The Nike Air Jordan 1 silhouette is world renowned, boasting many different styles, colorways and patterns, however this may be its first appearance as a pair of bedazzled sneakers. Designer Daniel Jacob took it upon itself to give the popular footwear staple a luxurious makeover by embedding its already high quality upper with 15,000 hand-set Swarovski crystals.

The bedazzled sneakers boast a classic colorway of black, white and red. While the chromatic nuance gives the footwear the sporty and casual appeal, Chicago-based Daniel Jacob's handy work definitely amps up the luxurious status of the piece.

Although there is no set price on the Nike Air Jordan 1, the bedazzled sneakers are not the designer's first venture in luxe handmade footwear. Last year, Jacob crafted a pair of gold-jeweled Air Jordan 1s that retailed at $6,500.
