The Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior retains the silhouette we all know and love, but with Dior’s design cues that elevate the courtside sneaker to haute couture footwear.

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.
