UPDATE: Dior x Nike's Air Jordan 1 High Launch Has Been Postponed
In light of global health concerns.
UPDATE (March 17, 2020): In response to global concerns surrounding the outbreak of novel coronavirus, Dior and Nike have decided to postpone the launch of their collaborative Air Jordan 1 High. The buzzy silhouette was scheduled to release through a draw system at the end of March.
The international draw was also set to include exclusive access to a number of global Dior pop-up locations, whose openings have also postponed. An official statement released by Dior reads, “A new date for the Air Dior launch and for the pop-ups dedicated to this unique collaboration will be announced in function of how this situation evolves.”
Stay tuned for further updates from Dior and Nike.
ORIGINAL STORY (March 9, 2020): While we took a closer look at the highly anticipated Dior x Nike Air Jordan 1 High sneaker back in December, additional imagery of the shoe has emerged, revealing that it will be limited to 8,500 pairs only. The shoe will additionally see a release through a potential draw system towards the end of this month.
Sneaker insider Jean Carlos, otherwise known by his handle @solebyjc, took to Instagram Stories over the weekend to share a new look at the sneaker, which he’s already copped. The inside of the ankle shows a number patch that reads “2058/8500,” suggesting that each pair will be individually numbered up to 8,500. A source has confirmed with HYPEBEAST that this information is accurate, but no details on the Low silhouette have been revealed just yet.
According to a leaked image found on Sneaker News, those willing to cop the upcoming Dior and Nike collaboration can expect the shoe to roll out through a lottery-like draw system, which runs from March 23 to 24 with the winner announcement being made via email on March 26.
Stay tuned as more information on the coveted collaboration surfaces. If you can’t wait for the drop, try getting your hands on the Nike Air Jordan 1 High Zoom in “Racer Blue.”
