We have written several times in the past year about the “deconstructed” trend. This means that parts of a shoe or garment are made together in such a way that it seems as if it is still “work in progress”. We see more and more designs like this at Off-White, sacai and the major brands themselves. Nike opts for a variation of this trend to give the new Air Jordan 5 UK Anthracite something special.
The Air Jordan shoe is in fact “re-constructed”. What does that mean? You can still find the recognizable elements of the shoe, but have been used in a different way. Where first the top of the tongue was reflective, these are now the side panels and the bottom of the tongue. Of course, the shapes of this model remain the same. Different shades of gray, white and black are alternated and finished with a semi-transparent sole. The kicks are expected to be released on February 24th at select retailers and Jordanukshop.com.
