Jordan Brand‘s AJ V.1 Chukka is two steps removed from its primary inspiration, the venerable Air Jordan 1. This refashioned chukka takes the vulcanized Air Jordan V.1 and gives it a mid-cut silhouette, using leather and suede across the virtually seamless upper. Perforations along the side are good for ventilation at the same time they shape the Nike Swoosh branding, while the elephant print outsole gives the nod to the shoe’s Air Jordan lineage. The AJ V.1 Chukka is slated to drop in two understated colorways for November: Utility Blue/Obsidian – White and Stealth/Black – White.
