When it comes to collaborations, the Jordan 1 has been the shoe to secure this year, and the AJ1 train is not showing any signs of slowing down. After a long time of teasers and speculation — coming to a head when J Balvin wore a pair for his halftime performance with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira at Super Bowl LIV — the Nike Jordan 1 J Balvin will drop on December 8, and you can bag the pair at StockX.
In a recent interview with Highsnobiety, J Balvin clarified why his collaboration — the first official collaboration by a Latino — kept fans waiting patiently: “Because of the coronavirus, they closed all the factories and stuff like that,” he said, “but it’s going to happen maybe around November.” Well, he was a month early on that, but the rainbow-colored Jordan 1 J Balvin is booked in for December 8. With jagged edges demarcating each panel of the layered canvas upper, making way for flashes of a soft leather collar and exposed foam to the tongue this pair goes loud and proud, much like its designer.
The Jordan 1 J Balvin may well be the last in 2020’s memorable Jordan 1 saga, and your last opportunity to secure a high-profile collar before the year is out. While most of the other Jordan collaborations we’ve seen this year opt for a pared-back colorway to emphasize the retro silhouette, this one takes a very different tack. With such a vivid color palette, Jordan 1 J Balvin will be one to remember. StockX market data details a high selling point of $5000 and an average sale price of $837, so ready up to cop your certified-authentic pair at StockX now.
