After getting first dibs on the "Gold Top 3" Air Jordan 1 at ComplexCon 2017, it looks like Los Angeles streetwear OG Union is taking things a step further with a full-on collaboration expected to drop in the near future.
A leaked image of the sneaker shows a "Black Toe"-esque colorway with a number of unique details such as raw leather edges, Off-White-like contrast stitching and branded orange tabs, and shoelaces which alternate from black to cream at the sixth eyelet. The overall look is decidedly vintage-inspired, and there's a clear nod to the Air Jordan 1's legacy as well.
Release details on this pair have not been announced, but it's expected to drop soon.
UPDATE (10/18): After getting a look at one colorway from the upcoming Union Los Angeles x Air Jordan 1 collaboration, another OG-inspired pair has surfaced. This time, the upper fuses the "Storm Blue" and "Bred" colorways. Like the first pair, both color schemes are fused at the ankle with yellow contrast stitching, feature a yellow Union branding tag, and transition from cream to black laces at the sixth eyelet.
UPDATE (10/23): Following multiple teaser images, Union Los Angeles has officially teased its upcoming Air Jordan collaboration. In the spirit of the vintage-inspired collection, the Los Angeles-based shop set up a fake booth at the Rose Bowl flea market with hidden cameras to get people's reactions to both pairs. They were even called out by Round Two's Sean Wotherspoon for selling fake product. Release information is still up in the air, but more information will be provided in the future here.
