The Jordan Air Ship, a classic basketball sneaker donned by Michael Jordan before the famed Air Jordan 1, has staged a remarkable comeback. In a captivating collaboration, it intertwines with the Japanese retailer Forget-me-nots.
Dubbed the Forget-me-nots x Jordan Air Ship “From Bud To Flower,” this exclusive women’s release reveres the forget-me-not flower’s intriguing transformation. This delicate blossom begins as a modest white bud and matures into a vivid blue or purple bloom. The shoe mirrors this evolution with its pristine white leather upper, elegantly counterpoised by a subdued grey suede Swoosh. The azure Nike Air branding on the heel tab and the rubber outsole beautifully mirror the hues of the forget-me-not flower.
Adding a daring flair to the design is the jagged-edge leather collar. However, the shoe’s potential tearaway layers remain unconfirmed, as they may harbor the enigmatic “rush fuchsia” – a shade concealed in teaser images.
Mark your calendars for September 27th, as the Forget-me-nots x Jordan Air Ship “From Bud To Flower” blossoms into availability. You can exclusively snag a pair from Forget-me-nots and a select few NBHD retailers, both online and in-store. The price tag for this floral-inspired beauty is a wallet-friendly $150 USD. Embrace the journey of the forget-me-not and walk the path of elegance with this resurgent classic.
