Jordan Brand presents the Gucci colorway of its classic Air Jordan 1. Borrowing the luxury brand’s color combo, the upper pairs textured black leather on most of the upper with smooth turquoise leather on the ankle, heel and toe. Finished off with a red padded ankle closure, outsole and laces, the choice of texture and color gives the hi-top a very bold, almost reptilian quality. Other features of the kicks include a perforated toe section for air flow, white midsole and embossed red Air Jordan logo on the side. Those hoping to score a pair of these limited edition kicks need look no further than LIMITED EDT in Singapore when they drop December 10th. [See More]

Johnny Kilroy was a fictional character invented by Nike following Michael Jordan‘s abrupt retirement before the ’93-’94 NBA season. A superhero of sorts who endorsed the Air Jordan IX and even had his own Upper Deck trading card, the mysterious character helped to “replace” Jordan as the face for the new signature sneaker. To commemorate Kilroy and the other alter egos assumed by MJ during that season, Jordan Brand recently released the Air Jordan IX “Johnny Kilroy,” part of the “Kilroy Pack” of sneakers. Next in line, the Air Jordan IX “Motorboat Jones” will debut on December 1st featuring tonal red nubuck uppers along with a black outsole, lining, pull tab and laces.
