Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Comfort “Bayou Boys” has surfaced, offering a new take on the classic silhouette. Jordan Brand’s Zion Williamson and the bayous of New Orleans serve as the inspiration behind the sneakers.
The “Bayou Boys” feature a mixture of materials, textures and tones with grey and black textiles for the quarter panels. The panels are complimented by a cut-out black suede Swoosh with more black suede found at the toebox and collar.
One can’t help but notice the croc-printed leather on the mudguards, collar flap areas, eyestays and heel pieces in a “New Orchid” colorway. The exposed foam seems to have a Virgil Abloh influence as the frequent Nike collaborator has made the style famous on a few of its silhouettes. Rounding out the details is the “Bayou Boys” script on the inside of the tongue and insoles along with Zoom technology.
The Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Comfort “Bayou Boys” can be purchased now at Nike China for ¥1,199 or $180 USD.
