The chatter around these Union Los Angeles x Jordan was non-stop this year. Release has come and gone twice for these storm blue masterpieces. Mine came from the original drop on November 17th. Craftsmanship is top-notch, and is accompanied in a shoebox featuring picturesque pieces of Michael Jordan & Nike imagery you might recognize from over the years.
Will I wear these? Probably not. Are they my favorite shoes to release this year? Mmm one of them. The thrill of acquiring these on my own was probably the the biggest payoff of the year, even more than getting Supreme’s CDG AF1 collaboration in a restock last month as well. In a string of weeks/months revolving around adidas Yeezy’s and Dragon Ball Z shoes, the Union Js deliver exactly what you expect - a timeless classic.
