This latest Jordan 1 has the swoosh ripped off.
It's common knowledge amongst sneakerheads at this point that the Air Jordan 1 is one of if not the most iconic Jordan Brand silhouette of all time. Every single year, new colorways of the shoe are released to the market and fans are always excited to cop the fresh heat. New Jordan 1 colorways have been teased all throughout 2019, with one of them being the "Defiant" model.
This is one of the weirder colorways to be teased so far. Not because of the colors, but because of the fact that the Nike swoosh is completely ripped off the outside of the shoe. For instance, plush white leather makes up the toe box and side panels while black is found on the overlays. From there, the inside of the sneaker has a fully intact yellow swoosh and the outside is simply some frayed red stitching that outlines a swoosh that should have been there. Thanks to some images from @hanzuying, we now know what these kicks will look like on feet.
According to the above post, these shoes will be released sometime in July for $175 USD. Stay tuned for further updates regarding this release.
