan design team, every detail should be recognizable to those who grew up back in those days, while giving new sneakerheads a chance to experience what it was like.

One such example is the inclusion with every pair of a vintage receipt meant to replicate actual receipts that found their way into the hands of collectors from deadstock shoeboxes. The receipt calls up images of how sneakers used to be acquired in analog fashion before the internet age.

Jordan designers took an approach that gave the 2022 Air Jordan 1 Chicago “an edge, a narrative and a connection.” They wanted a look and feel that came with a history tied back to something many consumers may not even be aware of. Ultimately, whether old school or new generation, Jordan Brand wants every consumer to see beauty in the story behind the shoe.


A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 4

November 26, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


A Ma Maniére X Air Jordan IV

This moment is inspired by the Black and Brown leaders changing the world from the heart of their community with purpose, passion and vision. Built on the value of consistent action being the only recipe for progress, a standard set by trailblazers committed to the tireless work generational change would take to be achieved, the A Ma Maniére Air Jordan IV draws on the promise of youth to be the catalysts for change, standing up in the face of adversity and divisiveness. Standing firm on our ethos of timelessness on a silhouette renowned for its impact and significance across time, this moment serves to bring a generation together to form a better future with hope and bravery in the face of doubt and uncertainty. This is about where we’re going – and the future depends on us all.






Air Jordan 1 • Retro High OG – Patent Bred

The legend continues, and what better way to spring into 2022 than with a fresh pair of Breds on your feet? Beginning December 30 2021, the Jumpman delivers a Jordan 1 Retro High OG that gets the black, white and Varsity Red “Patent” palette with a luxe patent-leather treatment. This sophisticated sneak gets a predominantly black treatment, which extends to the mudguards, quarter panels and throat. Black laces atop the nylon throat add to the elegance. A Varsity Red toebox speckled with ventilated holes ties in nicely with the heel counter, red side Swooshes and ankle overlay. A white outsole adds a bit of lightness sandwiched between upper and outsole, and Nike Air branding lands on the tongue tag and insoles, with a Swoosh on the classic rubber outsole. Originally conceived in the mid-1980s, the Air Jordan 1 High delivers serious style on and off the court all these years later. This patent leather rendition is a modern-day meditation on a Bred masterpiece.

Air Jordan 3 • Fire Red


It’s the return of a legend: The Tinker Hatfield design that solidified MJ’s relationship with Nike returns to its original 1988 form. Fire Red accents and cracked Black and Iron Grey leather on the toe and heel nod to the iconic release, while “NIKE AIR” written on the back brings true throwback appeal. Speaking of Air—you can count on the tried-and-true cushioning underfoot to keep you going.




Air Jordan 6 • Magnet and College Navy

MJ’s 6th signature shoe debuted during the 1990-91 season, and will always be remembered as what he wore when he won his first ring. This fresh take on the AJ6 brings you a subtle Magnet and College Navy colorway that nods to college hoops and makes summertime easy to style. Suede leather ups your off-court game while translucent accents on the outsole cool your every step.

Air Max 1 • Dirty Denim

September 1, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Max 1 • Dirty Denim

The Air Max 1 “Dirty Denim” nods to the coveted 2003 drop that brought an aged-to-perfection look to the leader of the sneaker pack. Rough ’em up, wear ’em every day—the premium leather and washed denim get better with time. A Lemon Wash midsole boosts the vintage aesthetic while classic stitching along the mudguard and heel adds Americana flair. With this throwback look, worn well and well-worn have become one and the same.


Air Jordan 1 – Bleached Coral


The Air Jordan 1 and its OG makeups may be the pinnacle of retro MJ lore, but that doesn’t mean the timeless silhouette can’t receive a refresh. Covered in heritage Jordan Brand colors recalling past styles — like a Black Toe and Grey Fog lower heel with premium White underlays — the Air Jordan 1 “Bleached Coral” is a modern arrangement in makeup and placement. A pop of Bleached Coral showing off its “NIKE AIR” detail on the tongue brings a bit of seasonal color into a muted rotation.





Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 SP – Heavy

To celebrate 35 years of a sneaker icon, we drop our second Air Max 1 in festival fashion. In August of 1969, almost half a million festival goers made a trip to Bethel, NY and sent a message to the universe. They were dressed in the eclectic fashions of the time: faded denim, surplus fatigues (including M-65s and tiger camo), corduroy, and decorated with peaceful protest motifs. Jackets carried fringes, hair was decorated with flowers. The event concluded as a lasting symbol of ’60s counterculture. With the Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 SP “Heavy,” we link the legacy of that August weekend to a lineage of radical youth expression. While the material mix is similar to the “Mellow,” it’s heavier. We’ve got denim, tiger camo and leather, and these three materials juxtapose with the softness of wide wale corduroy at the collar. The “Heavy” also includes patterned elements of bandanna, cowhide, and woven material panels. The former, a Concepts-exclusive, approximates the famous guitar straps employed by festival performers.









Air Max 90 Denim

June 5, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Max 90 Denim

The Nike Air Max 90 stays loyal to its running roots with an iconic Waffle sole, stitched overlays and a classic Air unit. A denim-inspired colorway provides a fun update to a ’90s icon, while Max Air cushioning makes wearing these on as comfortable as pulling on your favorite jeans.





Air Jordan 11 Low • 72-10

May 24, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 11 Low • 72-10

Let’s cut to the chase – the embroidered tongue tag says it all: “Inspired by the most historic season led by the greatest player ever.”

Which player? The Jumpman. Which season? The one where MJ won 72 games and a title wearing the Air Jordan 11. That season, vanquishing opponents in patent leather luxury became his deal on the court. Off the court, he could just as easily step into rooms and make moves in the shiny, exotic car-inspired sneaker. With a Black patent leather and tumbled leather upper working like a dynastic duo, the “72-10” Air Jordan 11 Low pays homage to that magical year in premium style.



Air Jordan 5 • Raging Bull 2021

The beloved Air Jordan 5 Raging Bull is making a return this year. Without a doubt one of the best non-OG colorways of Michael Jordan’s 5th signature shoe, the Red suede Air Jordan 5 originally released alongside the “3M” pair as part of the Air Jordan 5 Raging Bulls Pack aka the Air Jordan 5 Toro Bravo Pack back in 2009.

The eye-catching Air Jordan 5 gets covered in a Varsity Red suede all over the upper with Black accents hitting the eyelets, inner liner, the Jumpman on the tongues and heels, and the midsole. Silver reflective 3M tongues, “23” embroidered ankles, white and red shark teeth on the midsole, and an icy blue translucent outsole with a red Jumpman wrap things up. Official images show that the model will also come with special packaging that mimics that of the original release.






Air Jordan 6 • Midnight Navy

A colorway that’s been in the vault for over 20 years is coming back strong this spring. Keeping to OG specs, the Air Jordan 6 “Midnight Navy,” first released as a retro in 2000, is colorblocked in a familiar fashion for fans of the AJ6. A clean all-White premium leather upper allows for a crisp juxtaposition with Midnight Navy accents on the midsole, embroidered Jumpman, heel piece, and tongue. Its icy, translucent outsole finishes the style with a cool edge.



Air Jordan 9 • Chile Red

May 12, 2022 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers


Air Jordan 9 • Chile Red

MJ had to switch it up from the court to the diamond when the Air Jordan 9 hit shelves in 1993, but the Tinker Hatfield-designed style still brought the heat with a high-top shape and a unique mixed materials mudguard and upper. Here, Jordan Brand brings back the heat in a “Chile Red” makeup — no extra sauce needed for this all-Chile Red quilted stitched upper, patent leather mudguard, and shiny midsole. Spicy enough to stand alone, this heritage-inspired AJ9 colorway proves that the game will never really end.
