The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Defiant (Couture) is another brand new rendition of the iconic silhouette, and it’s inspired by the craftsmanship of luxury Italian sports cars. According to Nike, “Couture” celebrates the fashion community and the bold racing stripe pulls inspiration from the famed “Banned” AJ 1 colorway. Covered in a classic combo of Black and Gym Red with Muslin, the sneaker’s black leather upper is detailed with a red Banned-like bar that covers the Swoosh logos and across the heels. Finally, black and red Nike Air tongue labels, the wings on the upper ankles and a Muslin-colored rubber sole tops off the style.
Update: (2/17) Nike releases official images and confirms February 23 release date.
