Air Jordan are going through their emo phase this season as they unveil their latest drop for Fall/Winter 2023, the Air Jordan 1 Brooklyn. Adding a chunky platform sole to the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette, the latest drop could give goth’s beloved Dr. Martens a run for their money.
Dressed in triple black leather, the Air Jordan 1 Brooklyn is quite hard to ignore, starting with its extra massive rugged sole finished with tread-like detailing. After fixating on the insane lift, the eyes then move up the boot’s extended leathery upper, now offering 12 extra lace holes for the new elongated look. Who knew the Jordan 1 High could go, well, higher?
Kind of like a mash-up of Dr. Martens and the Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 1 Brooklyn platform boot rounds off with traditional Nike and Jordan branding with a dash of RAWR XD and Monster Energy flair.
This isn’t the first time Jordan have dipped their toes in the boot game. Who could forget the 2010s Jordan Future, the Jordan 9 Retro boots, and, of course, Nike’s Winterized takes? But the Brooklyn is undoubtedly the biggest and boldest of them all, and it’s expected to make a big step into the shoe game in January 2024.
