Jordan Brand is making moves this year. While the return to more limited Jordan releases has brought plenty of attention to the brand their next move may be even more monumental. Check out the Jordan 1 that’s helping the brand leap into the world of soccer.
Jordan Brand is making the jump into the world of Soccer. For the past two years, several Air Jordan PEs have released, tied to European football legends. Neymar, Ronaldo, and others have placed their signature touch on Jordan’s in recent memory. Any keen member of the public was quick to conclude that Jordan is up to something, and in a big way. This month, we finally found out why. After leaked images of team Jordan’s featuring Paris Saint-Germain logos, a rumor surfaced online that the French football club would sign a jersey deal with Jordan Brand for the coming season. The brand has secure plenty of uniform contracts over the year’s but this one is very special. Not only does it mean that Jordan is looking to expand their product offerings, but more athletes are likely going to sign contracts with the brand now as well.
Earlier this year, a leaked Air Jordan 5 revealed the new collaboration between Jordan and PSG. Both pairs feature similar materials and colors, with the 1 taking on a slightly more simple look and feel. The entire upper on this Air Jordan 1 appears to be made from soft nubuck or another smooth leather. Next, the signature Swoosh and Air Jordan Wings logo are cut from rough tumbled leather to add a slight sheen to the matte upper. Finally, the Air Jordan 1 “PSG” is completed by subtle Paris Saint-Germain branding on the tongue and insole, as well as the club’s colors in small stripes on the midsole.
