Model: Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Zoom Califia
Drop date: April 22
Approx. price: S$239
Comfort and style: For her latest collaboration with Jordan Brand, renowned sneakerhead, stylist and model, Aleali May has chosen to tinker with the Air Jordan 1 Zoom – a protro rendition of the silhouette that offers a full-length Zoom midsole.
The Los Angeles native’s Air Jordan 1 Zoom named Califia, draws inspiration from her high school drill team. May specifically wanted to pay tribute to the team coach who played a pivotable role in establishing the importance of self-expression, community and leadership.
Collegiate color scheme: The Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Zoom Califia gets a two-tone color scheme that mirrors the drill team’s uniform. The use of green satin-like materials in the recessed Swoosh further deepens the connection. Hits of cream on the tongue, midsole and fuzzy Jumpman emblem complete its design.
