Nike unveils the new Air Jordan 1 Defiant sneaker model, which are designed with inspiration drawn from its history, specifically from the 80s and 90s. The silhouette was a go-to option for rockstars during the era and it slowly shifted to be more prominent in basketball and skate culture overtime.
The model was popularly worn by Dave Mustaine, Slash, Kiedis, as well as Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Flea. The standout detail on the sneaker is the red Swoosh across the lateral side of the sneaker. It boasts resemblance to the red stitching accents found on leather jackets as well as the removable patchwork. The other side of the sneaker showcases a bright yellow Swoosh in order to nod to the 80s album hue. The sneaker's base is made from white leather before there are overlays of black leather.
