Air Jordan 1 Laser 30th Anniversary


Jordan Brand looks to commemorate its 30th anniversary by bringing back the somewhat-scrutinized laser treatment. Here we get a look at the technique on the special “30th Anniversary” edition of the Air Jordan 1 Laser. The white leather upper is overshadowed by metallic laser printing utilized all throughout. A 3M reflective Swoosh brands the pair alongside, matching the tongue tag marking accordingly. Equipped with tonal laces, the AJ1’s then showcase a translucent outsole on the bottom. Look for the Air Jordan 1 Laser “30th Anniversary” to release on February 8

While availability at a retail level may not be slated, Nike has commemorated one of the brand’s more surprising yet important research landmarks by immortalizing the iconic Air Force 1 sole in Ice Lolly form. I neeeeeed one of these!!
