The Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 High "Sail" was, no doubt, one of the most iconic sneakers of 2018. Made in collaboration with the American BMX athlete, this was the first Jordan 1 of its kind. While the Queens native officially signed with Jordan Brand back in September 2021, we have yet to see a sequel to his legendary first pair. Well, until now, that is.
The aptly-named Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 High "Black" was first spotted on Sylvester earlier this week, but now, we're getting our best look yet thanks to these crisp shots from Ashley Walters. Offered in a slick black leather, a contrast white Swoosh shoots across the side panels and toe, and underneath the Nike Air midsole, you'll find a striking red outsole. Just like the prequel, the upper of this has been pre-scuffed for a worn-in aesthetic. You'll also find yellow detailing to give the sneaker a vintage vibe.
While this all looks well and good, unfortunately, our sources tell us that the Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 High "Black" is a gift straight from Jordan Brand to celebrate the launch of the BMX icon's book, Nigel Sylvester: GO. However, if these do manage to get a public release, you'll find out here first. While you're here, you might as well check out all the Air Jordan 1s that we have available!
