The Nike Air Jordan 1 "Aleali May" Lookbook Will Melt Your Heart

Aleali heads home to shoot the shoe alongside her family.

We previously got a look at Aleali May‘s autonomous Nike Air Jordan 1 “Aleali May” shoes that dropped earlier this week, and now we’re taking a look at the accompanying lookbook. Shot by Estevan Oriol in Aleali’s hometown South Central, Los Angeles, the images focus on the inspiration behind the shoe: family. May talks about the early influence from her “Uncle G” during her childhood, leading to her discovering the Air Jordans and wearing them as a part of her daily uniform. The new “Aleali May” shoe is an homage to her beginnings, and the lookbook emphasizes the influences that lead to the creation of the sneaker.

Peep the lookbook in the gallery above, and see the full ”Satin Shorts + Slippers: The Aleali May AJ 1” feature over at Air Jordan. Don’t miss Aleali’s “Shadow Queen” sock collaboration with Stance.
