Nike has been in somewhat of a frenzy as of lately, in terms of the SneakerBoots that it has been releasing this winter season. Many 23 is Back readers may have already copped several of the recent Air Maxes, Revaderchis, Roshes and Trainer SCs, while Nike has also updated many renowned Sportswear silhouettes to make them suitable for the fall/winter season. Now, Jordan Brand is following suit by transforming the Air Jordan 1 into a SneakerBoot too, although no official 2014 or 2015 Jordan release dates have been announced yet.
Considering that winter is here, sneaker heads definitely want to have the right footwear and nothing would be as perfect for them as winterized versions of their favorite sneakers. Perhaps this is what has led to the widespread of SneakerBoots, which are sneakers modified to be beefier and water-resistant. No wonder sneaker brands have been taking advantage of this opportunity to winter-proofed iterations of their most coveted retro sneaker models.
Nike was the first of such brands to take this approach with its Nike ACG line, which includes plenty of sought-after Mowabbs and Superdomes. 23isBack and other sneaker heads have actually wanted such SneakerBoots for long. Hence, it did not take long for Jordan Brand also made the sensible decision to take a step aside from the basketball, court, and running sneakers to try something new. On November 21, Chris Paul posted a picture on his Instagram account in which he can be seen wearing a winterized iteration of the Air Jordan 1, which is apparently Jordan Brand’s first SneakerBoot.
The entire upper of this new jordans is made up of caramel leather, and some very eye-catching details adorn the rest of this pair. For instance, the aglets, eyelets and Jumpan lacelocks are all metallic, while the tongue features the “Nike Air” tab, and a gum bottom outsole adds the finish touch. For now, all that 23 is Back readers can do is be envious of Chris Paul for having this Air Jordan 1 Sneakerboot on his feet. There is currently no news of any potential 2014 or 2015 Jordan release dates.
