Aleali May‘s latest sneaker colorway, designed in collaboration with Jordan Brand, will be among next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Instead of playing with Barbies, Aleali May was more interested in Air Jordan sneakers when growing up during in early ‘90s in South Central Los Angeles. She was in elementary school when she was introduced to sneaker culture after receiving an Air Jordan 12 from her uncle. As a designer, influencer, model and stylist, she is credited for ushering the age of women’s exclusive sneakers. This year, Aleali also became the first female to collaborate with Jordan Brand and design her own colorway of the iconic Air Jordan 1.
Aleali May’s Previous & Upcoming Air Jordan Releases
Last year, Aleali May collaborated with Jordan Brand to design a “Satin/Corduroy” colorway of the Air Jordan 1. The Aleali May X Air Jordan 1 High made its retail debut on October 28th, 2017 at a price of $160. Back in 2016, sneakerheads were also given a look at her Air Jordan 1 Retro High WMNS “Viotech,” which gets its nickname from a Nike Dunk Low colorway. Initially believed to a 1-of-1 pair, it will actually be among December’s Air Jordan releases 2018. The Air Jordan 6 colorway featured here was also first unveiled by Aleali herself back in June and was later revealed to be a friends-and-family exclusive.
Aleali May x Air Jordan 6 “Millennial Pink” Will Retail In Spring 2019
It must be obvious by that Aleali May designed the Air Jordan 6 “Millennial Pink” being discussed in this post. This colorway is also referred to as “Rush Pink” after the hue that covers its entire uppers and most of its midsoles. A Bright Crimson hue appears over its heel loop, midsoles, the little “Jumpman” on its lace locks, and the “Nike Air” branding on its heels. This Air Jordan 6 is also equipped with milky, translucent outsoles as well. Even though Aleali May previously admitted that only her family and friends would be receiving this, you will actually be able to cop a pair or more next year.
