After taking a look at this pair, readers may be wondering why he does not work for Jordan Brand. No doubt, as far as the beautiful Air Jordan I “Independence Day” Custom sneaker is concerned, which was created to be worn on the 4th of July, King Poetic really surpassed himself onto a whole new level. Of course, Jordanheads need not check their calendar for 23isback release dates since this is a one of one pair.
Considering that the 4th of July is celebrated as the Independence Day in the United States, it is not surprising that King Poetic borrowed the stripes and stars from the American flag to be featured on the very first sneaker model that was released by Jordan Brand. King Poetic is quite the sneaker collector and enthusiast, so in celebration of 4th of July, he decided that he would wear a special Air Jordan 1 pair, and really outdid himself with his effort.
Savvy Jordanheads who have taken a look at these new jordans will recognize that the “Family Forever” release of the Air Jordan I has been used by King Poetic as the base. The upper has been craftily designed to appear weather-beaten and worn out, so much so that it reminds of the “Lance Mountain” colorway of Jordan I that was released last month. From the ground up, a light blue sole can be seen, followed by a white midsole with a complex denim upper sporting a painted rustic appearance, an eye-catching feature, and blue stars at the side of the toe box. The red laces that link add the final touch, giving this pair the colors of the American flag, and an overall American feel.
23isBack readers are probably feeling quite jealous of King Poetic that he got to wear his own creation. While this pair may not have a spot among this year’s Jordan release 2014, loyal Jordanheads can still be hopeful that their favorite sneaker brand will do something similar in the near future.
