After delays due to Covid-19, the AirDior collection is finally ready to drop. Dior has confirmed that the sneakers will drop in Singapore, though no firm date has been given. The sneakers will be released through an “exclusive online experience”, where qualified participants can purchase the sneaker on a first-come-first-served basis.
In the US, four Dior stores – Beverly Hills Rodeo, Miami Design District, New York Soho, and New York 57th Street – will carry the apparel and accessories from the collection on July 8.
After first hinting at a collab in November, Nike and Dior have finally unveiled the product of their partnership – the luxurious, Italian-made Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior. The sneaker commemorates the United States debut of Dior’s first men’s collection, and fuses the timeless design of the Air Jordan 1 with Dior’s signature style.
Dubbed “the most luxurious Air Jordan 1 ever” by Travis Scott, the uppers of the Air Jordan 1 are made entirely of fine Italian calf leather in a mix of white and pearl-grey hues. The standout piece, the Nike swoosh, receives the full Dior treatment with the luxury brand’s signature oblique monogrammed fabric.
Sticking to the #AirDior theme, the signature Air Jordan emblems all over the sneaker have been replaced with a custom logo for this collaboration. This includes a custom AirDior wing logo at the ankles, tongue tags, and insoles. Turn the sneakers over and you’ll see, through the transparent outsoles, the Dior logo on one midsole and the Air Dior wing logo on the other.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior drops globally in April 2020, at select Dior stores. Stay tuned for more updates on the drop.
