The Shoe Surgeon has revealed a custom Air Jordan 1 sneaker, designed as a tribute to Virgil Abloh‘s capsule of Louis Vuitton and Nike Air Force 1 sneakers featured in the label’s spring 2022 collection. Dubbed the J1 High and Low Legacy, the shoe is crafted from authentic Louis Vuitton Damier and logo bags while a raw edge underlay echoes the original design’s piping detail. Paired with a leather orange luggage tag, gold foil logos peek on the lateral side and heel adding depth and dimension.
Repurposing the symbolic pattern, each panel was precisely hand cut and crafted from authentic Louis Vuitton bags. A raw edge underlay echoes the original design’s piping detail. Paired with a leather orange and white luggage tag, gold foil logos peek on the lateral side and heel adding depth and dimension to this staple.
A percentage of the proceeds of the shoes sold will benefit Virgil Abloh’s Post-Modern Scholarship Fund.
Available in sizes 5.5-17, the Low and High are priced at $7,500 and $10,000 respectively and are available to purchase at thesurgeon.com. The cost includes a sourcing fee for the shoe’s base. You can source your own soles to be used for the customization service at a lower cost.
