Sneaker Focus: Air Jordan 1 High All Star "Black Hornet"

All-Stars weekend is upon us so get the popcorn ready and some energy drinks with you as its going to be a late night, with the high flying Slam Dunk competition taking place, as well as the All-Stars game between East Vs West conference. 

With the recent release of the Air Jordan 6 'Black Hornet' it's no surprise that the Air Jordan 1's would make an appearance for the All-Star weekend which takes place in New Orleans this weekend. With Michael Jordan making 13 appearances for this event over the course of his career and earning three MVP's as well as winning the Slam Dunk event and obtaining his triumphant three-point throw dunk which shows that his Airness truly is the GOAT.

The 1's are arguably the best out of all the Jordan releases, with its versatile style and minimal structure allowing it to match with an array of outfits and its archive of colourways, both minimal and vibrant, making them without a doubt one of the most iconic sneakers to date.

This colourway finds a perfect blend of vibrant and minimal elements and merges the two aesthetics together without clashing as the sidewalls rock a clean white panelling with black accents on the swoosh and edging, with the vibrant iridescent toebox and heel bringing some eccentric vibes to the sneak. Finished off perfectly with a translucent sole that further reflects the eccentric colourful nature of these Jordans.

The iridescent colours may have been chosen as a throw towards both Jordan's North Carolina uniform with the light blue accents as well as reflecting the colours and the plastic-y sheen of Mardi Gras beads which is a highly celebrated festival in the heart of New Orleans which is where the All-Star weekend is taking place.

If you are an avid fan of Jordan's then you'll definitely appreciate how clean looking this colourway is and how much they stand out.

Releasing in-store tomorrow at 10:00 am GMT 18/2/17 with remaining pairs available to purchase online on Sunday 08:00 am GMT 19/2/17.
