Get ready for what's rumored to be one of the hottest releases of August 2023: the Union LA x Jordan collab. According to reliable leaker @MrUnloved1s, the upcoming Union x AJ1 will feature an official colorway of Sail/Wolf Grey/Muslin/Pale Vanilla/Kinetic Green/Metallic Gold and will retail for $200.
When the news of this collaboration first broke in January of this year, sneakerheads raged with excitement, sharing countless mock-ups of what they thought the shoe might look like. However, @MrUnloved1s has since confirmed that these designs are purely speculative and that the actual shoe will be nothing close in terms of design.
So, what can we expect from this highly anticipated release? While details are scarce, we do know that the colorway will feature a mix of neutrals and pops of bright green and metallic gold. In terms of design, we'll have to wait and see what Union LA and Jordan have in store for us. But if the past is any indication, we can expect a unique twist on the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette. The 2018 Union x Jordan release featured a deconstructed look, with different materials and colors stitched together to create a patchwork effect. Will this new collaboration follow a similar theme, or will it be something completely unexpected? Only time will tell.
