Anna Wintour & ‘Vogue’ Give Nike’s Air Jordan 1’s and 3’s the AWOK Treatment.
On Thursday morning, Vogue announced an exciting collaboration with Nike’s Jordan Brand inspired by none other than Anna Wintour.
The famous editor-in-chief is the muse for two new styles of Air Jordans, including the Air Jordan I, which Wintour wears in the video teaser above. The classic sneaker — renamed AJI High Zip AWOK — features a few stylish details, like a circle-pull metal zipper that reveals a crimson red tongue, and comes in two colorways: University Red and an off-white hue called Sail. The AJI High Zip AWOK will drop on Saturday, July 21 at select retailers (Nordstrom x Nike, Kith and Hirshleifers) and Jumpman store locations (Toronto and Chicago), as well as on the Nike SNKRS app on July 22.
The Air Jordan III SE gets the Wintour treatment in the form of sparkly black or red tweed (an homage to her favorite Chanel suits-and-sunglasses look) and will be available on Friday, Sept. 7 — just in time for New York Fashion Week. Both sneakers feature Wintour’s “AWOK” signature on the sneakers’ bottom soles and a red “Edited by Vogue” air tag.
