While many were fixated on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris today as they were sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States, something else caused a stir on social media during the inauguration. Someone was spotted wearing a pair of Dior Air Jordan 1s to the event, and it took a short while for the mysterious individual to be identified.
With a little help from Bobby Kim aka Bobby Hundreds, we learned that the man with the inauguration drip was Nikolas Ajagu, the husband of Meena Harris, Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece.
Ajagu was first captured coming down the steps of the Capitol while Amy Klobuchar was speaking at the inauguration. Shortly thereafter, a photo of his feet in the Dior 1s began to circulate on social media. Bobby Hundreds tweeted Meena Harris to ask if it was in fact her husband wearing the highly coveted collaboration, to which she simply replied: “Yes smh.”
While some will shame Ajagu for wearing sneakers to such a formal gathering, we have to remind you that the Dior Air Jordan 1s originally sold for $2,200 and are now going for thousands more on the resale market. Ajagu, who is the head of global partnerships at Facebook, paired the 1s with a suit and tie, as shown in the image above.
Ajagu wasn’t the only one donning fresh kicks on Inauguration Day, however. Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Maisy Biden, showed up in the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Sisterhood.”
