Dior x Air Jordan 1 sneakers

Hit the gym in these stylish limited-edition sneakers which are a new take on classic sports styles. First revealed at the Dior Men's Pre-Fall 2020 show last December, it will be released in April, together with a full line of athleisure clothing and accessories.

It's fastest fingers first for those looking to get their hands on the rare low-tops as only 4,700 pairs will be available—the number was decided in homage to Christian Dior's launch of the brand's new look in 1947. In addition to that, only 8,500 high-tops will be available in the market, a number that was also decided based on the Jordan 1 release back in 1985.
