Air Jordan has officially announced a long-rumored collaboration with Billie Eilish working off of an Air Jordan 1 KO (style code DN2857-330) and Air Jordan 15 sneaker (DN2863-200) silhouette. Both shoes are described as vegan and make use of 20-percent recycled material. While the Air Jordan 1 KO has been offered in canvas, the Retro 15 is normal
In a June 2021 interview with British Vogue, Eilish said she has been a vegan for seven years, a decision she made when she uncovered the meat industry’s inhumane treatment of animals.
Eilish took to Instagram to announce the news where she wrote, “i am SO excited to finally share my two air jordan silhouettes with you!! i’ve always loved @jumpman23 🥰 and it was such an incredible and surreal experience getting to create these, especially in a sustainable fashion (100% vegan with over 20% recycled material).
Reflecting Eilish’s young audience, news of the release was limited to “Behind the Design,” a news platform located on Nike’s SNKRS app.
In a visual on the app, Eilish descrbed the Retro 15 as a longtime favorite Jordan silhouette: “I begged for the 15s in the black with the little red. And when I got them, I look at them as this they were a million dollars, sitting right in front of me.”
Both shoes will launch on September 27, 2021 on store.billieeilish.com and on September 30th on the SNKRS app.
