Billie Eilish fans are Happier than ever: A collaboration between the artist and Jordan Brand is preparing, new photos confirm it. While a leak in June revealed that a neon green Air Jordan 1 KO has been released, a more subtle Air Jordan 15 appears to be falling alongside it.
Eilish has long shown his affinity for retro Jordans, often wearing Air Jordan 1s and praising Nike and Jordan Brand. Perhaps the music industry’s most loyal fan of brands – aside from hypebeasts Travis Scott and Drake – Eilish first teased rumors of a partnership when she appeared on an episode of Resort sneaker shopping in 2019. By Highsnobiety, Jordan Brand, vice president of Footwear Gentry Humphrey, also commented on a potential collaboration in the past, saying, “You see us doing things with people like Aleali May, you see us, we are going to do things with people like Billie Eilish. “
Opposites attract – Now, two years after the rumors started, we’re taking a look at the two-shoe collaboration. The literal highlight of the capsule – a luminescent Air Jordan 1 KO – is fully dressed in Eilish’s favorite color, neon green. The Nike Swoosh and Jordan Brand Jumpman adorn the sneaker alongside the artist’s stick-shaped Blohsh logo on the tongue, while additional padding, an embossed Jordan Wings logo and seam lines on the sides offer a quilted look.
The sneaker’s monochrome color scheme is comparable to that of Don C’s Jordan Legacy 312 âGhost Greenâ, which Eilish labels in the Complex episode as one of her favorite pairs. She also mentions how much she loves the Air Jordan 15 “more than any other shoe in the world,” claiming in the clip that despite people hating the model – and Tinker Hatfield identifies the sneaker as her worst Air Jordan design – it’s his favorite.
While the masses may not be on board with the AJ15, Eilish is clearly in love enough to include the figure in her Jordan Brand collaboration. Its monochrome design is simple and subtle, using a beige tint to showcase the 15’s construction. A rubberized heel marked “23 – 6 – 15” is reminiscent of Michael Jordan’s jersey number, the NBA Championships and the 15th. model, paying homage to the sneaker and its history. The Bloshsh Eilish logo only appears on the front part of the collar, while the insoles no longer read “Air Jordan” but “Billie Eilish”, making it clear which shoes you are wearing.
Soon ? – The official release date for Eilish’s Air Jordan 1 KOs and Air Jordan 15 has yet to be announced, but fans suspect the sneakers could drop around September 30, right before Eilish’s release. Happier than ever: a love letter to Los Angeles documentary. An exit would certainly help fans understand the film’s title better.
