Last year, Aleali May became the second woman to collaborate with Jordan Brand. For those who are not familiar with her, she happens to be a 26-year-old celebrity image consultant, fashion consultant and stylist, having worked with artists like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. Vashtie Kola, an artist, creative consultant, designer, DJ, filmmaker and music video director, was the first woman to collaborate with Jordan Brand. She co-designed the Air Jordan 2 “Lavender” back in 2010. Unlike Vashtie’s Air Jordan 2, the sneaker that Aleali co-designed became available in both men’s and kid’s size. Apparently, the Air Jordan 6 she received last year might also arrive at retailers.
The sneaker that Aleali May co-designed with Jordan Brand was the Air Jordan 1 High “Satin Shadows,” which was released worldwide, but only in limited numbers and at certain, select retailers. Its uppers consisted of several different. Primarily, Aleali drew inspiration from house slippers worn by her father and uncle, so she used corduroy for the Black-colored overlays. The glossy Grey-colored collar, heel and toe areas are made up of satin, while the Nike “Swoosh” logos are covered in chenille fabric, inspired by vintage sportswear jackets. The Air Jordan 1 High “Satin Shadows” made its retail debut on October 28th, 2017.
Back in September 2017, Aleali shared a photo of the Air Jordan 6 “Millennial Pink” on her Instagram profile (@alealimay). She recently shared a new on-foot photos of the sneaker. As you may recall and can see in the photo, it happens to be a tonal iteration, with its uppers and most of its midsoles dressed up in a soft Pink hue. A different shade of Pink appears over the laces and Infrared-colored accents can be spotted as well. This colorway was originally revealed to be exclusively for family and friends, but Aleali May seems to be hinting at the possibility that the sneaker might eventually arrive at retailer.
