After months and months of rumors and speculation, Jordan Brand officially unveils the highly anticipated J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High Colores Y Vibras.

Designed in conjunction with the renowned Colombian reggaeton artist, it’s reflective of J Balvin’s eccentric aesthetic. Colorful tie-dye finishes drape the layered canvas uppers with jagged edges on the toe box. Oher details include exposed foam tongues, removable patches including Balvin’s Happy Face logo and the iconic Jumpman which can be placed on the heels and tongues. Finally, crisp white rubber soles top off the profile. The J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 will be a special collaboration for the simple fact that it will mark the first time that a Latino artist collaborates with Jordan Brand.

Jordan Brand also had this to say about the forthcoming release:

Breaking barriers through music and self-expression, Colombian J Balvin delivers a special iteration of the Air Jordan I that’s direct from Medellín and meant for the whole world. In design, he brings intense “colores” and “vibras” (Spanish for “colors” and “vibes” — and the names of Balvin’s acclaimed 2020 and 2018 albums) to his Air Jordan 1 x J Balvin.

“I was thinking about how I could have a disruptive Air Jordan 1,” says Balvin, the first Latino artist to collaborate with Jordan Brand. “I wanted to be the person who really dared to change the shapes and go all out. No one has touched the Air Jordan 1 like this before.”

The Air Jordan 1 x J Balvin’s bold rainbow canvas upper has jagged-edge trimming and rounded-color wings that are meant to represent a cloud-like explosion — symbolizing Balvin’s source of energy. The artist’s smiley-face logo replaces the Jumpman logo on the left foot tongue tag, while pink, white and black laces and interchangeable patches (think a smiley face, a Jumpman, a basketball and lightning bolt) enable wearers to customize the shoe based off their mood and creative expression.

Jordan Brand has officially announced that the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High Colores Y Vibras will be set to release on December 8th at select premium retailers and SNKRS for the retail price of $190.
