Imbued with a rich narrative traversing continents, the Jordan Brand keeps its homage to Japanese craft flourishing by unveiling a new Sashiko-inspired Air Jordan 1 Low.
This iteration follows closely on the heels of the recently-revealed "Multi-Color Sashiko" that takes the sashiko narrative forward with a subtle reinterpretation.
This newly-revealed model features tasteful sashiko-inspired stitching predominantly on the collar, Wings, and Jumpman branding, infusing a tricolor threadwork of red, white, and blue, while a blacked-out thread adorns the Swoosh. Unlike its vibrant predecessor, this rendition takes on a more restrained approach, making sashiko’s decorative aesthetic a discreet highlight against a monochrome backdrop.
The base and midsole elegantly alternate between the same trio of colors, creating a sleek juxtaposition against the sashiko embellishments. As an ode to meticulous craftsmanship, each stitch narrates a tale of cultural confluence, where modern-day sneaker culture respectfully nods to traditional Japanese textile artistry.
