With Shop Jordans 2022, The name Swarovski alone conjures a wealth of applause — especially whenever sneakers are involved. And following a brief departure to adidas, the jewelry purveyor is back in Nike’s arms, joining hands for two eccentric takes on the Air Force 1.Even at a glance one can see these are worlds apart from the collaborations previous. Gone entirely are the crystals, herein replaced by metallic silver studs.Unlike the duo’s previous Air Max 97 release, the Swarovski crystals aren’t applied directly to the shoe but appear on the upper’s intricate overlay panels, which can be removed with an accompanying screwdriver.
The Swarovski x Nike Air Force 1 Low is presented in two tonal white and black color schemes starting with the premium leather upper and continuing onto the midsole and outsole. It’s worth noting that there’s no Swarovski-specific branding on either of the pairs to cement the connection.And while lacking the same glimmer, the hardware makes up for it with frequency, embedding into the malleable, removable shroud many a time. The latter also comes in multiples, individually wrapping the instep, toe, Swoosh, and heel in a color that matches the leather base underneath.
The Levi's x Air Jordan 11 Denim is one anticipated collaboration that gave the sneaker world an all Levi’s denim upper. It’s been filled with heavy detailing, including a red Levi’s flag, copper aglets, and a unique collaborative branding added with the Jumpman logo, resembling the Red Tab branding of the jeans brand.This Air Jordan 11 comes constructed in a premium Levi’s Denim upper paired with its signature stitching and Red Levi’s label. A clean White midsole and OG-styled translucent outsole completes the design.
