Air Jordan 1 "Election Day"


The practice of breaking down the national map among party lines originated in the 2000 U.S. presidential election, when TV analysts began referring to red states and blue states as a way of depicting which political party carried each of the fifty states. A paradigm that some argue as promoting partisanship in the national discourse, the red state-blue state color coding has been co-opted by Jordan Brand to effectively reach across the aisles, producing an Air Jordan 1 featuring both hues in the makeup. Details include tonal elephant print across the red panels at the upper, obsidian nubuck at the toe and quarter panels, plus a white leather Swoosh. Blue and red sockliners -- the former printed with the Democratic donkey, the latter featuring the G.O.P. elephant --  finish the look. Cast your ballot on November 6th, then grab the Air Jordan 1 "Election Day" just four days later when the kicks drop at select Jordan Brand retailers.
