Calling the Air Jordan I and the Air Force 1 “classics,” is kind of like saying that the 95-96 Bulls were a good team. In the broadest sense, it’s factually correct, but it spectacularly undersells the lasting historical impact. Calling the Jordan I and the Air Force 1 “genre defining, global style icons” would be more like it.
Get ready to experience these two old-school icons, like never before, with the women’s 1 Reimagined collection.
The 1 Reimagined collection brings together 14 women from across Nike’s design departments, to apply their various fields of expertise across ten different interpretations of the Air Jordan I and Air Force 1.
The reimagined designs are centered around five different character archetypes, the explorer, jester, lover, rebel, and sage, which serve as the inspiration for each shoe in the collection.
The 1 Reimagined Collection combines progressive radicalism with an austere, almost minimalist sensibility, as changes to the physical layout of the shoes are combined with a unifying theme of light grey, suede, nubuck, and mesh construction.
The Jordan Explorer both reinforces and subverts the adventurous spirit of its namesake, as a military boot inspired silhouette is rendered in a layered build featuring translucent materials.
The Air Force 1 Explorer opts for a streamlined, yet utilitarian approach, with a lockdown strap in place of traditional laces and inner bootie construction bring a contemporary feel to the familiar silhouette.
