The first collaboration between Union and Air Jordan took place in 2018 when they released the highly acclaimed Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Union Los Angeles" pack. This collaboration reimagined the classic Air Jordan 1 silhouette, incorporating vintage-inspired details and a two-tone color scheme. The sneakers featured a mix of materials, including premium leather and suede, with stitched panels, exposed foam tongues, and vintage-style branding. The collaboration was an instant hit and quickly sold out, becoming one of the most sought-after releases of the year.
Following the success of the Air Jordan 1 collaboration, Union and Air Jordan joined forces again in 2020 to release the Air Jordan 4 Retro "Union Off Noir" pack. This time, Union brought their signature vintage aesthetic to the iconic Air Jordan 4 silhouette. The sneakers featured a mix of materials, including mesh, suede, and synthetic materials, with striking color blocking and deconstructed elements. The collaboration garnered significant attention and further solidified Union's reputation for innovative sneaker designs.
Now, as we look ahead to the future, Union and Air Jordan have recently announced their upcoming collaboration on the Air Jordan 1 Woven Union. This collaboration takes a new approach by incorporating woven elements into the design, adding a unique texture and visual appeal to the iconic silhouette.
The Air Jordan 1 Woven Union is expected to feature a mix of premium materials, including woven fabric, leather overlays, and classic Air Jordan branding. Sneaker enthusiasts and Union fans alike are eagerly anticipating the release of this collaboration, which is expected to continue the tradition of pushing boundaries and reimagining sneaker design.
