The Air Jordan 1 Nouveau collection was created as a premium line of Air Jordan 1 models. A few years back Jordan Brand released several different versions of the Air Jordan 1 Mid constructed out of premium suede and leather materials. There’s no doubt that the shoes were made better than what we’re used to seeing on the Air Jordan 1 models, but being that they came in an Air Jordan 1 Mid opposed to the Air Jordan 1 High, a lor of people ended up sleeping on the. Now Jordan Brand has decided to put the Nouveau treatment on the Air Jordan 1 High. Today we take a look at the Air Jordan 1 High Nouveau Snakeskin.
Right off the bat, the first thing that you notice is that the shoe does not come in a premium suede or leather construction, instead it opts to come in an all-black faux snakeskin upper to give the shoe the luxe effect. The cut-out Nike Swoosh on the side panels reveal a mesh underlay. Offsetting the all-black look are the red accents on the Wings branding, lining and outsole. Lastly, a white midsole cleans up the shoe a bit. Stay tuned to find out when Jordan Brand decides to drop these.
Although I don’t have any Nouveau Jordan 1s, I appreciate the premium look and feel of it. But in my opinion, I’d rather have a premium suede or leather instead of a faux-snakeskin upper.
