If you couldn’t cop the beautiful fragment design x Air Jordan 1 last year, here’s your chance to get something that looks very much like it at first glance.
Call it “Soar”, “Reverse Fragments” or anything else you want, there’s no mistaking that the Air Jordan 1.5 coming out this weekend bears an uncanny resemblance to the fragment design x Air Jordan 1 that was launched to great fanfare late last year.
It features the same colorway as the fragments, but with reversed color blocking. That means the overlays around the toe box and laces are now clad in royal blue leather, while the heel tab is decked out in black.
Other differences include the usage of the Air Jordan 2 sole (hence the Air Jordan 1.5 silhouette), the lack of the embossed fragment design logo and the lettering on the wings logo that states “Nike” instead of “Air Jordan”.
The trade-offs are almost negligible, especially for those who simply can’t resist the sweet color scheme. The Air Jordan 1.5 “The Return” is priced at US$150 and is set to drop on October 17th.
