Nigel Sylvester’s “Noise Cancelling” Air Jordan 1 Sees a Wider Release
Previewed in November of last year, Nike’s “Noise Cancelling” Pack launched as part of their new House of Innovation in NYC.
New York City is one loud mother. But there’s been a few times where sporting greats have silenced the city, enough that you could hear a pin drop down in Times Square. The original five-pack of customize-encouraged sneakers included the Nike Zoom Fly 2, which represented long-distance runner Shalane Flanagan and her triumph at the Women’s NYC marathon in 2017. The Air Force 1 Low, which served Odell Beckham Jr., with “the catch” that needs no explanation. The Cortez honored Maria Sharapova, who at the age of 19 won her second Grand Slam at the US Open in Flushing Meadows. The Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro represents the Black Mamba, who hushed the MSG crowd by dropping a lazy 61 points in 2009 and The Air Jordan 1 High, which was connected to Nigel Sylvester, who burst into the mainstream with a daring image of himself across the tracks at the busy 145th St. subway station.
Now, in 2019, the latter will receive a wider release on Nike SNKRS this weekend. And while Jordan Brand have reworked the design — including protruding Swooshes and translucent tongue tabs — they’ve left the color blocking entirely up to you, with the Jumpman encouraging you to paint, sharpie or do whatever the hell you want to the uppers.
