Throughout this week, we’ve been seeing information and photos of what we assumed to be a “Satin Shadow” Air Jordan 1. And now, we have confirmed information on this uniquely built sneaker which is actually an Air Jordan collaboration with stylist Aleali May.

We already knew that this sneaker featured several different materials but May took to her Instagram to let us know the inspiration behind all of this:

“Growing up in South Central, LA and receiving Jordan’s from Uncle G, a young Aleali would’ve thought having her own shoe was impossible.
One of the many things I’ve taken away from Michael Jordan is that he made the impossible, possible. This collaboration with @jumpman23 is dedicated to my city, Los Angeles.

•AJ1 “Shadow” as the foundation
•Corduroy from my dads house slippers he purchased at the Slauson Swapmeet
•Chenille, Satin and the Orange tab from the Kings/Raiders Starter Jackets”

The “Aleali May” Air Jordan 1 will release in Los Angeles on October 27th and will release globally on October 28th. Of course, with a collab of this caliber, the numbers on these will be limited but they will be available for both adult and gradeschool sizes. Check out more photos below and be sure to keep up with Da Jay Way for future Air Jordan news.
